Micro/sys Releases Two Space-Saver StackableUSB Flash Boards for Increasing Storage in Embedded Systems
Montrose, CA (PRWEB) August 19, 2011
Micro/sys solves OEMs needs for maximum storage at high-speed data transfer rates with the release of the USB1411 and the USB1410. At only 1.85 x 1.74, these two new boards are one-quarter the size of the 104 Form Factor, making them true space-saver devices.
Built with ruggedness in mind, the USB1411 is a RoHS compliant, solid state version of a hard drive that provides OEMs with up to 2GB of NAND Flash storage at transfer speeds up to 30MB/s and operates from -40oC to +85oC (ET version). The StackableUSB technology combined with the onboard flash ensures that the USB1411 delivers enhanced shock and vibration performance on a small form factor. The USB1411 is ideal for data logging and application programs.
An alternative way to the provide mass storage for embedded systems is the USB1410. Designed for slightly less hostile environments, this RoHS compliant board can accommodate micro SD removable media cards of up to 32GB while still maintaining transfer speeds up to 35MB/s. Powered by SMSCs USB2240 Flash media controller, the USB1410 can support 4-bit microSD cards. Both the USB1410 and USB1411 can connect via StackableUSB, or the traditional Type B mini-USB connector making them ideal desktop solutions.
To ease interfacing into embedded systems, the USB1411 and USB1410 support the USB Mass Storage function and, when included in BIOS, they support the USB boot function. Compatible software includes many Microsoft Windows applications, Apple OSx, and Linux. With designers in mind, Micro/sys offers easy-to-use development kits that include the board installed with all options, a complete cable set, sample software, full documentation, and more.
The basic USB1411 starts at $ 85 in single quantity (http://www.embeddedsys.com/subpages/products/images/pdf/microsys_usb1411_datasheet.pdf). An extended temperature (-40C to +85C) version of the USB1411 is available. The basic USB1410 starts at $ 105 in single quantity (http://www.embeddedsys.com/subpages/products/images/pdf/microsys_usb1410_datasheet.pdf). Significant OEM discounts are available for both boards.
