SMART’s RUGGED M4 2.5” SATA solid state drives (SSDs) combine high performance, superior reliability and data security into a single ruggedized design, making them the ideal solutions for ground and air defense, industrial automation, transportation, medical and telecommunication applications. The SMART M4 is designed to meet the needs of applications where temperature tolerances are as important as high performance and reliability. A robust set of diagnostic information is provided through SSD-specific S.M.A.R.T attributes which can be used to monitor the health of the drives.
The M4 features two HW-based erase triggers, one on each end of the drives. In addition, the SATA connect has 30 micro inches of gold plating for a more reliable connection. The M4 is also available with staking, conformal coating, specialty firmware and extended burn in, if needed. The M4 automatically protects all data written with AES 256-bit encryption. Also included is the Security Erase feature per the ATA-8 specification whereby the encryption key will be deleted in less than one second. The M4 features the write-protect feature.
