Smart manufacturing requires 5G connectivity to enable factory automation and remote management. The surge in demand for cloud computing and network access control has made SSD security the main focus for industrial applications. SQFlash 720 series SSD offers large volume data transmissions and high-speed computing capabilities that are supported with complete TCG-OPAL security features that encrypt and secure data. Advantech’s SQFlash 720 series is supported with Advantech’s DeviceOn/SQ Manager, a software package that intelligently monitors performance and manages security from the network edge to the cloud. Using this software, management receives real-time data on equipment status such as operation loading, endurance, SMART information, read/write errors, and operating temperatures.
PCIe /NVMe performance and small form factor variants
SQFlash 720 series comes in multiple form factors compatible with most common embedded boards and system designs, which increases design flexibility for system integrators. One of these series—SQF-CM3 720 NVMe SSD is designed in a M.2 2230 A+E key form factor and is primarily used for Wi-Fi modules. This form factor is increasingly popular in industrial motherboard designs. SQF-CM3 720 NVMe SSD features a small form-factor design (22 x 30 mm), with a maximum 512GB capacity and supports PCIe Gen3 x2. This compact solution boosts total system performance. Future form factors are also in development— including SQF-CM4 M.2 2242, SQF-CM8 M.2 2280, and SQF-CFX CF Express.
Security Features for Data Protection
As data security and protection are vital, SSD security remains the focus of industrial applications. Security is one of the most important functions of SQFlash 720 series. By adding the latest TCG-OPAL 2.0 compliant security feature set, users can safely protect SSD data from unauthorized access. Additionally, Advantech provides security management utilities compatible with multiple OS. This security management utility is also available with Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) version for easy BIOS integration, yielding improved security. Similarly, all SQFlash 720 series feature McAfee anti-virus to protect the system from viruses and malware.
- Wide operating temperature support (0 ~ 70 °C/-40 ~ 85 °C) for diverse applications.
- Multiple form factors: M.2 (2230/ 2242/ 2280) and CF Express.
- PCIe / NVMe SSD come with TCG-OPAL functionality for enhanced security.
