14.3 GByte, Highest Capacity 3.5" SCSI Flash Drive Now Shipping

PHOENIX, AZ. June 11, 2001 - The highest capacity 3.5" SCSI Flash Drive is now available from Adtron Corporation. This manufacturer of high reliability data storage solutions adds two new capacities, 12.8 GBytes and 14.3 GBytes, to its S35PC line of SCSI Flash drives. Designed for harsh environment applications requiring reliability, durability, long life, and high capacity, the Adtron S35PC storage system is a form-fit-function drop-in solid state replacement for SCSI 3.5" disk and DAT drives. Adtron's SCSI command set delivers consistent system operation and can be factory configured to a specified geometry and command set to meet system specific operating parameters.

Alan Fitzgerald, President of Adtron stated: "Adtron can now meet higher capacity rugged storage requirements as found in pipeline inspection systems, airborne surveillance, shipboard fire control systems, and mobile mapping systems. Over the past year Adtron shipped 9.6 GByte Flash drives to these applications; this new capacity enables additional capabilities."

The S35PC product line offers capacities of 5.1 GBytes, 9.6 GBytes, 12.8 GBytes and 14.3 GBytes in commercial (0 to 60 °C) and enhanced (-25 to +75 °C) temperature ranges for applications that must operate in high shock and vibration environments. Additional characteristics include easy firmware upgrade for the addition of new features, 0 dB sonar signature for submarine systems, low power and 5 VDC-only operation for mobile applications.

The 14.3 GByte capacity, S35PC-14GC, is priced at $42,000 USD per unit in quantities of 25. Lead time is stock to eight weeks ARO.
