industrial temperature range, increased shock and vibration tolerance,
and ATA-7 Security Erase features extend drive’s applicability to rugged
NEWARK, CA., August 11, 2009—SMART
Modular Technologies (WWH), Inc. (“SMART” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:
a leading independent
manufacturer of memory modules, solid-state drives, embedded computing
subsystems, and TFT-LCD display products, today announced a new
ruggedized version of its Xcel-10 solid-state drive (SSD).
SMART’s new rugged Xcel-10
SSD is optimized for defense and industrial applications where high
shock, vibration, and temperature tolerances are as important as high
performance and reliability. Featuring a SATA 3Gb/s interface, the new
Xcel-10 is equipped with a higher operating temperature range of -40°C
to 85°C, and improved environmental specifications of 50g operating
shock and 16.4g operating vibration. The Xcel-10 product line also
includes the ATA-7 Security Erase feature for applications where data
elimination is important. Both Normal and Enhanced Security Erase modes
are provided to eliminate all user data on the drive when activated.
supports both high sequential performance (measured in MB/s) and random
I/O performance (measured in IOPS) in a ruggedized package, this new
product is ideally suited for a wide range of applications, including
flight data recording and rugged laptops,” explained Mark Dupaul,
SMART's Senior Product Marketing Manager. “The Xcel-10 now meets the
needs of land, sea, and air-based applications that require greater
environmental durability and increased data security."
Offered in a 2.5" form
factor, the rugged Xcel-10 SSDs are available in 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB
capacities, and they are validated to MIL-STD-810F. The new Xcel-10
drives are available now.
SMART will showcase its
entire portfolio of storage products at booth #403 at the Flash Memory
Summit to be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara,
CA, from August 11-13, 2009.
