E1.S SSDs: Redefining Data Storage for Harsh Environments

In the ever-evolving world of data storage, the E1.S form factor for solid-state drives (SSDs) is not just revolutionizing enterprise and data center storage – it’s also carving a niche in the rugged realms of industrial and automotive applications. This compact powerhouse offers exceptional advantages that make it the ideal solution for environments with extreme conditions and rigorous demands.

Compact Efficiency

At just 31.5mm by 111.49mm, the E1.S SSD’s dimensions are perfectly suited for 1U height rack storage servers, enabling efficient space utilization that the U.2/U.3 form factor can’t match. In space-constrained industrial and automotive setups, the E1.S SSD is a space-saving marvel.

Thermal Excellence

Overheating is a perpetual challenge in high-performance SSDs, particularly in demanding settings. E1.S SSDs excel in thermal management. At the same power input, E1.S SSDs outperform M.2 SSDs, delivering superior thermal performance. This not only leads to improved energy efficiency but also enhances product longevity, a crucial factor in industrial and automotive applications. Furthermore, E1.S SSDs can be configured with heat spreaders as well as asymmetric (15mm or 25mm) and symmetric (9.5mm) enclosures, catering to diverse thermal environments with precision.

Performance Comparison

With the same capacity and similar PCB temperatures, the E1.S maintains a write performance of 3000 MB/s without entering thermal throttling, whereas the M.2’s write performance drops to about 200 MB/s.

Graph 1: 7.68TB E1.S with PCB temperatures of 100°C and sustained write performance at 3000 MB/s.

Graph 2: 7.68TB M.2 with PCB temperatures of 100°C enters thermal throttling, dropping performance to 200MB/s.

With the same capacity and similar environmental temperatures, the E1.S maintains a write performance of 3000 MB/s without entering thermal throttling, whereas the M.2’s write performance drops to about 750 MB/s.

Graph 3: 1.92TB E1.S with environmental temperatures of 70°C and sustained write performance at 3000 MB/s.

Graph 4: 1.92TB M.2 with environmental temperatures of 70°C enters thermal throttling, dropping performance to 750MB/s.

Unrivaled Capacity

The extended length of the E1.S form factor allows for the incorporation of more NAND package chips on the printed circuit board (PCB) than M.2 2280. This results in higher capacity SSDs, a crucial feature for industrial and automotive applications where data density is a priority. The E1.S SSD’s ability to deliver greater storage capacity per unit volume is a boon for these sectors, enabling seamless data management and processing.

Serviceability Redefined

In the fast-paced world of industrial and automotive operations, downtime is not an option. The E1.S SSD’s hot-pluggable design and health indicator LEDs offer improved serviceability, allowing for the swift identification and replacement of failed drives without disrupting system operations. This feature is particularly invaluable in environments where continuous operation is paramount.

Performance under Pressure

The E1.S SSD’s superior thermal management not only prevents overheating but also translates into enhanced overall performance. The ability to operate at higher read and write speeds without compromising efficiency positions the E1.S SSD as the go-to choice for industrial and automotive applications where reliability and speed are non-negotiable.

Tailored-Made Flexibility

System designers in industrial and automotive settings face diverse challenges and spatial constraints. The E1.S form factor, with its compact size, offers flexibility in configuration options, empowering designers to choose the most suitable setup based on specific requirements. This adaptability ensures that the E1.S SSD seamlessly integrates into a variety of applications, providing tailored solutions for every need.
