Data integrity is ensured by static wear leveling and Reed -Solomon ECC (8bit BCH).

The Ridata 32, 64 GB and 128 GB Ridata Ultra -S Plus MLC stores two bits of data per cell, providing consistent, fast performance and extremely low -power consumption. Its lightweight is ideal for the performance -driven and rugged environments that laptops and other mobile computing devices experience. Laptop compatibility is ensured by a traditional Serial ATA (SATA) connection with 7 -pin signal segment and 15 -pin power segment.

User time on a laptop or other mobile computing application is dramatically extended, due to the drive's low -five -volt power consumption. With no mechanical parts, low battery usage and minimal heat generation the Ridata SSD drive is a natural alternative for a greener environment. Meeting bus interface industry standard Serial ATA (SATA) ensures no host compatibility or upgrading issues. The Ridata SSD offers reliable temperature (0 to 70C) resistance, assuring long -lasting data storage.
