32GB capacity SSD drives in BGA package with SATA AND PATA interface

Silicon Motion Technology Corporation has introduced its FerriSSD product line, small sized single-chip Solid State Drive with standard SATA or PATA interface in BGA form factor that allows for easy integration of embedded storage into industrial and commercial devices and applications. Silicon Motion says with both commercial-grade (0 Deg c to 70 Deg C) and industrial-grade (-40 Deg C to 85 Deg C) temperature support, as well as enhanced reliability and security combined with high performance and low power consumption, FerriSSD is the ideal embedded storage solution for industrial PCs, tablets, navigation devices, point-of-sale terminals, medical devices, test instruments, and other specialty devices.

"We are very excited about the introduction of our FerriSSD product line," said Wallace Kou, President and CEO of Silicon Motion. "FerriSSD is a plug and play storage solution designed for easy integration and manufacturing, which allows for faster time-to-market of industrial and commercial devices than other competing solutions. Utilizing Silicon Motion's advanced controller technologies enable FerriSSD to provide the best data integrity, endurance and reliability in the market. We are pleased to announce that FerriSSD has already received multiple design-wins for industrial PCs, POS terminals, automotive navigation systems and testing equipment from manufacturers in the US, Europe, Japan and Taiwan."

FerriSSD measures 16mm X 20mm and scale in storage densities to up to 32GB using SLC memory and 64GB using MLC memory. FerriSSD Uses Silicon Motion's flash memory controller tech and ECC engine supporting robust data protection. Silicon Motion says Unique to FerriSSDs is its SSD status monitoring application which integrates its proprietary S.M.A.R.T. ("Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology") and SSD LifeGuard technologies which provide real-time SSD monitoring and warning capabilities. FerriSSD is RoHS compliant and is also halogen and lead free.
