A high-speed controller and storage module supports up to eight SATA III ports and over 2 terabytes of onboard capacity in a single 3U VPX slot. The new Model 5335/6 from Elma Electronic is suitable for applications demanding exceptional characteristics in both data capacity and read/write performance.

The Model 5335/6 is seen as a PCIe Gen2 x8 connection to the host as it provides the link to a storage array where capacities exceed 8 Tbyte across four slots and where data bandwidth exceeds 1 Gbyte/s.

With RAID 0/1/5/10 support, the storage array system can be configured to maximize bandwidth or provide data redundancy for critical applications. The onboard controller provides an additional six SATA III backplane ports for building a high-performance, high-capacity storage array using Elma’s 553x family of dual-drive storage carriers across four total slots.

The rugged modules perform reliably in the harsh conditions found in many defense and industrial applications, ranging from ground, ship and airborne systems to signal intelligence, engine and automation control and mission-critical information systems.

Using solid state drives, the convection-cooled versions operate from -40° to +85°C and the conduction-cooled versions operate from -40° to +75°C. Consult Elma for higher temperature requirements. Operating shock of all boards is 40 Gs at 11 ms, half-sine wave; vibration is 2 Gs from 15 Hz to 2,000 Hz. Pricing for the units typically starts at $1,600 depending on the version and drive choice.
