BiTMICRO Introduces IDE-based Non-Volatile Solid State Ace-Disk Module

6/30/2004 - BiTMICRO(r) Networks, a pioneer in intelligent flash IDE/ATA, SCSI, USB, VME, PMC, CompactPCI, Firewire, Ethernet, and Fibre Channel solid state storage solutions, introduced the Ace-Disk(tm) Module Series, a low-cost plug-in module that offers non-volatile, solid state storage solution in an industry standard IDE interface.

Fully compatible with the standard ATA interface and PIO mode 0-2, the Ace-Disk(tm) Module Series features all the advantages of solid-state disk, including low latency delay, fast seek times and higher shock tolerance than magnetic hard disk drive (HDD). This product's modular form factor makes it highly suitable for low-cost embedded storage applications in industrial equipment such as POS devices, vending machines, GPS receivers and security systems.

The Ace-Disk(tm) Module Series supports standard 40-pin or 44-pin IDE connectors in both vertical and horizontal orientations. It is completely bootable and requires no device drivers for installation and operation. The solid-state flash disk module boasts I/O rates of up to 1,600 IOPS, sustained random rates of 4.3 MB/sec on reads and 1.5 MB/sec on writes, with available capacities ranging from 16 MB to 512 MB. It has much better shock tolerance than HDDs (1,000 G operating and non-operating), making it well suited for industrial embedded and mobile applications.

"This latest product offering forms part of our bid to strengthen BiTMICRO's presence in the low-cost segment of the solid-state storage market," states Rudy Bruce, President of BiTMICRO(r) Networks. "Low cost does not necessarily translate to low-end features, since the Ace-Disk(tm) Module Series still carries the BiTMICRO name which is synonymous to performance, reliability and innovation," Bruce adds.
