Apacer SDM7-SL 7P/180D DP (SATA Disk Module 7 7Pin/180 Degree DP) is a super-mini industrial SSD module that is made with rigid and flex boards featuring a hinged design that allows the boards to stack for better flexibility and shock absorption. The result achieves a boosted memory capacity of 256GB at four-channel speed, up to 525 MB/s read and 355 MB/s write. Besides, SDM7-SL DP features Apacer Multi-PowerPath technology that provides three methods to supply power to the host either via a conventional cable or cable-less design via pin7 or state-of-art 7+2 pin connector, which in turn offers developers maximum flexibility when it comes to board design.
With Apacer's SLC-lite technology, P/E cycle is enhanced up to 20,000 times. Moreover, the device adopts the latest page mapping file translation layer, thermal throttling and write protect function, making it a powerful yet compact solution for space-limited design. Last but not least, SDM7-SL DP can be delivered with Apacer CoreAnalyzer analysis software on request making it possible to quantify the actual workload on application which is critical in evaluating life cycle of host applications.
Innovative rigid-flex board design: miniaturized, compact, reinforced signals, improved shock resist
With innovative rigid-flex board design, the SDM7-M DP has a compact size that allows for not only flexible system integration but also improved signal transmission quality. Furthermore, by stacking two rigid boards with a flex board using a unique bend axis, and securing with screws, stability is achieved and shock-resistance is enhanced. To meet the stringent industrial-grade specifications and resist strong system vibration and falling impact, the new SDM7-M DP miniature SSD is designed with a unique hook that fits perfectly with the SATA slot on the motherboard, preventing cable from falling off or loosening due to impact or drop, satisfying system makers’ stringent requirement for high stability.
SLC-lite is Apacer's proprietary technology that strikes a cost-performance balance between MLC and SLC flash types and it is an ideal alternative solution for mission-critical embedded or industrial applications. It utilizes the infrastructure of MLC flash together with the special firmware to simulate the performance and durability of industrial grade flash SLC, which enable the maximum endurance, retention and performance but lower cost.
Plug-and-play Cable-less power Multi-PowerPath
Apacer’s Multi-PowerPath technology provides a three-option plug-and-play solution for power supply. In addition to using a conventional power cable, power can also be supplied through either Pin7 VCC or state-of-art 7+2 pin connector on the side with cable-less design, allowing an SSD to operate without external power supply, giving it the dual advantages of signal integrity and flexible configuration on the motherboard. With the exclusive, innovative power circuit mechanism, Multi-PowerPath protects miniature SSD from being damaged by overheating even when power is concurrently supplied via the three methods.
Thermal Management Technique (optional)
Thermal management technique can monitor the temperature of the SSD equipped with a built-in thermal sensor via S.M.A.R.T. commands. This method can ensure the temperature of the device stays within temperature limits by drive throttling, i.e. reducing the speed of the drive when the device temperature reaches the threshold level, so as to prevent overheating, guarantee data reliability, and prolong product lifespan. When the temperature exceeds the maximum threshold level, thermal throttling will be triggered to reduce performance step by step to prevent hardware components from being damaged. Performance is only permitted to drop to the extent necessary for recovering a stable temperature to cool down the device’s temperature. Once the temperature decreases to the minimum threshold value, transfer speeds will rise back to its optimum performance level.
