BiTMICRO Launches E-Disk PMC Flash Module at Military & Aerospace Show

5/20/2004 - BiTMICRO Networks(r), a pioneer in intelligent flash IDE/ATA, SCSI, USB, VME, CompactPCI, FireWire, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel solid state storage solutions, introduced the E-Disk(r) PMC solid state storage plug-in module at the Military & Aerospace Electronics East 2004 in booth 309. Co-located with Homeland Security Solutions Conference & Exhibition, Military & Aerospace Electronics East 2004 is currently being held at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland from May 18 to 19, 2004.

BiTMICRO(r) Networks utilizes proven Solid-State Flash-based E-Disk(r) technology, a non-volatile IDE/ATA storage solution, in an industry-standard single-wide PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) form factor. The E-Disk(r) PMC is intended for use as a boot and/or storage device for carrier boards such as CompactPCI, VME and MultiBus, and almost any other type of single board computer (SBC) and blade with a PMC slot. The solid-state storage mezzanine card delivers cost effective mass storage, eliminates cables and the need to use SCSI-based storage solutions for applications requiring moderate storage capacities.

The E-Disk(r) PMC flash-based solid-state solution comes with device driver support for Linux and VxWorks. It does not need hard disk drive battery back up or UPS for non-volatile data storage. E-Disk(r) PMC also comes in rugged industrial temperature, conformally coated and soon to be available conduction cooled versions. They boast I/O rates of up to 18,000 IOPS, burst read/write rates of up to 66 MB/sec, sustained random read/write rates of up to 28 MB/sec, and capacities of up to 10 GB.

"The E-Disk(r) PMC brings industry standard IDE / ATA ruggedized commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) storage to a multitude of embedded computing applications deployed in the aviation, defense, medical and industrial environments," states Rudy Bruce, President of BiTMICRO(r) Networks.

"This affordably priced, high-speed, solid state storage module sets a new standard for low-cost, ruggedized PMC-based storage. This latest addition to the E-Disk(r) family of solid state disks underscores BiTMICRO's commitment to providing the military, industrial and enterprise sectors with the widest array of high performance, flash-based solid state solutions in various configurations and specifications," adds Bruce.
