smart s5e ssdSMART Modular Technologies, Inc., a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc., and a leader in specialty memory, storage and hybrid solutions including memory modules, Flash memory cards and other solid state storage products, today announced a new addition to its SMART RUGGED product offering, the S5E 2.5" SATA SSD.

The S5E SSD provides comprehensive encryption and security features such as quick erase, SMART’s Security Data Elimination Technology (SDET) which meets current declassification standards, and erase triggers, making it an ideal data recording and storage tool for surveillance, defense and telemetry applications where data must remain secure or erased in mission-critical scenarios.

With two external triggers, the S5E is equipped with AES-XTS-256-bit encryption, which automatically protects all data written to the drive. Additional data elimination features built into the S5E are designed to meet or exceed all regulations for current military data erasure standards.

In addition to its encryption and erase features, the S5E offers up to 480GB of storage using single-level cell (SLC) NAND flash. The S5E SLC SSD is designed for both endurance (capable of capturing up to 40,000 total drive writes) and environmental stress protection (temperature and humidity, altitude performance, and shock and vibration protection), offering users a level of protection custom suited for integration into high stress or rugged-use applications.

"With the S5E, SMART has designed an SLC-based SSD that can be easily installed in a wide variety of applications," stated Mike Guzzo, of SMART Modular Technologies, "The new S5E is tough enough for industrial or military applications and other rugged uses straight out of the box, and when implemented with protected data features, it provides the security protection and quick erasure necessary for our most demanding customers and their applications."
