Storage, I/O and Carriers
Elma offers the most complete line of Storage Modules in the embedded computing industry. Board sizes include 3U, 6U and mezzanine form factors in VPX, VME, cPCI, PMC and XMC standards.
Solid state drives (SSD) can survive in some of the most demanding environments around. That’s why all of our storage products are available with the latest in SSD products. In addition, SSD technology enables board level products that offer features like fast and secure erasure, wear leveling and endurance monitoring in both single level cell (SLC) and multi-level cell (MLC) versions.
Flexibility, high availability and security. Elma’s line of front removable storage products provide these advantages in a variety of board form factors using the latest in solid state and rotating storage choices.
All of Elma's 2.5" drive based embedded storage products accept both rotating drives or solid state drives. Hard Disk Drives (HDD) offer a reliable yet economical option for certain applications requiring the highest capacities.
MMS – Micro Mezzanine System - for flexible I/O.
At the heart of the MMS range is the ECM (Electrical Conversion Module) Carrier, which is a 3U VPX, XMC or PMC form factor board. An onboard FPGA provides the ability to interface up to six MMS modules placed on the carrier to the host board. Those modules – of which more than 20 are available off the shelf - support a range of I/O functionality including DAC, ADC, RS485, RS422, RS-232, LVDS and DIO.
Carriers add versatility to any system design and help minimize form factor incompatibility. Mezzanine module carrier cards bridge XMC and PMC modules to embedded backplanes such as VPX, VME, cPCI and PCI and add new functionality to any system when host card mezzanine positions are in short supply.
