1. INTRODUCTION
1.1. General Description
UDinfo’s AIC(Add-in Card) PCIe SSD delivers all the advantages of flash disk technology with PCIe Gen3 x4
interface, including being compliant with standard AIC(Add-in Card) HHHL form factor. Its capacity could
provide a wide range up to 1,920GB. Moreover, it can reach up to 2,800MB/s read as well as 1,550MB/s
write high performance based on Toshiba’s 15nm Toggle MLC flash (with 256MB/512MB/1024MB/2048MB
DDR3 cache enabled and measured by CrystalDiskMark v5.0). Meanwhile, the power consumption of the
AIC(Add-in Card) PCIe SSD is much lower than traditional hard drives.

3.2. MTBF
MTBF, an acronym for Mean Time between Failures, is a measure of a device’s reliability. Its value
represents the average time between a repair and the next failure. The measure is typically in units of hours.
The higher the MTBF value, the higher the reliability of the device. The predicted result of UDinfo’s AIC PCIe
SSD is up to 2,000,000 hours.
