Swissbit Industrial SATA SSD X-500 Series

The data rate reaches up to 240 MB/sec and an impressive 14’500 IOPS with 4 KB random accesses. The high end architecture utilizes up to 8 channels with the most reliable SLC NAND Flash on the market. Special features such as ATA-8, NCQ and TRIM support enable higher IOPS (input / output per second) and sequential performance providing the best combination of performance and reliability for industrial applications. Additionally, the S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) protocol with extended lifetime monitoring tools and software development kit enables the application or designer to have the full control of mission critical data all the time. The BCH-ECC (error correction code) ensures data reliability with the power fail protected X-500 series


  • NCQ, TRIM, Power Fail Protection, Latching SATA connector
  • ATA Security features set, Enhanced Secure Erase (SW/HW)
  • Temperature sensor, FW in field update – easy to use
  • S.M.A.R.T. support for LifeTimeMonitoring (Win, Linux & SDKs**)
