APRO, Taiwan’s leading manufacturer of industrial-grade NAND Flash storage devices, has extended its BON Series Solid State Drives (SSDs) with the addition of a range of Parallel ATA (PATA) SSDs. The new BON Series PATA SSDs utilise SLC (single level cell) NAND Flash technology and are available in a 2.5 inch form factor, rugged, metal-encased package in data capacities of 8, 16, 32, 64 and 128 GBytes.
All of the drives support the Fast Erase of media data that can either be hardware triggered or by software defined by ATA vendor code. Secure Erase is also available as a custom option.
The new BON Series PATA SSDs support both PIO-4 and UDMA-6 transfer modes delivering a maximum sequential read performance of 105 MBytes/sec with an average access time of 0.2 ms and a maximum sequential write performance of 100 MBytes/sec. The drives also provide compatibility with IDE and ATA/ATAPI-7 legacy specifications.
Ruggedised for use in harsh environments and ideally suited to embedded industrial, military and aerospace applications, the BON Series PATA drives support an extended operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C, vibration, shock and humidity compliance to MIL-STD-810F environmental specifications and are capable of operating up to an altitude of 70,000 feet. In addition, they provide a mean time between failure (MTBF) in excess of 3 million hours, endurance performance greater than 2 million cycles with data retention of 10 years or more. The drives measure 69.9mm by 99.7mm by 9.5mm and weigh just 115g.
