News: JMR Announces Hand Held, Bus-Powered, High Performance PCIe SSD Storage Flash Drive with Thunderbolt 2 Interface at NAB 2015
New portable bus-powered drive requiring no external power source, available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB storage capacities,
(April 14, 2015) JMR Electronics, Inc. a leading manufacturer and systems integrator of scalable storage solutions announced today the debut of its ultra-compact PCIe Flash Drive with Thunderbolt 2 interface at this year's NAB 2015 show, in the Las Vegas Convention Center in booth #SL12117.
The new portable bus-powered drive requiring no external power source, available in 128GB, 256GB and 512GB (1TB available Q3) storage capacities, is the ideal high performance alternative to USB thumb drives, portable SATA based hard disk drives and current SSD storage products in the market. The PCIe based Thunderbolt 2 equipped drive easily connects to a compatible Mac® or Windows® computer with a Thunderbolt interface, or at the end of a Thunderbolt device daisy chain, via its attached Thunderbolt cable.
JMR's PCIe Flash Drive leverages the latest generation M.2 PCIe SSD module, which is the fastest standard SSD type now available, is coupled with a 20Gb/s Thunderbolt 2 interface that provides sustained file transfer speeds of over 1,000 MB/s. The unit incorporates a PCIe Generation 3 flash controller, enabling it to easily outperform 6Gb/s SATA SSDs and USB 3.0 flash drives. The flash drive is also compatible with OS X 10.8.5+ (including Yosemite), Microsoft® Windows 8 and 7, and Windows Server 2012 and 2008.
To keep the size ultra-compact, the new JMR Flash Drive sports a proprietary heat sink technology integrated into the rugged aluminum enclosure to transfer heat away from the SSD, thus significantly extending its life span while offering complete silent operation.
"Our new PCIe Flash Drive is the ideal, portable and ultra light-weight storage complement for creative professionals, digital imaging technicians and cinematographers needing a high performance shuttle drive capable of easily recording and playing back HD, 2K and 4K video content for in-house and offsite workflows — from viewing and editing digital dailies, to being used as a scratch disk or ruggedized transport medium," said Josef Rabinovitz, president and CEO of JMR Electronics. "I believe that new PCIe Flash Drive technologies such as ours will quickly displace current professional portable storage offerings, while setting new milestones for performance, portability and affordability for the industry.
