Our Industrial pSLC offering provides >6 times Industrial MLC endurance for slight premium in price. Our Industrial pSLC Flash Storage Devices are built with pseudo SLC NAND memory, which operates MLC NAND in a 1-bit per cell mode versus its normal 2-bit per cell configuration. Industrial pSLC products have locked-BOM for as long as achievable.

An Overview of Pseudo-SLC NAND

Pseudo-SLC NAND uses MLC NAND in a single bit per cell mode, thereby giving it >6 times the endurance of the same MLC NAND cell used in its traditional two bit per cell operation. Cactus Industrial pSLC uses this pSLC and is an upgrade from our Industrial MLC which uses MLC NAND.
