The PCIe or Peripheral Component Interconnect Express is a type of expansion slot that can also be identified as the standard internal interface. It is a standard of connecting high-speed components that creates a connection between a computer motherboard to the host and peripheral endpoints enabling expansions to the multiple slots on the board. The interface of Industrial NVMe SSD enables high bandwidth communication among the device, the motherboard, and the hardware.

PCIe plays a vital role in the current market. It is the most upgraded technology utilized by most giant multinational organizations, such as Hyundai, Toyota, and Google. It is extremely efficient for high-density application devices. The uprising demand for data storage has opened up a new dimension to the newer technologies like NVMe/NVMe-oF, storage-class memories, intent-based storage systems, and software-defined storage.

Being the World’s leading NAND flash storage manufacturer, Flexxon is offering the highly optimized PCIe NVMe SSD. The modern PCIe technology is engendered for solid-state drives and replaces them with the odd Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) technology.

  • Conforms the NVMe 1.3 Standard: Delivers effective performance method verification process along with the interface lineup. It easy to use, plug-and-play interface, and lightweight.
  • Consistent with PCIe Base Version 3.1: The specification implies the highest rates in data transfer, bandwidth, and frequency along with an upgraded scheme for both encoding and decoding.
  • High-Quality 3D NAND Flash Storage: Manufactures by using the newest 3D NAND innovation and the architecture includes 3D chipset layers slacking in the vertical orientation. It is suitable for embedded usage in compact and larger capacity drives for military, automotive, and so on.
  • The PCIe 3×2 and 3×4 Interfaces: Easily connects to the drive to both two-lane and four-lane configurations. Undoubtedly, FLEXXON PCIe NVMe SSD offers the most versatile interfaces.
  • Standard Range of Form Factors: Widely used in various industries in diversities of standard form factors to make it compatible with the applications.
  • Supports TCG OPAL/AES/PYRITE: Supports several storage technologies/devices so the drive can be used with these data handling and storage solutions.
  • Dynamic SLC Caching: Enables or creates SLC caches on an empty SSD and attains higher speed writes in research for resigning direct-to-TLC speed.
  • Enhanced Wear leveling: Endures with a longer lifespan for the wear leveling technique. Writing is well-distributed on every layer and the cells lodge an equal write enabling evenly wearing.
  • Bad block management: Keeps itself immune from data corruption as bad block management allows the drive to classify and label bad blocks and stops writing data on these “unusable blocks” to increase the reliability of the SSD

  • Advanced Security Features: Provides immense security and enhances reliability to protect confidential data.
  • Thermal throttling: Reduces the speed of SSD to dissipate the excessive heat within the SSD chipset if the temperature significantly rises.
  • Power loss protection (PLP): Prevents accidental data loss while writing when an abrupt power failure occurs.
