TARGA builds flash disk for rugged military applications

Electronics designers integrating systems for use aboard aircraft, combat vehicles, spacecraft, surface warships, and submarines may find the solutions they need for rugged, reliable disk memory in the new 6U VME SCSI Flash Disk from Targa Electronics Systems of San Ramon, Calif.

Electronics designers integrating systems for use aboard aircraft, combat vehicles, spacecraft, surface warships, and submarines may find the solutions they need for rugged, reliable disk memory in the new 6U VME SCSI Flash Disk from Targa Electronics Systems of San Ramon, Calif.

Targa`s VME-SCSI in one 6U VME slot can provide as much as 402 megabytes of memory as a bootable SCSI-2-compliant disk drive with no additional software drivers. The board comes in a convection-cooled version able to operate in temperatures between -40 and 85 degrees Celsius, and in an IEEE 1101.2 conduction-cooled version able to operate in temperatures between -40 and 74 C.

The SCSI flash device, designed to replace hard disk drives in rugged and other environmentally demanding applications, comes as a single drive of 402 megabytes, or as a dual drive of 140 megabytes each drive. - J.K.
