Delivering Speed, Durability, and Efficiency
SSDs store information on flash memory, making them faster and more efficient than hard disk drives. But they are also more expensive and provide less storage capacity. Application needs will determine which data storage and processing technology is best.
Several protective measures should be put into place to protect sensitive data from fluctuations in power and electrostatic discharge.
When designing solid-state drives, engineers should consider the following factors:
P-channel MOSFETs in the power management unit (PMU) for power sequencing
Low power consumption products to increase overall efficiency
Higher-rated ESD devices for interfacing protection
