Memoright unveiled its 2.5” GTR II series SLC solid state drive ruggedized for industrial and military applications. GTR II supports SATA II interface and is available in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacities. The GTR II series is designed specifically for industrial/military storage, with a -40 to +85ºC operating temperature range and very good resistance to extreme altitude, vibration and humidity.
The GTR II supports read/write speeds of 210MB/210MB. The solid memory drives support security erase & destroy functions and satisfies all military standards under the "MIL-STD-810F", which is the standard test method approved for use by all Departments and Agencies of the US Department of Defense (DoD).
The proprietary “In-Drive UPS” feature ensures 100% data integrity at all times. This avoids the occurrence of abnormal bad blocks and prolongs the useful life of SSDs.
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
