Sonnet Launches Transposer Universal 2.5-inch SSD To 3.5-inch Drive Tray Adapter

Sonnet Technologies has introduced its Transposer universal 2.5-inch SSD to 3.5-inch drive tray adapter.
Transposer secures the smaller SSD drive to its heat-sinking aluminium frame and the assembly is readily installed into any 3.5-inch drive tray. With a 2.5 inch SSD attached, the Transposer adapter mimics the geometry of a 3.5-inch drive and mounts equally well to trays that bottom-mount or side-mount 3.5-inch drives.
The Transposer adapter's SATA connector is positioned to plug into a backplane as the tray is inserted.
Transposer is compatible with 3 Gb/s and 6 Gb/s SATA (or single connection SAS) SSDs and hard disk drives. The Sonnet adapter supports 7mm to 15mm 2.5-inch drives. Standard position mounting holes on the bottom and side of Transposer give it the flexibility to be used anywhere a 3.5-inch drive is normally used, including computer drive bays and side or bottom-mount trays for drive enclosures.
Transposer's specially engineered, open-frame aluminium heatsink design allows heat to be conducted and convected away, which is important to maintain the long-term reliability of high-performance SSDs and hard drives.
Robert Farsworth, CEO of Sonnet Technologies, said: "Transposer takes the guesswork out of securely adapting an SSD for use in 3.5-inch drive trays because it works with every tray and because it keeps the drives properly cooled. We are proud to note that Transposer, like many of our products, is made in the USA."
Transposer's connectors are attached to a pass-through circuit board. Because no bridge chip is used, Transposer will not cause any loss in data transfer speeds, and the fixed mount connectors assure reliable connections. Simply plug the smaller drive the Transposer's mating connector, secure it with the included screws, and use the combined assembly anywhere a 3.5-inch drive may go.
Transposer is available now.
