Western Digital is now shipping its new high performance WD SiliconDrive N1x 2.5-inch solid state drives or SSDs.
The new SSDs tout fast read/write speeds in high capacities and are designed for embedded system OEM applications that require superior performance, high reliability and long product life. The company said single-level cell (SLC) -based WD SiliconDrive N1x SSDs are an ideal storage solution for a wide range of embedded system OEM applications in growing markets such as automotive and transportation, data center, communications infrastructure, video surveillance and industrial automation.
The new WD SiliconDrive N1x family of products complements the recently announced multi-level cell (MLC) -based WD SiliconEdge Blue SSDs, which offer a cost-effective alternative for less-demanding OEM applications while still providing high read/write speeds and high random write IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) performance, according to the company.
