Elma Electronic can now supply the Secure PMCDisk for securely erasing and write-protecting sensitive data in harsh environments such as those often found in military and defence applications.

The high-capacity mass data storage mezzanine supports 10 major defence agency secure erasure procedures via a front-panel push button with an LED indicator to confirm data erasure.

It also enables write protection via a front-panel toggle switch.

Defence agency standards supported by the Secure PMCDisk include: fast clear/initialise; clear; DoD NISPOM 5220.22-M and 5220.22-M-Sup 1; NSA/CSS Manuals 130-2 and 9-12; AR 380-19; NAVSO P-5239-26; AFSSI-5020; and IRIG 106-07.

The RoHS-compliant Secure PMCDisk ships complete with a 2.5in solid-state flash drive.

Current capacities support up to 128GB and software drivers are available for Vxworks, Linux and Windows.

It can be used on any board with an IEEE1386.1-compliant PMC site such as CompactPCI, VMEbus, OpenVPX, VXS and ATCA, replacing external hard drives or disk modules that require additional backplane slots or external connections.

The storage module supports Smart (self-monitoring analysis and reporting technology), which detects remaining useful drive life in order to avoid system failures that lead to catastrophic shutdowns, a key factor for applications requiring data safety.

In addition, the single-level cell (SLC) 2.5in Sata solid-state storage device further increases data reliability and retention, according to Elma Electronic.

Conformal coating is available, applied in accordance with MIL-I-46058C, Type UR.

Extended operating temperature range can be as high as -40C to +85C, based on user requirements.

The ruggedised mezzanine withstands shock to 1,500G at 0.5ms half-sine and vibration to 16.4G rms (10Hz to 2,000Hz random).

The mezzanine supports additional remote secure erase and write-protection options.
