Taipei, Taiwan ¡V Tuesday, September 2, 2013. APRO, one of the world's leading manufacturers of flash memory storages for Industrial & Military applications, introduced new lines of 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SSDs into the market - HERMES-ER Series Industrial 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SLC SSD with built-in DDR II SDRAM and HERMES-E Series High Performance 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II MLC SSD. The new generations of HERMES Series SATA II SSDs, HERMES-ER/E Series are equipped with a new version of controller and have the features of previous models, but with enhanced performance and extended capacity options.

SSD products with high-speed SATA interface have become the main trend in the solid state drive market. APRO¡¦s HERMES-ER/E Series 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SSDs supports both SATA I (1.5Gb/s) and SATA II (3.0 Gb/s) protocols. The SSD drives comply with SATA 1.0a and SATA 2.6 specifications and support commercial (0¢XC to +70¢XC) and extended (-40¢XC to +85¢XC) operating temperatures to meet various application requirements.

HERMES-ER Series Industrial 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SLC SSD is built with 512 Mbits DDR II SDRAM cache and designed for mission-critical applications that require SATA II interface SSD with improved random data transfer rate and speed. The SLC SSD drives support sequential read speeds of up to 249MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 215MB/sec under AHCI mode and are available in capacity from 8GB to 128GB.

HERMES-E Series High Performance 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II MLC SSD with MLC technology is a cost-effective, high capacity and performance-driven solution designed for enterprise grade applications. The MLC SSD drives deliver sequential read speeds of up to 190MB/sec and sequential write speeds of up to 130MB/sec with a wide range of capacity options from 16GB to 256GB.

To monitor the disk status and maintain the SSD¡¦s performance at the same time, APRO¡¦s HERMES-ER/E Series 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SSD supports Window-7 TRIM Command and S.M.A.R.T (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) to enhance the SSDs¡¦ stability, durability, and efficacy.
To achieve maximum SSDs¡¦ lifespan and reliability, static wear-leveling algorithm and 16bit/24bit per 512 bytes block of ECC are applied to the SSD drives. Both 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SSDs are compliant with MIL-STD-810F specifications, as well as RoHS/REACH regulations to ensure the devices can perform consistently under humidity, vibration and shock while ensuring a high level of protection of human health and the environment.

Both APRO¡¦s HERMES-ER and HERMES-E Series 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SSDs are designed and manufactured for applications that require leading performance, reliability, endurance and quality, especially where space constraints are a concern. The SSD drives can be excellent upgrades for small form factor applications, such as notebooks and Ultra Mobile PCs, due to its small size and low power consumption. The 1.8¡¨ micro SATA SSD drives are also ideal optimal solutions for networking, entertainment, monitoring systems, image processing, and other enterprise grade or industrial grade applications.

1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SSDs are covered under APRO warranty. SLC based HERMES-ER Series products are accompanied with warranty up to 5 years depending on the operating temperature and standard 2 years of warranty for MLC based HERMES-E Series products. APRO supports fixed solution products to customers for long term supplies and HERMES-ER and HERMES-E Series 1.8¡¨ micro SATA II SSDs are expected to be delivered until the end of 2014 or even longer.
