Conduction Cooled Secure Storage PMC – ccPMC430

A conduction cooled Storage PMC with SecureErase and WriteProtect functions. The ccPMC430 provides advanced levels of data security for sensitive applications in military and commercial environments. Write protection prevents unwanted erasure, overwrite, or modification of sensitive data and operating system information.

The Secure-Erase mode enables rapid and thorough destruction of that data when required. The ccPMC430 provides two methods of data protection: Secure-Erase, with two levels of data purging; and Write-Protect, preventing data from being overwritten or modified. It couples a PCI/ATA core with secure-erase and write-protect logic implemented via a FPGA. The ccPMC430 is a fully integrated and tested storage solution capable of operating in environments where extended shock and vibration conditions exist. The media and the controller have been pre-qualified with major operating systems.

Means of securing media from unauthorized write or erasure of data where its most needed. Hardware initiated write protection and secure erasure helps prevent unintended intervention, since no OS is required for implementation. Cost effective mass storage, eliminating cables and the need to use SCSI based storage solutions for applications requiring moderate storage capacities. Solves rugged embedded mass storage requirements.

CompactFlash Media:
Solid state storage capacity with rugged, enhanced duty CompactFlash drives. Up to 8 GB CF-I (16 GB CF-II). The CompactFlash II minimally exceeds the component height limit in the IEEE 1386.1 specification by 1.3 mm including retaining bracket. This is not typically an issue for the vast majority of boards. (Consult factory as capacities regularly increase). Extended operating temperature (-40°C to +85°C). With bootable device drivers for Linux and VxWorks, the ccPMC430 is an ideal embedded solution for secure storage requirements.


Hardware initiated Secure-Erase offers two erasure levels: destructive or non-destructive
Hardware initiated Write-Protect feature is enabled via an external signal or switch
Provision for on-board BIOS for system boot directly from storage media
Support for multiple storage vendors enables selection for environmental performance
Convection or conduction cooled; uses industrial temperature range components (-40°C to +85°C operating); conformal coating available where required
Complete solution includes storage, PMC and software. Each assembled unit is configured and undergoes functional testing to confirm reliable operation of the entire unit before shipment
