IRVINE, California - Sonnet 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 aluminum 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 Gbps and 6 Gbps 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 aluminum 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.
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 in the smaller drive to 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 (part number TP-25ST35TA) is available immediately with a suggested retail price of $39.95.
