Description: Transcend SATA Flash Module Horizontal - Solid state drive - 512 MB - internal - SATA 3Gb/s
Mfr Part #: TS512MSTM500-7H
Transcend's STM500 is a SATA II 3 Gbps SSD device built with high performance, quality flash memory assembled on a printed circuit board. It features cutting-edge technology to enhance product life and data retention. Designed with multitasking power users in mind, the STM500 is capable of running many demanding system applications, including specialized multimedia computing and advanced gaming. As a result, the STM500 is the ultimate performance upgrade for various applications, such as PCs, laptops, gaming systems, and handheld devices.
- Super slim
- Fully compatible with devices and OS that support the SATA II 3 Gbps standard
- Non-volatile flash memory for outstanding data retention
- Built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) functionality and wear-leveling algorithm ensures reliable data transfer
- Supports TRIM and NCQ command
- Supports hardware purge and write protect function
- Shock resistance
- Wear-leveling algorithm
The controller supports static/dynamic wear leveling. When the host writes data, the controller will find and use the block with the lowest erase count among the free blocks. This is known as dynamic wear leveling. When the free blocks' erase count is higher than a threshold value plus data blocks, it will activate the static wear leveling, replacing the not so frequently used user blocks with the high erase count free blocks.
- High-end applications
The STM500 boasts a super slim thickness to address the size limitations of today's modern applications, and other thin and light form factor devices. The slim STM500 uses 7 pin SATA connector and is backwards compatible with SATA I (1.5 Gbps) connection options. STM500 not only provides resistance from shock and vibration, but also offers hardware purge and write protect function.
- Hardware purge and write protect
The STM500 has built in hardware trigger for quick data erase and write protect of user specified area. These features may be enabled by simply connecting a switch to the designated pins.
