BiTMICRO Networks Inc. has introduced its E-Disk PMC solid state storage plug-in module at the Military and Aerospace Electronics East 2004.

The company utilized the Solid-State Flash-based E-Disk technology, which is a nonvolatile IDE/ATA storage solution, in its single-wide PCI Mezzanine Card (PMC) form factor. The E-Disk PMC is engineered for use as a boot and/or storage device for carrier boards such as CompactPCI, VME and MultiBus, and almost any other type of SBC and blade with a PMC slot.

According to the company, the mezzanine card delivers cost effective mass storage, and eliminates cables and the need to use SCSI-based storage solutions for applications requiring moderate storage capacities.

"The E-Disk 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," said Rudy Bruce, president of BiTMICRO, a company specializing in intelligent flash IDE/ATA, SCSI, USB, VME, CompactPCI, FireWire, Ethernet, and Fiber Channel solid state storage solutions.

The 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 nonvolatile data storage, and comes in rugged industrial temperature, conformally coated and soon to be available conduction cooled versions.

With I/O rates of up to 18,000 IOPS, the device also features burst read/write rates of up to 66MBps, sustained random read/write rates of up to 28MBps, and capacities of up to 10GB.

"This affordably priced, high-speed, solid-state storage module sets a new standard for low-cost, ruggedized PMC-based storage," adds Bruce. "This latest addition to the E-Disk 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."
