Our Products
The Novachips SCALAR SSD is a High End SATA Flash Drive in 2,5 " Format with SATA III Interface, designed with MLC Flash Memory. At higher capacities the HyperLink (HL) NAND Technology with a new type of Daisy-Chain-Ring-Topology is used. So the SCALAR offers excellent performance and extraordinary high capacities.
Novachips SSD are characterised by long lifetime, low Power consumption and a very high data security. Therefore they are optimally suited for usage in enterprise systems.
Some configurations are certified to the FIPS-140 2 standard for the highest security requirements.
The Novachips SCALAR SATA SSD is available in capacities starting at 60GB up to 20TB in the designs Commercial, Enterprise and Military Grade.
Configurations with pseudoSLC Flash are also possible.
