Chatsworth, CA, January 2007 – Aitech Defense Systems, Inc., the world's first and largest independent manufacturer of board and subsystem level products for harsh environment defense, aerospace and astronautics applications, now offers a high density PMC that provides up to 64 GB of NAND Flash memory in two banks with DMAC. With its new FPGA-based DMA controllers, the enhances M222 provides sustained data transfer rates of over 45 MB per second as well as a low power consumption of 7W. Desgined for high-speed read, write and erase performance, the M222 is suitable for high-density, local data storage of radar or sonar images and software programmable radio ELINT data or other graphics.

The Aitech Flash Memory Manager (FMM) software package can automatically treat the Flash memory as the system's disk drive under the operating systems, thus providing real-time operating system (RTOS) support. The FMM driver package features automatic wear leveling to ensure that write-erase cycles are uniformly balanced across the entire device, preventing any one block from excessive write-erase cycles.

The new M22 also provides full file system read/write emulation, automatic block managment, and interleaved DMA memory accesses of up to 32 memory banks for high performance. As part of this enhancement, the M222 now offers a high performance, flexible, onboard FPGA-based Flash SMA controller providing "write ahead" buffers for write/erase operations, substantially increasing data throughput.

Available in commercial, rugged and military grade configurations, the M222 Flash memory PMCs are designed to resist shock and vibration for trouble-free performance, even in high stress military environments. All boards feature metal thermal frames for excellent rigidity and shock resistance, and combine thermal heatsinks to allow optimal heat transfer to the enclosure’s sidewalls. The M222 is available in forced air-cooled and standard ANSI/VITA 20 conduction-cooled mechanical formats. Both versions are single slot PMC modules that connect and take all of their power from the CompactPCI, VMEbus or PCI base board.
