Rugged flash storage

M-Systems, in Sunnyvale, Calif., now offers a 2.5-inch, Ultra ATA disk with 16 gigabytes capacity in 9.5mm case height.

M-Systems' Fast Flash Disk (FFD) 2.5-inch Ultra ATA Flash Disk is a state-of-the-art solid-state disk, based on NAND flash technology, that provides the functionality of a hard disk with no moving parts. It is an ideal, rugged storage solution for mission-critical applications that must operate under harsh environmental conditions.

The disk delivers reliability and endurance thanks to M-Systems' TrueFFS technology, which applies dynamic wear-leveling and bad block management. Due to its unique design, it provides high-performance sustained read and write rates up to 100 megabytes/second and supports Ultra DMA 0-5, DMA 0-2 and PIO 0-4 transfer modes.

The disk is also fully compatible with the ATA-6 interface, and has the same mechanical dimensions and mounting holes of traditional mechanical disks. It is a true drop-in replacement for rotating 2.5-inch ATA disks with highest reliability.

M-Systems' FFD 2.5-inch Ultra ATA provides the full functionality of a high-capacity UATA hard disk drive, ideal for laptops, data recorders, blade servers, telecommunications and the military and aerospace industries.

This flash disk offers highest capacities in 2.5-inch form factor of up to 128 gigabytes, highest endurance in a flash disk with over five million write/erase cycles guaranteed, burst performance of 100 megabytes/second and sustained performance of 45 megabytes per second, compliancy with strict reliability standards such as NEBS level 3 and MIL-STD-810F.

It also offers security with features such as Fast Security Erase that meet sanitizing standards of the Department of Defense (DoD 5220.22-M), National Security Agency (NSA 130-2), Air Force (AFSSI 5020), Army (380-19) and Navy (Navso 5239). The unit is available now with six weeks lead time.

M-Systems' family of FFDs has been providing rugged, mass storage solutions to an expansive range of industries since 1997. In air force, navy and army installations, it has been field-tested inside data recorders, moving maps, sonar, radar, fire control systems, black boxes, data acquisition systems, C4ISR, telemetry systems, rugged laptops, tablet PCs and servers.
