Introducing The Advantech SQF 730 Series: Performant, Low-Power PCIe Gen 4 SSD


Taipei, Taiwan, May 2023 — Advantech, a leading global provider of industrial flash storage solutions, is proud the announce the SQFlash 730 series. The SQFlash 730 M.2 2280 SSD is the newest edition to Advantech’s NVMe SSD product line. It leverages high-performance main control IC chips to achieve Gen.4 read/write speeds up to 5,000MB/s and 3,900MB/s respectively. Powered by advanced error correction mechanisms, the SQFlash 730 series supports a wide temperature range and low power consumption for applications in rugged environments. In sum, the SQFlash 730 series delivers industrial-grade performance & reliability that empowers rugged applications. 

High-Speed Read/Write Performance

An article by StorageNewsletter indicates that the overall market size of the NVMe industry is expected to grow from $44.6 billion in 2020 to $163.5 billion in 2025. In the HPC storage industry, the PCIe Gen.4 specifications is expected to reach 72% in 2023. As the demand for hardware equipment and data flow increases, high-performance and high-capacity storage devices are required to meet industry trends. The new SQF 730 series M.2 2280 SSD product, is equipped with a high-performance main control IC chip that supports faster and more stable data access operations. The SQF 730 series leverages advanced main control IC technology to achieve Gen.4 read/write speeds — reaching a read speed of 5,000MB/s and a write speed of 3,900MB. This product also follows NVMe 1.4 protocol specifications for lower latency and higher throughput, making data read and write speeds smoother.

Low Power Consumption Ensures Reliability and Durability

The low power consumption of the SQFlash 730 series produces an energy-efficient storage solution. This solution features an LDPC ECC engine, advanced error correction mechanisms, and support for 270bits/2KB capabilities. By detecting and correcting errors in real time, the engine can reduce the risk of data loss or corruption. Additionally, the use of LDPC codes and ECC mechanisms increases the system’s ability to withstand interference during data transmission. This combination of features make SQFlash 730 more reliable and durable. It creates a performant, robust, and dependable solution for a wide range of applications.   

SQFlash 730 features an advanced power management function (PMIC), with a max. consumption of 5.3W. This is much lower other solutions which typically consume 8W. This reduction can be achieved without sacrificing performance, helping businesses reduce energy costs and their carbon footprint. This combination of features and functions make SQFlash 730 and excellent choice for applications in transportation, logistics, and energy — where power efficiency and sustainability are critical factors.

Designed to Deliver Optimum Performance At a Wide Range of Temperatures

The Advantech SQFlash 730 series supports an operating temperature range that accommodates rugged applications in diverse industries (-40 - 85 °C). Military applications require rugged storage solutions capable of withstanding extreme temperatures and harsh conditions. Likewise, outdoor workstations need solutions for use in different temperatures. The Advantech SQFlash 730 series meets these needs while ensuring uninterrupted operation.
