BiTMICRO Unveils Military-Grade E-Disk VME Ultra320 SCSI Wide Flash Disk

12/2/2004 - BiTMICRO(r) Networks, a pioneer in intelligent IDE/ATA, SCSI, USB, VME, PMC, CompactPCI, FireWire, Ethernet and Fibre Channel flash solid state storage solutions, announced a new line of E-Disk(r) VME SCSI Wide flash solid state drive plug-in modules featuring the E-Disk(r) 3S320 - the world's first Ultra320 SCSI-based flash solid state disk.

BiTMICRO's E-Disk(r) VME U320 SCSI Wide flash disk drives are now available in both conduction- and convection-cooled versions. Designed as a 6U double slot plug-in module, the current convection-cooled E-Disk(r) VME module can hold storage capacities ranging from 1024MB to 53.2GB.

On the other hand, the conduction-cooled E-Disk(r) VME U320 SCSI plug-in flash disk module comes in a single disk configuration that can occupy up to three slots for a maximum capacity of 155.36GB.

The heart and soul of the E-Disk(r) VME U320 SCSI Wide Series is the 3S320 flash disk. This OS-independent, pure solid state/non-volatile E-Disk SSD features up to 42 Ásec access time and a maximum I/O of 12,500/sec. Sustained R/W rate is 68 MB/sec (max) and burst R/W rate is 320 MB/sec (max). It can handle operating shock of up to 1500 Gs and extreme temperatures from -40 to +85░C. Product design targets an MTBF of 1 million hours.

The E-Disk(r) VME U320 SCSI Wide Series of plug-in flash disk drive modules are completely bootable, do not require any special device drivers, and are fully-compliant with the remanence security requirements of the U.S. Department of Defense, Navy, Army and Air Force with its patented securErase(r) and PowerGuard(r) technologies.

"Through the years, the VME bus has maintained its stature as the embedded computing architecture of choice for defense, aerospace and industrial automation applications," says Rudy Bruce, President of BiTMICRO Networks. "Our E-Disk VME SCSI solution ramps up VME technology to the next level by delivering ultra-fast, enterprise-level storage transfer speeds in a ruggedized form factor," Bruce adds.
