E-Disk® Altima™ Solid State Drives

 

Overview

– Proven Ruggedness, Reliability and Security

The E-Disk Altima line of SSDs reflect the core focus of the company – designing the most rugged and highest performing SSDs with a wide-range of data protection features.For ruggedness, we designed these SSDs to withstand extreme levels of temperature, shock, vibration, and altitude.

And undergoing hours of rigorous environmental testing to ensure maximum performance in mission-critical situations, E-Disk Altima SSD reliability has been proven through countless military missions and industrial projects.

Yet E-Disk Altima drives are not only physically robust but they protect user data with the highest level of security and meet the stringent requirements demanded by our military and industrial customers.

BiTMICRO-patented, military-class data security technologies keep your data completely safe. Because unlike hard drives, E-Disk Altima SSDs use our advanced SecurErase technology to sanitize the drive completely, rendering data irretrievable.

The SecurErase technology can be activated upon demand or upon a user selectable event and without a power source.  In the Power Loss Erase configuration, we designed the drive to perform erasure and sanitization of stored data upon sensing the loss of power to the SSD.

In the Mobile Erase configuration, triggering the SecurErase technology can be delayed for an extended amount of time after disconnecting its external power source. This allows the drive to be carried from any location for an extended period yet can be erased without external power during transport upon demand.

For data protection, we offer E-Disk Altima drive configurations that include our patented PowerGuard technology which protects data in the event of power loss or degradation. When power is lost or unreliable, the PowerGuard feature flushes data from the volatile cache to the non-volatile flash to make sure data is safe while maintaining power within the super capacitors.

E-Disk Altima SSDs are available in standard 2.5” and 3.5” form factors, making them ideal replacements for unreliable hard drives in systems and enclosures where data is mission-critical and cannot afford to be lost. These rugged SSDs effectively respond to the demands of applications in extreme environments found in ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance), aviation, aerospace, and industrial applications.
E-Disk Altima SSDs do not need non-standard device drivers for installation and operation. With patented wear leveling and proprietary BCH error-correction code technologies, the drives have unbeatable reliability and endurance. E-Disk Altima drives are hot pluggable in some interfaces, helping support system availability and allowing a seamless, uninterrupted performance around the clock.


Features

PowerGuard® Technology

PowerGuard is the BiTMICRO-patented solution for data protection during power loss or degradation. Low Voltage Detection identifies when voltage drops below a safe threshold and immediately begins moving data from the volatile SDRAM cache to the non-volatile flash memory. Integrated super capacitors provide power to make sure that all data saves if a full power loss occurs.

Superior Ruggedness

Designed to withstand extreme environments, the E-Disk Altima series is designed and tested to operate in the following scenarios:

  • Operating Temperature (Commercial): 0 to 70 °C
  • Operating Temperature (Industrial): –40 to 85 °C
  • Shock: 1,500 G
  • Vibration: 16.4 Grms
  • Altitude: –1,200 to 120,000 ft.
  • Humidity: 5 to 95% (non-condensing)

SecurErase® Technology

SecurErase technology sanitizes an entire drive that complies with military sanitization standards or through simple erasure. This feature is supported on the BiTMICRO D-Disk Altima SATA, PATA, Fibre Channel, SCSI U320, and SCSI Narrow drives. Sanitization standards supported include:

  • NISPOM DoD 5220.22-M
  • NSA 130-2
  • Air Force AFSSI 5020
  • Army 380-19
  • IRIG-106
  • NISPOMSUP
  • AFSSI 5020/2003
  • AFSSI 5020/2003 CLR
  • NSA 9-12

Power Loss Erase

Power Loss Erase allows for a complete sanitization that complies with both military and industrial standards. It allows a drive to automatically run SecurErase sanitization on all data when removed from an external power source, protecting sensitive data from becoming compromised.

Mobile Erase

Mobile Erasure allows a drive to be removed from an external power with the option to activate the SecurErase feature at a later point. The drive can be transported for an extended period while allowing a complete sanitization that complies with military and industrial standards.
