SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 3, 2006--msystems (Nasdaq:FLSH - News), a leader in smart personal storage, today announced that it will be introducing mModule CF 5000, an Industrial Grade CompactFlash solution that will be available in a variety of capacities ranging from 32 megabytes to 8 gigabytes.
The addition of industrial grade CompactFlash to msystems' product line enables the Company to offer its customers a comprehensive set of solutions for the embedded market that also includes mSSD (formerly FFD(TM)), mDOC and the mModule uDOC and iDOC. Known for developing high performance memory solutions, msystems, through the mModule CF 5000, will also offer customers an unbeatable combination of outstanding reliability, security and an extended lifespan for an overall smarter solution. This is particularly important for mission-critical applications such as routers, PBXs, wearable computers, industrial PCs and point of sale (POS) equipment.
"Based on customer feedback and recent changes in the market, we see that the demand for industrial grade CompactFlash is quite strong. We believe that mModule CF 5000 provides the most rugged and reliable data storage solution for mission critical applications," said Noam Kedem, msystems' vice president of marketing. "We see this product introduction as building on our commitment to offer our customers a comprehensive range of solutions. mModule products, such as the CF 5000, deliver rugged and reliable memory solutions, made smarter."
With a central focus on developing smarter storage solutions, the mModule CF 5000 exemplifies a number of msystems' key attributes including:
High Performance - msystems' Ultra DMA 5 technology transfers data at a rate of 20MB/sec, and includes performance boosters such as multi-plane access and on-the fly error detection.
Outstanding Reliability - msystems' patented TrueFFS® technology in firmware brings top data integrity to mModule CF 5000, even during power loss. msystems' patented TrueFFS management solution applies dynamic bad block management, and error detection and correction code (EDC/ECC) to maximize data reliability.
Extended Lifespan - mModule CF 5000 performs dynamic and static wear-leveling to distribute data evenly over the flash media, thereby extending the flash lifespan up to 5 million write/erase cycles per block.
Powerful Protection - The mModule CF 5000 core implements sophisticated encryption algorithms, including 256-bit AES, sanitizing (Purge), and quick erase for superior security.
Highly Rugged - The mModule CF 5000 can withstand severe weather conditions, shock, high altitude and rigorous vibrations. mModule CF 5000 complies fully with MIL-STD-810F, meeting the strictest reliability requirements for mission-critical applications.
