Phoenix International introduces solid-state VME mass storage module

Phoenix International Systems in Orange, Calif., released its VS1-250-SSD serial attached SCSI (SAS)/serial ATA (SATA)-based solid-state disk VME military data storage plug-in blade. The VS1-250-SSD military VME system delivers high-capacity, high-performance data storage for military, aerospace, and industrial applications requiring rugged, secure, and durable military hard drive mass data storage. The 6U, single-slot military VME bus module houses one or two each 2.5-inch SAS or SATA SSDs with as much as 256 gigabytes per device and can be interfaced through its front-panel connector or its P2 connector. The high-speed module will sustain read/write data rates of 120 megabits per second with an access time of .5 milliseconds. The VS1-250SSD has an operating temperature range from -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and functions at an altitude greater than 80,000 feet. The VS1-250-SSD also complies with current Defense Department security standards providing multiple levels of secure erase techniques. As a drop-in replacement for a traditional hard disk drive, the Phoenix device offers lower power consumption and eliminates seek time, latency, and other electro-mechanical delays commonly associated with conventional rotating media.
