The new ATP 2242 and 2260 will features all modern SSD features like S.M.A.R.T monitor, TRIM and Advanced Wear-Leveling), as well as Power Cycling Protection (PowerProtector) and Data Integrity Protection (AutoRefresh).
ATP is all working on slimSATA and mSATA storage devices which will be making their debut along with the 2242 and 2260 M.2 solid state drives.
