Widely utilized in various high-end embedded applications, Transcend’s 3D NAND and MLC NAND-based SSDs are ready to meet the demands of embedded storage. However, for specialized applications that require SLC-level performance and endurance, Transcend offers 3D NAND and MLC NAND-based SLC Mode SSDs to simulate the behaviour of SLC flash.

Transcend’s SLC Mode SSDs deliver high transfer speeds—especially random read and write speeds—and endurance of up to 100K P/E cycles, all at a much lower price point. Its high endurance and cost-effectiveness are ideal for always-on embedded systems and write-intensive applications.


  • Built-in Corner Bond technology increases the reliability of M.2/mSATA SSDs under high thermal and vibratory situations
  • 30µ” gold finger PCBs for M.2/mSATA SSDs protect components from potential chemical pollution, enhancing endurance and ensuring stable signal transmission
  • Anti-sulfur technology implemented in some models to prevent sulfurization in polluted environments
  • Various form factors including 2.5″, M.2, and mSATA
  • Supports Transcend’s Control Center management software and S.M.A.R.T. analysis to update firmware in real time and remotely monitor SSD status
  • Fixed bill of materials (BOM) and embedded-grade product lifecycle management

Target Applications

  • Road monitoring systems
  • Enterprise servers
  • Outdoor digital signage
  • Data centres
  • Digital entertainment systems
  • Ruggedized computing
