High-Security, Self-Encrypting Solid State Drives Store a Quarter Terabyte
Page 1 of 1
A next-generation family of self-encrypting solid state drives (SSDs) is targeted for applications requiring superior data security, outstanding reliability, ruggedization, large storage capacity and high sustained data throughput rates. The first new product in the TRRUST-Stor Series 200 family from Microsemi is a 256 Gbyte 2.5” SATA SSD that operates at sustained rates of 200 Mbytes/s using reliable, long-life SLC NAND flash. The company has secured multiple design wins for its new Series 200 SSD and initial shipments to customers are underway.
TRRUST-Stor Series 200 SSDs are ideal for high-bandwidth land-, air- and ship-based video streaming and surveillance applications where recording every second of data is important. The high-capacity Series 200 also provides ample storage for imaging applications such as those used in UAVs and vetronics.
The TRRUST-Stor Series 200 is powered by Microsemi’s second generation Armor processor. A full hardware-based erase takes less than eight seconds. The Series 200 SSDs also offer the ability to load encryption keys. Customers can input their own AES-256 keys, purge them and re-load as needed. Microsemi’s TRRUST-Purge technology destroys keys in less than 30 milliseconds when activated.
The self-encrypting drive (SED) features a built-in compact in-line encryptor with hardware-implemented AES 256 encryption using the XTS block cipher mode. The drives are manufactured in a trusted U.S. facility with full BOM and manufacturing control. They are also developed to SD’s ruggedized specifications that allow the disk drive to withstand up to 3000G shock and 30 Grms of vibration.
