FRED Black Series SSD

Flexible Ruggedized External Drive, FRED is part of Memkor’s Black Series SATA, PCIe and USB Solid State Drives. FRED provides an easy to deploy, highly rugged and high-performance non-volatile storage module in capacities up to 2TB and 4TB in short and long versions, and performance for up to 300MB/s and 500MB/s for USB and SATA interfaces. FRED optionally includes Write Protect, military grade Secure Erase and is compliant with cryptographic module requirements.

Memkor BLACK Series SSDs are designed for applications that require extreme level of ruggedization. Leveraging Memkor Orange and Blue Series SSD capabilities, and combining with the innovative mechanical design, Memkor Black Series SSDs provide exceptional resilience to the most challenging shock and vibration levels well beyond those required by the most stringent cases of the MIL-STD-810F/G standard. With the capacity ranging from 32GB to 1024GB using either MLC NAND or highest quality SLC NAND, as well as features such Data Elimination, the Black Series considerably expands deployment flexibility of the Memkor family of SSDs.

All newest generation Memkor BLACK Series FRED models support either TCG Opal or ATA command based encryption management with FIPS 197 validated encryption engine. Selected 256-1024GB models are FIPS 140-2 Level 2 validated. Contact Memkor for more details.

All Memkor BLACK Series production units are fully tested beyond extended temperature range in addition to 12-48 hours room temperature unit burn-in.

Memkor offers our customers a controlled Bill of Material (BOM), obsolescence management process to facilitate smooth qualification and increased product longevity.
