Developed to address rugged storage applications, a new single-width storage XMC uses the latest mezzanine form factor and flash drive technologies, including the new CFast flash storage technology. The next generation 9289 XMCStor solid-state CompactFlash drives from Elma Electronic are based on a SATA interface and offer much higher data rates compared to drives with a parallel connection.

The XMCStor provides one front removable drive and one internal drive for maximum operational flexibility. Drives may be addressed as combined or separate volumes depending on their usage and application requirements. The front removable drive capability combined with hot swap allows fast and easy equipment upgrade and data transportability. With board level data transfer rates up to 130 Mbyte/s (write) and 140 Mbyte/s (read), the 9289 XMCStor is suitable for applications demanding high data rates. Current storage capacities equal 64 Gbyte across two drives, with higher capacities supported as new drives are introduced.

The XMCStor is capable of meeting a wide range of operating conditions. It is available in standard (0° to +55°C) through extended temperature (-40° to +85°C) versions and can withstand operating shock up to 40 Gs at 11 Msec. For added reliability, the unit can be conformally coated. Elma provides XMCStor software support and drivers for Linux, VxWorks and Windows with specific versions and host cards available upon request. Pricing starts at $800 in low quantities, configuration dependent.
