Microsemi offers solid state storage device for military systems

Microsemi is offering a SATA storage system for secure embedded defence system applications.

Packaged in a 32x28mm 522 PBGA (plastic ball grid array), the MSM37 and MSM75 devices provide up to 75Gbyte of NAND flash solid state storage.

They can be used as alternatives to traditional 2.5 inch storage devices, which are used in military systems.

Security features include AES-128 encryption, self-destruct capability and whole-module erase with “push-button” trigger option, which are necessary for mission-critical defence and aerospace applications.

“Offering a complete solid state storage system in a compact module allows designers to add more features to their systems, while supporting key security features that are increasingly important to our defense and aerospace customers,” said Jack Bogdanski, director of marketing for Microsemi.

The BGA package, available in 37 and 75 GB densities, combines a SATA flash controller with the latest in small geometry single line cell (SLC) NAND flash.

The device includes a single supply with extended hold-up time without super caps or batteries.

Microsemi’s production facility is a DOD Trusted Source and DMEA accredited for assembly and test.

Its quality and inspection system requirements are certified to MIL-PRF-38534 Class H and K, MIL-PRF-38535 Class B, ISO 9001:2008 and AS9100.
