SMART High Reliability Solutions has rolled out its new solid-state drive, HRS-M4P SSD. It is a security-rich, ruggedized and high-performance SSD which offers data protection or elimination, environmental and reliability features. Read this post to learn these features of SMART HRS-M4P SSD.
SMART HRS-M4P Solid-state Drive
SMART High Reliability Solutions (or SMART HRS, for short), is a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc. And it is a manufacturer of current and next-generation solid-state storage solutions, specializing in providing ruggedized, high-capacity and high-performance solid-state drives (SSDs) for industrial, defense and aerospace markets.
On December 18, this company announced its HRS-M4P 2.5” SATA SSD. Let’s see some features of this SSD.
The M4P SSD can be available in volume production quantities and it is suitable for customers who require ultimate performance as well as data security at altitudes of up to 80,000 feet. To sum up, this SMART HRS SSD is fairly secure, ruggedized, and high-performance and loaded with data protection or data elimination, environmental and reliability features.
Besides, this SSD meets mil-erase sequence standards. Since it is a multi-level technology solution, for users who demand defense and aerospace applications, the HRS-M4P solid-state drive is a durable and economical choice.
Taking example by its successful predecessor, the HRS-M4, the MLC based HRS-M4P offers up to 2TB storage capacity. Its read/write performance can respectively reach up to 500 MB/s and 260 MB/s.
What’s more, SMART HRS-M4P SSD can work properly in an industrial temperature that is from -40 to +85 degrees Celsius. And it has a highly-ruggedized enclosure design, which can help protect against harsh elements, and make the SSD withstand vibration and shock up to 1500g.
If applications demands, design options include staking, leaded process, conformal coating, specialty firmware, and extended burn-in.
As to security, it adopts AES 256-bit encryption, supports write protection and offers an external HW erase trigger. The M4P SSD also features MIL erase and adheres to NSS-9-12, DoD NISPOM and other specific NSA, armed forces security and encryption criteria.
SMART HRS-M4P solid-state drive has an important feature that is it can prevent from SEUs, single event upsets that may be a problem in high-altitude operations.
Simply speaking, an SEU refers to a change of state in a device that is caused by one single ionizing particle striking a sensitive node in a microelectronic device. Commonly, this is called a bit-flip that can give rise to an error in device operation or output.
According to Mike Guzzo, General Manager of SMART HRS, radiation in high-altitude applications may change bits in memory. For defense customers who require airborne data storage, they can’t live with these SEUs. Seriously, data may get lost. They must mitigate SEUs and protect data during mission-critical applications.
Now, nearly all information of SMART HRS-M4P SSD is told to you. You can also visit the product comparison chart on the SMART website to review and compare the HRS-M4P product’s specifications, feature sets, capabilities, and other attributes.
