ALISO VIEJO, Calif., July 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced the world's only secure, half-terabyte (TB) solid state drive (SSD) for mobile video surveillance operations, storage area networks (SANs) and other high capacity storage applications requiring superior real-time data protection. The ruggedized TRRUST-Stor™ Series 200 2.5" SATA SSD operates at sustained 200 megabytes per second (MB/s) and delivers the industry's fastest full-hardware-based erase time of less than 10 seconds. The self-encrypting, half-terabyte SSD is available now and currently shipping to multiple customers to support applications requiring massive secure storage capacity.
"Data storage security and reliability are primary defenses in the battle to protect critical information from loss or breach that can put individuals, companies, organizations and nations at high risk," said Charlie Leader, general manager for Microsemi's Power Management Group. "Our TRRUST-Stor drives are built for extreme reliability and data integrity, and are the most secure, most reliable SSDs available on the market. We also leveraged our miniaturization technology to create an SSD that is only 9.5 millimeters in height and meets small form factor parameters required for SANs."
The half-terabyte TRRUST-Stor SSD provides military-grade ruggedization as well as unparalleled safeguards and processes for physical data storage with multiple layers of security features. The suite of industry-leading features prevents corruption and unauthorized access with hardware- and software-based barriers. The drive features a built-in compact in-line encryptor with hardware-implemented, NIST-certified AES 256 encryption using the XTS block cipher mode.
Ruggedization features include superior error correction, 9 petabytes write endurance, power loss protection and more than 2 million hours mean time between failure (MTBF). Enhanced mechanical construction ensures operation in extreme temperatures, humidity, shock and vibration.
The TRRUST-Stor Series 200 is powered by Microsemi's second generation Armor™ processor, enabling robust performance. The Series 200 SSDs also offer the ability to load encryption keys. Customers can input their own AES-256 keys, purge them and reload as needed. Microsemi's TRRUST-Purge™ technology destroys keys in less than 30 milliseconds when activated.
TRRUST-Stor Series 200 Features:
- Capacity: Half-terabyte non-volatile storage using reliable, long-life Single-Level Cell (SLC) NAND flash
- Performance: 200 MB/s sustained reads and writes
- Encryption: Hardware-based implementation of AES-256 encryption with XTS, protecting sensitive data
- Security: Flexible key management with loadable AES encryption keys. An optional hardware-based authentication enables higher levels of security. The TRRUST-Purge function erases the keys in under 30ms, rendering data forensically unrecoverable.
- U.S.-made with full BOM and assembly control
- Fast Erase Capability: Hardware-based fast clear of the entire drive occurs in less than 10 seconds
- High-reliability: Developed to endure harsh environments, TRRUST-Stor SSD's ruggedized specifications allow the disk drive to withstand up to 3000 gravitational (G) shock and 30 G root-mean-square acceleration (Grms) of vibration.
- Obsolescence Management: Leveraging Microsemi Armor flash management processor and IP, product obsolescence is mitigated.
