Redefining Flash Storage from the inside out
• SATA 6.0Gbps host interface
• Breakthrough capacity and scalability — up to 8TB SSD in 2.5" form factor with a single
SSD controller
• Revolutionary HyperLink NAND (HLNAND) technology — no practical limit on number of
devices per channel with ring architecture
• Excellent performance — point-to-point connection provides excellent signal integrity—
540MB/s for sequential Read/Write, up to 100K/90K IOPS for random Read/Write
• Low power consumption — single controller, low voltage IO, un-terminated bus, data
truncation, hierarchical MCP
• Reduced system cost — single controller, small footprint, reduced networking
infrastructure for lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
• Ultimate reliability — optimized for wide temperature operation from -40°C to 85°C
• Full End-to-End Data Protection - with advanced error correction scheme and in-transit
data protection
• Ultra-high capacity solid state storage solution for various rugged and mission critical
• Supported sector size: 512 Bytes
• Hardware-based 256-bit encryption Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology
• Self-encrypting models conform to TCG Opal 2.0 specification
• Hot-pluggable removal and insertion providing in-service replacement options
• Enhanced Power Loss Data Protection — securing data responded to host with internal
power back-up solution
• Power and thermal throttling — auto peak power control by monitoring on-board
temperature sensor
• 4TB/8TB capacity available in 7mm / 15mm z-heights for space-constrained applications
As enterprises and data centers are increasingly investing
in “Big Data” and other memory-intensive applications,
they are adopting Solid-State-Drive (SSD) technology to
power these initiatives. Novachips’ Scalar-series HLSSD
is a unique solid state drive designed to deliver a massive
storage capacity and performance revolution for enterprise applications. Scalar does this by combining unique
HyperLink NAND flash memory technology with comprehensive endurance management firmware and power
loss data protection techniques. The result is extended
reliability, endurance, and sustained performance over the
life of the SSD. The Novachips’ SSD family will enhance
data center performance, conserve power and cooling
resources and maximize space efficiency. Since Novachips
brings proven SSD expertise in MLC SATA and PCIe design,
firmware, reliability, customer qualification and system
integration, the Novachips’ Scalar-series HLSSD family
breaks the capacity bottlenecks associated with the
conventional NAND flash IO constraints. Scale up your
data center storage with the Novachips’ Scalar-series
HLSSD family’s capacity and performance.

1. One gigabyte (GB) is equal to one billion bytes, one terabyte (TB) equals 1,000GB (one trillion bytes), and one petabyte (PB) equals 1,000TB (one quadrillion bytes) when referring to hard drive or solid state drive capacity.
Accessible capacity will vary from the stated capacity due to formatting and partitioning of the drive, the computer’s operating system, and other factors.
2. MTBF target is based on a sample population and is estimated by statistical measurements and acceleration algorithms under nominal operating conditions. MTBF ratings are not intended to predict an individual drive’s
reliability. MTBF does not constitute a warranty.
3. Based on internal testing, performance may be lower depending upon host device, OS and application.
4. Based on JESD218 standard with JESD219 workload.
