SMART's new M.2 products come with proprietary SafeDATA technology, which combines unique power loss detection and hold-up circuitries with an advanced controller firmware algorithm to flush in-flight data from volatile cache to NAND Flash memory in order to safeguard data against corruption and/or loss during an SPL event. SafeDATA technology can prevent many system issues including as OS corruption. Mission critical applications can benefit from SMART's SafeDATA technology to ensure an SPL event does not cause system failure or loss of user data.

"SafeDATA technology addresses a growing need in applications where every piece of data is crucial and data loss cannot be allowed," said Mike McClimans, Sr. Director of SMART's Flash Product Line. "SMART is proud to introduce a line of M.2 SATA products designed for the specific needs of our OEM customers. In choosing SMART's M.2 SATA XR+ product with SafeDATA technology, customers can rest assured that their data is safe in mission critical applications."

SMART's M.2 SATA XR+ with SafeDATA technology is available for customer sampling now, with volume production in Q1 2015.
