Adaptive Thermal Control™

Overcoming NVMe thermal challenges for uncompromised performance

Exascend’s proprietary technology, Adaptive Thermal Control™ (ATC), effectively tackles the inevitable challenges of overheating and thermal throttling in high-performance PCIe NVMe flash storage devices. ATC is designed to achieve an optimal balance between performance and device temperatures, ensuring consistent and exceptional performance over extended periods. Say goodbye to the frequent performance fluctuations often experienced with high-speed NVMe devices.

At the core of Exascend’s exclusive Adaptive Thermal Control™ lies in its sophisticated, internally developed firmware architecture. This architecture combines adaptive hardware power reduction with intelligent precision SSD performance management, resulting in a delicate equilibrium that maintains the highest sustainable performance while keeping the drive’s temperature below a threshold defined by the customer.

Central to this groundbreaking innovation is our patented intelligent adaptive algorithm, finely attuned to environmental conditions. It continuously monitors and adjusts the overall drive performance during its operation. When the environmental temperature rises, the algorithm triggers throttling to maintain stability, whereas lower temperatures prompt performance boosts.

Adaptive and Customizable

True to its name, Adaptive Thermal Control™ (ATC) seamlessly adjusts drive performance to accommodate changing temperatures or application read/write behavior. This adaptability ensures the highest possible sustained performance without any manual intervention from the user or host device. Exascend also offers comprehensive customization services, allowing customers to set personalized thermal thresholds for products featuring ATC. For thermally sensitive applications, a lower threshold can be established to initiate thermal control.
