RTD’s SSD24200HR high speed SSD storage module is based on the M.2 format (formerly called Next Generation Form Factor, or NGFF). Two M.2 Socket 3 interfaces leverage the PCIe/104 Type 2 connector, allowing the inserted devices to utilize a PCIe x4 link or SATA connection for data transfer to and from the host CPU.


The Non-Volatile Memory Express protocol (NVMe) enables high speed data transfer from the CPU’s PCIe x4 connection to the SSD device at theoretical transfer rates up to 985 MB/s per lane (PCIe revision 3.0). These low latencies make the SSD24200HR the perfect candidate for edge computing applications. Pair the SSD24200HR with RTD’s 25 MSPS data acquisition module (DM34216HR), and continuous data from four high speed A/Ds can simultaneously be written to SSD via the PCIe x4 connection without losing any data.


The dual M.2 sockets of the SSD24200HR enable a shorter stack height over traditional PCIe/104 storage technologies, making it particularly attractive to SWaP- sensitive applications which are often limited to one 2.5” SATA drive per board.


For applications where only one M.2 socket is required, RTD offers the SSD24100HR single socket ordering option.


These products are available as PCIe/104 modules, without the PCI bus connector installed. These part numbers are the SSD34200HR and SSD34100HR.


Compatibility Note: These M.2 M Key carriers are compatible with RTD's Intel Xeon and Core i3 (Kaby Lake) SBCs and RTD's Intel Core i7 (Chief River) SBCs. These modules are not compatible with other PCI Express CPUs such as those from the Intel Atom E3800 or Intel Core 2 Duo lines.
