PMC ShuttleStor storage solution

ACT/Technico, a supplier of embedded products and systems solutions built with CompactPCI, VMEbus, and other open architecture platforms, introduced a PMC storage solution that enables the removal of data without requiring removal of the host board.

The new PMC ShuttleStor is a two-part mezzanine consisting of a shuttle and a receiving canister. The canister mounts to the host board, allowing for insertion and removal of the storage shuttle through the host front panel. The product's design is compatible with both rotating and solid state ATA drives in standard form factors of 7mm and 9.5mm.

According to ACT/Technico, the product is useful for OS upgrades and vehicle or system declassification applications. The existing drive is simply removed and the upgraded module is plugged in.

The hot-swappable PMC ShuttleStor is said to offer the industry's shortest mean time to repair, providing high system availability and a smaller field replaceable unit. It complies with the standard IEEE 1386.1 PMC mezzanine form factor and features on-board parallel-to-serial ATA conversion as well as on-board hot plug power conditioning. SATA control logic supports the PMC ShuttleStor's hot swap capability. The new PMC storage solution provides device driver support in addition to activity and hot swap indicators on the front panel.

ACT/Technico offers device driver qualified single board computer (SBC) host and ShuttleStor solutions using VME or CPCI based SBCs.
