January 5, 2005
BitMicro Networks Tuesday unveiled what it claimed is the world's first Ultra320 SCSI solid-state flash disk drive.
The 80-pin version of the E-Disk 3S320 features a Single Connector Attachment (SCA-2) interface, which replaces the regular 68-pin data connector, 4-pin power connector, and various configuration jumpers on a hard disk. SCA-2 facilitates hot swapping and simplifies maintenance of direct attached storage (DAS). That in turn makes the drive well suited for military applications in particular, BitMicro said. The E-Disk Ultra320 SCSI is operating system-independent and features up to 42-microsecond access time and a maximum IOPS of 12,500. Sustained R/W rate is 68 megabytes per second (max) and burst R/W rate is 320 Mbytes per second (max). Available in a 3.5-inch form factor, maximum capacity is 155 gigabytes. Ultra320 is a faster and more reliable version of SCSI, offering packetized SCSI as a more efficient method of transferring commands, messages, status, and data between SCSI devices, BitMicro said. OEM pricing ranges from $0.50 to $1.50 per Mbyte, depending on the options, capacity and quantity.
