Taipei, Taiwan V Monday, July 02, 2012, APRO, a leading flash storage manufacturer with rich experience of the various industrial, mission critical & military applications, has announced MUSE Series Industrial Metal 2.5 SATA III Solid State Drive(SSD) with both SLC and MLC NAND Flash memory chip.

APRO MUSE Series Industrial Metal 2.5 SATA III SSD includes MUSE-B Series with SLC NAND Flash in capacities of 32GB, 64GB and 128GB; MUSE-C Series with MLC NAND Flash in capacities of 64GB,128GB,256GB and 512GB. The used flash memories are Toshiba toggle NAND type flash memory chips, which is acknowledge as one of the most reliable flash chip storage solutions in industrial and military field. The standard operating temperature range of MUSE Series is 0XC ~ 70XC and optional -40XC ~ +85XC for rugged applications and the warranty includes the longest up to 5 years.

APRO high performance MUSE Series SSD is a trendy and pioneering for SATA III, we believe MUSE can make a breakthrough of the industrial storage device and will be a milestone. The intention of developing MUSE series is not to be the fastest in the world, the MUSE series is dedicated to have high performance as well as highest possible reliability and lifetime of a SSD for critical application. said by APRO Product Manager, Andy Lin.

APRO MUSE Series Industrial Metal 2.5 SATA III SSD support SATA Gen. III (6.0Gbits) and electrically complies downward with SATA Gen-I (1.5Gbits) and Gen-II (3.0Gbits) standard. The integrated high performance SATA Gen-III controller provides optimal and brilliant speed, combined with an extremely stable IOPS behavior. MUSE Series provide also a built-in DDRIII cache for high performances. The data transfer performance under AHCI-mode by sustained read is up to 475 MB/sec for MUSE-B SLC and 540 MB/sec for MUSE-C MLC, and sustained write is up to 356 MB/sec for MUSE-B SLC, 444 MB/sec for MUSE-C MLC. MUSE Series is also featuring S.M.A.R.T. and TRIM functions for intelligent applications as well as enhanced ECC and global wear leveling for enhanced reliability and lifetime.
