RADX Technologies® announced Trifecta-SSD™, a new family of COTS, PXIe (and CPCIe), single-slot, NVMe SSD RAID modules. Optimized for wideband, high-speed, data recording, playback and storage applications, Trifecta-SSD Modules provide the highest performance, capacity and best value (price-per-terabyte) available in the test & measurement market today.
“At 1 GHz RF bandwidth per channel, LibertyGT® Real-Time, Modular RF/IF Record and Playback systems write 5 GB/Sec per channel to SSD RAID, so 4 TB Module, can only store 13 minutes of data,” said Ross Q. Smith, RADX co-founder and CEO. “Our customers are asking for multiple missions and hours of record time, which would require five PXIe slots per channel. In response, we developed Trifecta-SSDs to address long duration, multimission, wideband record and playback requirements in a single PXIe slot. Then we priced Trifecta-SSD Modules to be affordable so that LibertyGT and non-LibertyGT customers alike won’t have to compromise their recording duration specs or their budgets.”
Trifecta-SSD’s PCIe Gen 3 x8 architecture combines four or eight M.2 NVMe SSDs in a single-slot PXIe/CPCIe module that supports 8, 16 or 31TB, which is 2 to 8x greater than other single-slot SSD RAID modules. Optimized for wideband RF/IF applications, Trifecta-SSD Modules can sustain 6.9 GB/Sec sequential write performance and > 7 GB/Sec sequential read performance (depending on configuration and application).
Trifecta-SSD Modules are designed to comply with key standards including RoHS, FCC Part 15 Subpart B, Class A, CE and MIL-PRF-28800F. Trifecta-SSD Modules support 64-bit Windows operating systems and select Linux distributions upon request. Trifecta-SSDs are priced at $6,999 (8TB), $13,999 (16TB) and $19,999 (31TB), which is about 1/2 to 1/3 the price-per-terabyte of competitive products. Trifecta-SSD delivery is < 30 days ARO, beginning in Q319.
