Storage memory has always been an important part of computers and as time goes on, their importance becomes more and more apparent. Over the years, there have been dramatic advances in the storage memory industry to speed up the processing of computers. Advances in the storage memory industry are the result of years of effort and investment by large companies in this field. ADATA is one of the old companies that is a familiar name to many hardware enthusiasts.
E-Data started its operations in Taiwan many years ago and today, it has become a very large company, and thanks to the knowledge of its specialists and infrastructure, it produces flagship memories. Taiwanese company E-Data belongs to the category of Fabless companies (manufacturing without manufacturing) and has been providing DRAM memory and storage memory to customers for many years. May 2001 (May and June 2001), Simon Chen Founded the data. The Taiwanese company makes a variety of hardware components, the main ones being DRAMs, USB flash drives, hard disks, solid state drives (SSDs), memory cards (memory cards) and mobile peripherals.
In recent years, e-data has entered new areas, such as robotics and electric propulsion systems, and continues to expand its reach. In addition to its core brand, the company has a subsidiary called XPG, which it uses to sell gaming equipment.

Some time ago, the wife of the founder and CEO of e-Data said in an interview that Asia and Europe, especially Russia, are areas where e-Data can experience great growth; Because the SSD and memory market is still in development; While the US market is more mature.
E-Data became more serious in the United States in 2002, opening two offices in Los Angeles and Miami. The two offices employed a total of 41 people in charge of sales and customer support: the Los Angeles City Office of North American Customer Affairs and the Miami Office of Latin American Customer Affairs. These offices are still standing. The whole process of research and development (R&D) is done in Taiwan; While the production process is divided between data factories in China and Taiwan.
2010; The beginning of a new era for e-data
Despite many successes, the E-Data management team continued to strive to make the company even more progressive. In 2010, e-data began the process of rebuilding its brand.

Over time, in order to generate more revenue and conduct more extensive research in the field of DRAM, there was a need to enter new markets; For this reason, e-data gradually began the process of generating storage memories.
EData makes a variety of products today; From DRAM, SSD and HDD to power bank and car charger and USB cable
Data’s SSDs are very high quality today. In the early days of SSD production, a number of analysts did not envision a bright future for the data business; But the company’s executives achieved their goal, and today the data business of E Data Company is very profitable.
Today, in addition to DRAM and internal flash memory and SSD, e-data also offers external storage memory to attract the attention of those interested in using this type of memory.

E-Data also has industrial products in the field of indoor lighting, commercial lighting, intelligent lighting, and outdoor lighting.
Serious presence in the gaming industry
XPG brand logo
For years, e-data provided the components needed for gaming systems; But over time, it felt necessary to offer some products in the form of separate families and exclusively for gamers. For this purpose, the company XPG (abbreviated XTREME PERFORMANCE GEAR) with the aim of providing powerful products to gamers and e-sports professionals and those interested in quality products. XPG says it is committed to producing products that help users achieve great power and great quality. For this reason, from the very beginning, he established a close relationship with the community of gamers and activists in the e-sports industry so that he could understand their real needs and produce products according to their wishes.
All XPG brand products undergo very rigorous data testing before entering the mass production stage, and to pass this stage, they must obtain the highest possible score. This makes the XPG brand products very standard and can be relied on to do different things. E-Data tries to combine XPG brand products with attractive design to attract more and more gamers.
XPG, the arm of e-data gaming, has a close relationship with gamers and professionals in the e-sports industry.
E-Data has designed a logo for the XPG brand that evokes the brand’s identity in the user’s mind. The circular design shows the shape of the logo and the shape of the stars; A glowing plasma sphere that continuously produces a lot of energy and power. At the same time, the ring-like pattern is similar to a saw blade, like a motor that can manage and harness the energy of a star. E-data says that this logo is a perfect metaphor for everything that XPG brand products can achieve.
XPG executives intend to become the main choice of gamers over time, whether casual gamers or professional gamers. XPG has participated in various e-sports competitions as a sponsor of various teams.

EData sells a variety of products such as SSDs, memory, external storage, desktops, laptops, mice, mice, keyboards and headsets in the XPG family.
Ambition in the electric vehicle industry
After a closer look at the market, e-data launched a new business unit called ADATA Powertrain. According to the company, there is clearly a good demand for electric vehicles in the South Asian market; For this reason, with its special business unit, it intends to produce propulsion for electric vehicles. E-Data has participated in various events with its business unit in order to introduce the Powertrain brand to those who are more and more interested in this field.

Powertrain brand E-Data is constantly trying to provide advanced solutions for electric vehicles. Propulsion technologies can increase productivity, reduce overall costs, and reduce the energy consumption of automotive power modules, says E-Data.
Despite all the problems, e-data still adheres to its main goal and intends to expand its activities even more over time. Today, various industries are experiencing a difficult situation; Because the corona virus suddenly entered the world and caused problems for various industries. E-Data, like other companies in the hardware industry, ran into serious problems; Because the birth of the corona virus shut down factories.
