The unique requirements of the aerospace industry dictates that storage solutions are able to withstand demanding environmental conditions such as extreme temperatures, shock, vibration, moisture, dust, salt spray and altitude, while still reliably logging mission critical data. Given the extended life cycles of military programs, storage products with long term availability are desired to avoid or minimize costly re-qualifications and to ensure consistent performance and host compatibility, a locked configuration is mandatory.
Delkin builds all industrial and OEM products with a controlled BOM, such that the flash, controller and firmware are all locked in the part number. Delkin products are built to withstand MIL- STD-810G environmental testing, but when an application has specific requirements, Delkin can perform custom testing and product modifications to withstand the unique conditions.
Delkin has delivered flash storage solutions for applications such as helicopter black box recording, jet mission data collection, unmanned aircraft base station and flight data recording, as well as in-flight entertainment and Wi-Fi services.
GEN V CF
Delkin’s UDMA 6 CompactFlash cards utilize the latest industrial controller technology to provide the most extensive power interruption and read disturb management available, thereby delivering the ultimate protection for critical data.
High Performance CF
For embedded applications requiring maximum speed, high capacity or both, the Delkin Ultra High Performance CompactFlash cards utilize a 4-channel UDMA 7 controller to deliver the fastest and largest capacity industrial temperature solutions on the market.
Industrial 2.5″ SSD
For legacy SATA designs with a standard 2.5” HDD or SSD slot (SFF-8201 form factor*) the Delkin Devices’ S225 delivers a controlled industrial solution in two flash grades and a wide range of capacities.
For embedded platforms which have used CompactFlash as a boot drive or other storage medium, and now face a migration from PATA to SATA due to a processor change, CFast is a logical choice for new designs.
Utilizing the same connector as a standard 2.5” HDD or SSD, the uncased SlimSATA form factor (conforming to the JEDEC MO-297 standard) is an excellent alternative for embedded applications not restricted to the mechanical outline of a traditional hard drive.
