ADATA Industrial Unveils New Upgraded IM2P33E8 PLP PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 Solid State Drive

Taipei, Taiwan – Nov.17, 2021 – ADATA Technology (Taiwan Stock Exchange: 3260.TWO), a leading manufacturer of high-performance DRAM modules, NAND Flash products, and mobile accessories today announces the new upgraded ADATA IM2P33E8 PLP PCIe Gen3x4 M.2 2280 solid state drive (SSD) with Power Loss Protection (PLP) technology. Since its launch in 2019, the IM2P33E8 has been recognized by industry insiders and customers involved in 5G, IoT, cloud, AI and other industrial applications for its excellent performance, high capacities, and comprehensive data security mechanism.

In order to meet the requirements of industrial applications in the era of 5G, IoT, Cloud, AI, and big data analytics, ADATA is offering an SSD that is able to operate for longer after power outages and reduce the misidentification of bad blocks. This was achieved by the inclusion of tantalum polymer capacitors to the IM2P33E8 PLP. Tantalum polymer capacitors have the ability to reduce the detriment caused by power outages, most notably data loss.

The IM2P33E8 PLP utilizes PCIe Gen3x4 to provide excellent read and write performance of up to 3400/2800 MB per second and is equipped with 96-layer 3D TLC flash memory. It comes with capacities of up to 2TB and supports up to 3,000 program/erase (P/E) cycles for improved durability. In addition, the IM2P33E8 PLP also supports LDPC error correction to ensure accurate and stable transmissions.

Data security is critical for applications relating to 5G, IoT, Cloud, AI, and Big Data Analytics. To provide enhanced security, the IM2P33E8 PLP includes ADATA’s exclusive A+ Security data protection technologies, including data erase, AES 256-bit encryption, and others. What’s more, the IM2P33E8 PLP is also equipped with RAID Engine and End-to-End Data Path Protection technology. With these comprehensive mechanisms, the IM2P33E8 PLP is not only suitable for industrial computers and automation, but also for servers and data centers, healthcare, surveillance and transportation systems, and other applications.
