Icon17 Adtron Introduces 160Gb Solid State Flash Disk

IDE and SATA 2.5-inch Flash Disks Package Up To 160 GBytes Max Capacity; Include Advanced Data Security Features

PHOENIX, AZ - February 20, 2007 - Solid state flash disk manufacturer Adtron Corporation, announces today the immediate availability of its most advanced generation of the Adtron Flashpak® Family of products including the IDE and Serial ATA (SATA) flash disk models, the I25FB and A25FB, respectively. The products in this announcement include the industry's highest capacity 2.5" SLC NAND flash disk drives at 160 GBytes, only available from Adtron.

"New geometries and chip densities in SLC NAND enable Adtron to significantly expand the capacities of its industry leading high performance products," stated Alan Fitzgerald, Adtron Chief Technology Officer. "In addition, the economics of these new flash drives combined with the increased capacities in standard form factors, greatly expand the applications among our historic flash disk customers in the industrial and defense markets, as well as addressing bandwidth intensive server and storage acceleration applications in a much broader emerging market previously the domain of HDD products".

ArrayPro™ Performance Engine: This new generation of Flashpak flash disk incorporates advancements in the Adtron ArrayPro™ performance engine that provides parallel access and management of flash arrays within a single SSD. As Alan Fitzgerald describes, "ArrayPro separates an Adtron flash disk from the low-end single array SSDs and those that employ caching technologies that require battery back-up and whose performance are highly application dependent."The Adtron products deliver sustained read/write performance in the 70MB/sec range, delivering the solid state industry's best performance and far exceeding the capabilities of rotating media (HDDs).

Erasure™ Data Security: Beyond its leading performance this "next generation" solid state flash disk drive family will address a broad range of Data Security requirements meeting the needs of commercial enterprises and addressing the most stringent Military and Intelligence Standards defined. The Adtron Erasure Data Security Suite includes access control features and offers unparalleled, high speed data elimination including clear and sanitize functions at the most trusted levels defined today.

Shipments have begun in February 2007 with both commercial and industrial temperature models are available. For more information, contact Adtron Sales at 602-735-0300 or by e-mail at

Sustained 70MB/s? That would be more than 1st gen Raptors o_O

no price given tough

I wonder if any company knows that the first company to offer flash HDs on Newegg and other channels will get a significant advantage in the mind of the consumers (and there are plenty of rich people that can afford 1000$ HDs).

If they can truly support 70MB/s sustained read & writes, then they would be capable of outperforming even the latest drives such as the Seagate 320mb 16mb cache PNP drive, which gets about 64-66mb/s average read, not even mentioning the near instant access times....

They could probably ask for two arms and a leg if it really is true.

I've heard of flash drives being built so that they are really two drives in a single package, I forget the key term for the design. They built the NAND chip and controller on both sides of the PCB stick, which lets them greatly increase performance... Do you think this might be the case here, or are they simply overinflating their product's capabilities?

Edit: Dailytech got ahold of this one, they are stating:

The I25B IDE SSD offers read speeds of up to 70MB/sec and write speeds of up to 60MB/sec. The A25FB is just a tad bit slower at 65MB/sec and 55MB/sec respectively.
