Memkor SSDs for Rugged Applications

All Memkor SSDs are designed with MIL-STD-810 requirements in mind, as our mission is to focus on solid state storage solutionscapable to operate anywhere in the world and under any circumstances. While we offer commercial versions, we design, select components, build and test (and test, and test) to ensure these are truly industrial SSDs with long life, no maintenance and solid health monitoring capabilities. All industrial version SSDs are conformally coated, are built using special Bill of Material and undergo through the rigorous multiday production testing spanning across SSD operational functions and specified deployment environment.

While hardening the SSD through the design and manufacturing to withstand harsh temperatures, humidity and altitude practically does not require architectural differentiation among Memkor industrial grade SSDs, meeting vibration and shock requirements lead to different levels of ruggedization in the design approach. As a result, Memkor Orange and Blue Series SSDs comply with applications up to 16.3 G RMS vibration profile. Should you look for higher resilience levels you may look at Memkor M-Ruggedized Black Series SSDs successfully tested to 30 G RMS vibration levels.

The SATA-like connectors are rated for a very low vibration level and a low number of insertions. Addressing both issues at the computer system design level, and with no change to SSD, requires extra engineering time, increases hardware footprint and cost. As an alternative, Memkor proposes using HiVibe© connector built using field proven Hyperboloid technology. It eliminates the need for extra effort andextra hardware and provides virtually unlimited number of SSD insertions as well as ruggedizes the SATA plug-receptacle connection to 30 G RMS vibration level. The HiVibe solution can be used on the Orange, Blue and Black Series 2.5" SSDs.

Memkor ORANGE and BLUE Series SSDs combine the quality and feature set required for a broadest set of ruggedized applications. Memkor BLACK Series SSD extends the resilience to an adverse environment even further.


Memkor ORANGE, and BLUE Series SSDs for Ruggedized Applications (up to 16.3 GRMS)

Memkor BLACK Series SSDs for M+ Ruggedized Applications (up to 30 GRMS)

Memkor Orange Series SSDs consists of a broad range of SSD solutions designed as drop-in replacements for traditional mechanical SATA 1.8”, 2.5” and 3.5” drives, as well as newer standards such as mSATA (MO-300B), or M.2 (formerly NGFF).

The PCIe/NVMe interface on the 2.5” (U.2) form factor allows to scale the performance up to 1,200MB/s and 200,000 IOps. The superior ruggedization of the ORANGE Series comply with a wide range of deployments in portable computers, desktops, data recorders, or servers. Addressing the on-going segmentation of the SSD application requirements, a number of security features, performance and power consumption options are offered.

Memkor Blue Series SSDs are geared towards high performance data recorders and servers requiring highest capacity per SATA/PCIe port.

Memkor Blue Series SSDs extend the capabilities and feature set of the Orange Series SSDs to the increased height 2.5” form factor in order to scale the capacity to 8192GB (MLC NAND) in 0.602” (15.3mm) or up to 12 TB if other special form factors can be supported. Memkor BLUE Series with PCIe interface provides an outstanding sustained read/write performance of up to 1,200MB/s and 200,000 IOps. The superior ruggedization of the BLUE Series address a broad range of Defense and Enterprise markets. Addressing the on-going segmentation of the SSD application requirements, a number of security features, performance and power consumption options are offered.
