The U-50n flash drive key has a specified operational temperature range from -40 to 85°C and comes in a metal housing with 30µ” gold connector that withstands frequent insertions. The molded COB (Chip On Board) package makes the device shock- and vibration-proof. Manufactured and tested in Swissbit’s own production site in Berlin, the U-50n features sophisticated page-based firmware which accelerates random write operation while significantly reducing write amplification. Sequential read/write access is 135/65 MB/s while random operation excels with 2500/700 IOPS. While most USB 3.1 consumer drives are optimized for high sequential speed, the U-50n is tuned for industrial usage. Swissbit’s data care management runs in the background and constantly monitors the health of the data, refreshes weak pages, and ensures protection against sudden power losses. The U-50n is based on 15nm MLC NAND flash. Its durability and frozen BOM (Bill Of Material) makes the Nano attractive for long-term usage.
