Apacer SLC-liteX technology combines Xioxia industrial 3D NAND TLC Flash chips and firmware that programs only one of the three bits. The results are outstanding. The SLC-liteX CH110 8GB memory card is our favourite.
Current manufacturing technology allows producing reliable 3D TLC NAND flash memory chips for industrial temperature range -40 to 85°C. In addition, Apacer SLC-liteX technology significantly increases program/erase cycles count.
3D TLC NAND flash based products are already dominating in SSD for consumers. Sophisticated NAND FLASH manufacturing technology, new advanced FLASH controllers and firmware now allow using 3D TLC NAND in industrial grade SSDs.
Apacer will launch 3D NAND TLC FLASH based products during the year 2018. Is there any reason to worry? Absolutely not.
