Warminster, PA, United States, 2008/07/15 - ACT/Technico, a leading supplier of embedded products and systems solutions built with CompactPCI, VMEbus and other open architecture platforms, introduces the Flash PMCStor, a low-power conduction-cooled solid state flash memory PMC module.
ACT/Technico, a leading supplier of embedded products and systems solutions built with CompactPCI, VMEbus and other open architecture platforms, introduces the Flash PMCStor, a low-power conduction-cooled solid state flash memory PMC module with up to 128 GB of NAND Flash memory. Offered in convection- and conduction-cooled configurations, the module is suitable for mass storage requirements in rugged environments found in defense and aerospace applications.
The Flash PMCStor uses the latest generation USB flash disk controller; the memory is organized as an array of four flash banks with throughputs of 15 MB/sec per array when seen as individual USB drives, or up to 30 MB/sec as a single drive in RAID mode. Additional features include wear leveling, write protect and error detection and bad block correction. Three high-speed USB ports, one type ‘A’ on the front panel and two ports via the rear PN4 I/O connector, allow for additional memory access options.
The new Flash PMCStor consumes less than 5 Watts of power in operating mode and will fit single board computers and carrier boards for CompactPCI, VME, VXS and VPX, or any board with a standard PMC site. The Flash PMCStor supports PCI bus clock frequencies up to 66 MHz in non-Monarch mode at 32 or 64 bits wide.
Current operating systems supported include VxWorks, Linux and Windows. The board is compatible with EMC 89/336/ECC, EN55022 CIE and EN50082-2 as well as USB version 2.0. It also complies with USB Mass Storage Class specification version 1.0 as well as USB Revision 1.0 OHCI and EHCI.
The Flash PMCStor will be available in Q3 2008. Pricing information and additional details are available through ACT/Technico.
