Sonnet Announces New PCIe Flash Drive

News Image
Sonnet has introduced the Fusion PCIe Flash Drive, a pocket-sized solid-state drive (SSD) storage device, with 256GB or 512GB storage capacity. It is the newest of Sonnet's Thunderbolt 2 technology products.

The Sonnet flash drive serves as an alternative to USB thumb drives and portable SATA-based hard disk drive and SSD storage products, and connects to a compatible Mac or Windows computer, or at the end of a Thunderbolt device daisy chain, via an attached 0.5-meter Thunderbolt cable.

Sonnet designed the Fusion PCIe Flash Drive around the latest generation M.2 PCIe SSD module, and a 20Gbps Thunderbolt 2 interface that provides the necessary bandwidth for the device to sustain ultra-high file transfer speeds – fast enough to support 4K workflows. Capable of transferring files at over 1200 MB/s, the Fusion PCIe Flash Drive's SSD module incorporates a PCIe Gen 3 flash controller, enabling the device to outperform 6Gbps SATA SSDs and USB 3.0 flash drives.

Measuring 1.75 inches wide by 4 inches deep by 0.8 inches tall, the Fusion PCIe Flash Drive's rugged enclosure is crafted out of aluminum, which effectively transfers heat from the SSD and allowed Sonnet to design the device without a fan to enable silent operation. The design also enabled the device to be bus-powered and require no power adapter.

"The Fusion PCIe Flash Drive leverages the latest advancements in PCIe SSD design and Thunderbolt 2 technology, enabling Sonnet to offer a storage device that fits neatly in the palm of your hand yet delivers the blazing-fast performance of a multi-drive RAID storage system many times its size," said Robert Farnsworth, Sonnet Technologies CEO. "We think this will become an indispensable accessory for the creative professional."

The Fusion PCIe Flash Drive was designed for anybody requiring high-speed storage capabilities. OS X users may install the operating system on the Sonnet device to create a fast boot drive, while OS X and Windows users can use the Fusion PCIe Flash Drive for instant-access media storage or as a high-performance scratch disk. The Fusion PCIe Flash Drive was designed and built by Sonnet in California.

Compatible with OS X 10.8.5+ (including Yosemite), Microsoft Windows 8 and 7, and Windows Server 2012 and 2008, the Fusion PCIe Flash Drive will be demonstrated at NAB 2015, booth SL10824. Sonnet expects to make the new drive available in June 2015, at $499 for 256GB and $799 for 512GB.
