Combining the benefits of 3D TLC and SLC NAND

The pace of innovation in the flash storage sector is relentless – continuously bringing exciting new innovations and ever-higher performance to every type of application. 

The 3D TLC NAND flash type is at the forefront of innovation, enabling extreme storage density and capacities we are used to only seeing in hard disk drives (HDDs).

However, newer is not always better – at least not in every conceivable way. 3D TLC’s earlier predecessor, SLC NAND, typically offers both higher performance and higher durability, albeit at a significantly higher cost and at the expense of storage density.

Pseudo SLC (pSLC) is a technology available with Exascend flash storage devices that combines the benefits of cutting-edge 3D TLC NAND and blazing-fast SLC by running the 3D TLC NAND in SLC mode.
