Offers up to 128GB of storageM-Systems has announced a serial ATA (SATA) solid-state flash drive. Offering up to 128GB of storage, its FFD 2.5-inch SATA flash drive is the highest capacity solid-state SATA offering available on the market.

Running the company's patented TrueFFS flash management software to ensure the highest levels of endurance, the FFD 2.5-inch SATA offers reliable operation through more than 5 million write/erase cycles. In terms of performance, it provides an interface speed of 1.5Gbps and a sustained read/write performance rate of 44Mbps.

The product complies with the stringent reliability requirements offset for mission critical applications such as NEBS level 3 for the telecommunication industry and the MIL-STD 810F standard for military and aerospace. With no moving parts, flash-based storage devices are able to operate under the harshest conditions, unlike magnetic hard disk drives. Other advantages include the use of thinner and longer cables and a hot-swap functionality. These features make M-Systems' FFD 2.5-inch SATA ideal for the blade servers, telecommunication systems and aerospace industries as well as military applications.

Supporting stringent security standards required by military and other mission-critical applications, the FFD 2.5-inch SATA is equipped with a fast security erase feature and complies with the sanitizing standards of the USA Department of Defense, National Security Agency, Navy, Air Force (FSSI) and IREC (IRIG).
