ADATA launches 2.5’’ ISSS333 series SSDs with Power Loss Protection

Using 3D TLC flash, this new 2.5-inch SATA III solid state drive features polymer capacitors for short circuit protection and PLP. It also supports wide-temperature resistance (-40°C to 85°C) to ensure optimal operation even in the harshest environments. ISSS333 offers LDPC (Low-Density Parity-Check) error correcting code technology to detect and fix a wider range of data errors for more accurate data transfers and a longer SSD lifespan up to par with 2D MLC SSDs.

What’s more, for added reliability and improved cost efficiency, the SSDs implement the company’s proprietary A+SLC technology which utilizes custom NAND Flash firmware with an A+ sorting algorithm to emulate SLC performance.

Capacities range from 64GB to 2TB.

Johanson’s PCB EMI Filter solutions featured in Today’s Motor Vehicles

Eliminating EMI/radio frequency interference (RFI) with traditional methods no longer suffices, given increases in operating circuit frequency – higher frequency noises that expand the affected frequency range – and electronic device miniaturization that shrinks the distance between source and victim.

See enclosed article which addresses how Johanson’s monolithic EMI filters suppress more RFI in a substantially smaller package than common mode chokes, feed-through filters, LC filters or combinations of these.

Johanson Dielectrics provides an online tool that simplifies such choices, see Johanson Dielectrics online
