Product Lines and Applications
SSD – Industrial Solid State Drives (SSD) are the standard storage solution for most embedded systems. SSDs come in a wide variety of form factors including 2.5″, 1.8″ and others.
SATA Slim – SATA Slim is designed for hand-held devices, thin clients and industrial applications as it is compliant with JEDEC MO-297, while also being able to function both as a boot-up and data storage device.
M.2 SSD (Next Generation Form Factor) – The M.2 PCIe & SATA SSD hard drive, also known as Next Generation Form Factor, saves 40% space compared to mPCIe and is designed for ultra-thin or compact systems.
CFast – High capacity and high speed in a small form factor that is compliant with CFast 2.0 and is suitable for industrial and embedded applications.
mSATA – Industrial mSATA SSD are high performance, JEDEC MO-300 compliant modules that are suitable for space-constricted applications. Though the form factor is mPCIe, the module connects to the SATA host controller.
SATADOM® – SATADOM® SSD (Disk on Module) is Innodisk’s proprietary compact form factor suitable for 1U server applications. It sports optimized firmware and Cable-less power options making it the perfect boot-up drive solution for server and embedded applications.
ServerDOM™ – Tiny form factor designed for server use. Utilizing ServerDOM™ as a boot-up device frees up more space for additional storage while also simplifying server scaling.
Mini PCIeDOM – mPCIe form factor with PCIe Gen.1 interface for boot-up or storage applications. Compatible with a host of operating systems while also needing no driver.
nanoSSD – nanoSSD is an integrated, MO-276 compliant SATA device that sports an integrated controller in a single ball grid array, making it drastically simpler to design in. By supporting SATA III the nanoSSD ensures high speed and low power consumption.
CompactFlash Memory Card (CF) – Industrial CompactFlash CF memory cards are small form factors using the PATA interface that are suitable for industrial and other harsh environment applications.
Embedded Disk Card – PATA cards in different form factors that come in capacities ranging from 512MB to 256GB.
SD Card & MicroSD Card – Industrial-grade, SD 2.0/ SD 3.0 compatible SD & MicroSD cards that also feature iSMART technology to better monitor the status of the storage devices.
USB / USB EDC – Compact modules with a USB interface available in both type A and embedded USB (also known as eUSB). The modules come with different features, from plastic to metal housing and EDC options.
Industrial Embedded DRAM Memory Modules – Innodisk’s industrial embedded, JEDEC compliant DRAM are memory modules perfectly fit for gaming, POS, kiosk, medical and automation applications. The embedded series offers a full product line, from the newest sodimm DDR4 2666MT/s modules to legacy, industrial-grade SDRAM, and DDR1 solutions. The embedded series include Regular LONG DIMM, SODIMM and VLP form factors.
Server – Our Server Memory deliver high performance and work toward a full fan-less design with compact design and low power requirements. The modules are designed for use in the data center, telecom, workstation and server environments. All modules are stringently doubled-tested to ensure compliance, and all ECC and RDIMM are also equipped with 30μ” Golden Fingers.
Wide Temperature – The Innodisk Robust Memory series is DRAM made for though environments with extreme temperatures or rapid thermal cycling! These hardy modules are perfect for in-vehicle, outdoor kiosks, and aerospace & defense applications. All modules surpass the JEDEC standard and are certified for operation in temperatures ranging from -40° to 85° C.
Special Customised – Our Special Customized DRAM is memory modules with special characteristics and is tailor-made for specific applications. The robust XR-DIMM is available in both DDR4 and DDR3 versions and is designed for the extreme and mission-critical fields of Aerospace and Defense.
AI Accelerator – Innodisk’s AI accelerator card equipped with Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ X VPU supports the Intel OpenVINO™ toolkit, making it suitable for a wide variety of AI edge computing platforms
Communications – Flexible I/O expansion cards that provides stable connectivity and bandwidth to industrial systems, including robust PoE, CANbus, LAN, DIO and serial cards, available in form factors such as Mini PCIe, PCIe and M.2.
Our J1939-standard CANbus expansion cards are available for Windows systems, as well as Linux through a SocketCAN implementation. The GbE LAN network cards support I210 specifications. The Innodisk serial cards provide reliable RS232, RS422 and RS485 expansions.
Storage – Innodisk storage expansion cards comprise a multitude of interfaces and provide a reliable extension to you system. These I/O expansion cards allow for Mini PCIe and M.2 SATA card expansion and customized solutions ensure success in even the most space-constrained systems.
Disk Array – Our set of industrial-grade disk array cards gives easy access to hardware-built RAID through data striping and mirroring, and provides a RAID management system that ensures data integrity for embedded systems. These I/O expansion cards are offered in mini PCIe and M.2 SATA interface modules.
Display – Featuring 2D graphics engines with resolutions up to 1920 x 1080 and with support for both Windows and Linux operating systems, Innodisk’s Mini PCIe display cards are suitable for a wide variety of industrial platforms.
Testing Tool – Innodisk provides flash storage with different interfaces and form factors. In order to help customers, we also design the signal converter for testing purposes. The customer can test different types of embedded flash modules with one card.
In addition to Innodisk’s range of standard, high-reliability products, Astute can provide technical advice to develop and manufacture customer-specific solutions in conjunction with Innodisk, bringing its expertise to solve storage system design challenges
