Novachips M.2 2260 Scalar NS370 Series

Novachips Scalar 370 series M.2 SSD delivers leading performance and Quality of Service combined with worldclass reliability and endurance for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA)-based computers in capacities:  500GB and 1TB.

Novachips Scalar 370 series M.2 SSD uses a single-chip controller with a SATA interface on the system side and 8- channels of HLNAND Flash internally. Packaged in an industry standard M.2 form factor, the Novachips Scalar 370 series M.2 SSD integrates easily in existing storage infrastructures. The M.2 Type 2260 is caseless form factor ideally suited for ultra thin, mobile computing applications, which require mass storage in a very small footprint.

By combining HLNAND Flash Memory technology with SATA 6Gb/s interface support Novachips Scalar 370 series M.2 SSD delivers sequential read / write speeds of up to 500 MB/s. Novachips Scalar 370 series M.2 SSD is designed to use the SATA interface efficiently during both read and writes while delivering bandwidth-focused performance. HLSSD technology enables enhanced boot times, faster application load times, reduced power consumption, and extended reliability.
