Industrial NVMe SSDs Pass Extreme Thermal Testing

BiTMICRO® Industrial NVMe SSDs
Pass Extreme Thermal Testing with High Performance at Heptagon Systems

FREMONT, Calif. USA, January 11, 2018 – BiTMICRO® Networks, Inc. has been shipping their latest military and industrial grade E-Disk® Altima™ II and Ace Drive™ II, NVMe and SATA 2.5″ SSDs since November 2017.

Heptagon Systems, an embedded server manufacturer, has been working with BiTMICRO to certify their new Industrial SSDs.

“We have tested the BiTMICRO 2TB ACE Drive II Industrial SSD in our HQ-BOX – Xeon-D-based compact fanless industrial server – while running it in a temperature chamber”, explains Stas Lapchev, VP of R&D of Heptagon Systems. “With ambient temperature ranges from -30°C to +72°C, the SSD continued to function properly with performance of 3GB/s read and 2.3GB/s write without degradation and has sustained temperatures even as high as 85°C (as measured on the SSD)”.

“We see strong demand”, continued S. Lapchev, “for SSDs to withstand the same temperatures as our rugged HQ-BOX. We are very pleased with the results we see from the latest BiTMICRO SSD”.

“BiTMICRO has been providing ruggedized and secure solid-state solutions to leading customers in enterprise, industrial and military markets for over 17 years. And since our inception, we have had the passion for meeting the expectations of our industrial and military-focused customers, bar none,” said Stephen Uriarte, President of BiTMICRO. “We are looking forward to supporting Heptagon Systems with our industrial solid-state drives.”
