| hold up
capacitors in 2.5" MIL SSDs|
do you really need them?
Editor:- March 31, 2015 - I've been looking at
different aspects of power hold up schemes in mission critical non volatile
memory systems for over 30 years. |
But every time I revisit this vast
topic and compare fresh examples from the market - I learn something a
little bit new.
My new blog -
to three seconds - demonstrates the extreme range of hold up times
now in the market inside leading edge 2.5" military flash SSDs.

Design and Develop Sealed Disk for Tactical Aircarft|
|MONTGOMERY, AL - May 09, 2002 - Miltope Group
today that they have been selected by Harris Corporation to design and develop
a sealed disk system to be evaluated for potential use in the Harris
Tactical Airborne Moving Map Capability ("TAMMAC") Digital Map
The portion of the system to be developed
and delivered by Miltope is the Internal Bulk Memory Module ("IBMM").
The Harris TAMMAC DMC has been selected as the standard digital map computer for
all Navy and Marine Corps aircraft upgrades. This latest TAMMAC DMC enhancement
will provide F/A-18E/F Super Hornet pilots with an advanced terrain awareness
and avoidance system integrated with a real-time in-the-cockpit digital map
The initial development contract calls for the design, development and
qualification of the IBMM system by the fourth quarter 2002. This relationship
between Miltope and Harris Corporation is intended to support the production and
delivery of new and upgraded TAMMAC DMC systems in any tactical environment
where extremely reliable mass storage capability is required.
The IBMM will be a customized version of the Miltope Model Mini-Disk
(MD4000) series of environmentally sealed and protected hard disk drives. This
version of the MD-4000 system is being designed to be 100% forward and backward
compatible with the existing versions of the current TAMMAC DMC IBMM. Miltope's
unique design capabilities pertaining to sealed, rotating storage media enables
the MD-4000 to function under the severe shock, acceleration, and thermal
environmental requirements of the Super Hornet aircraft. The MD-4000/IBMM
product is a new addition to the family of Miltope environmentally sealed disk
products used in Military and Commercial Avionics Computers, Servers,
Workstations, and Mass Storage Systems.
