BiTMICRO Packages Solid State Storage in Transportable Form Factor

12/2/2003 - BiTMICRO® Networks, a pioneer in intelligent flash ATA / IDE, SCSI, USB, VME, Compact PCI, Firewire, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel non-volatile flash disk drive solid state storage solutions, announced a new member of the rugged family of its flash solid-state storage solutions at Military & Aerospace Electronics COTScon West 2003.

BiTMICRO Networks continues to provide innovative solutions in the field of portable and highly reliable solid-state storage solutions with the introduction of E-Disk® Transit. A lot of interest is being generated by the military as well as the industrial market in the fields of high-speed data acquisition and recording such as those in airborne applications, transportation and even off-premises telecommunications equipment where harsh environments prevail.

Ideal for applications requiring rapid, frequent swaps, BiTMICRO's High Cycle (HC) receivers and drive modules bring frequent insertion & removal capabilities to your system with the patented SCSI Disconnect technology, providing true "hot swap" removal for your secure and rugged needs. In-line patented SCSI Disconnect modules provide SCSI bus isolation in shared devices and host environments where devices can be physically or logically removed from the bus while guaranteeing uninterrupted operation of the remaining connected devices.

For mission critical security requirements, BiTMICRO's patented secureErase® software utility kicks into action upon receipt of a SCSI erase command from the host or while in transport--upon user intervention with a press of a button on the carrier in the module. Moreover, its U.S. Government compliant data security feature guarantees that device sanitization of your sensitive data is performed quickly beyond retrieval. When complemented by patented PowerGuard®, ungraceful power shutdowns or loss will not prevent the erase procedure from completing or automatically reactivating to complete the erase process. The user may even choose to delay the securErase® process by up to a maximum of 6 hours of losing power to the disk during transport.

"Industrial and military applications have usually been restricted to employing bulky and heavy payloads for the physical movement and transport of highly sensitive data. E-Disk® Transit takes the lead in providing a much more convenient data loading and reloading process for our customers' data transport requirements," comments Rudy Bruce, President of BiTMICRO Networks Inc. "Not only does E-Disk® Transit ensure confidentiality of your data, but BiTMICRO has also gone the extra mile with its unique and rugged drive carrier packaging that provides enhanced post-mission protection for your extremely valuable data," adds Bruce.

E-Disk® Transit products come in SCSI Narrow, SCSI Wide and Fibre Channel interfaces using proven solid-state Flash-based E-Disk® technology, in a rugged industry standard 5.25-inch half-height or low profile module. The removable drive modules also come with an optional write protect switch. E-Disk® Transit does not require device drivers for installation and operation, with capacities ranging from 512MB to 122.9GB on the half-height modules and 512MB to 53.4GB on the low profile series.

The E-Disk® Transit is being showcased at the Military & Aerospace Electronics COTScon West 2003 Conference, San Diego Concourse, Booth 307, San Diego, California, from December 2 to 3, 2003.

E-Disk® Transit OEM pricing starts at under $2K a unit. For E-Disk® Transit technology information, pricing and availability, call +1 510-74E-DISK / +1 510-743-3475, e-mail or visit
