  • ALBUQUERQUE, NM (September 19, 2006) Today, GE Fanuc Embedded Systems, a leading provider of embedded computing technology, announces its new Telum 200-SATA AdvancedMC hard drive module. The Telum 200-SATA Serial ATA hard disk drive module is designed for use with AdvancedTCA single board computers and carrier cards from GE Fanuc Embedded Systems’ extensive line of embedded products and also those from other providers. Typical applications where the Telum 200-SATA can be used are media gateways, central office servers, medical and video imaging equipment, embedded storage systems, and host-attached mass storage subsystems. The AMC.3-compliant Telum 200-SATA AdvancedMC module is available in multiple - configurations, including standard or continuous operation (extended duty cycle) hard drives. This flexibility insures compatibility with AdvancedTCA and MicroTCA blade and carrier products, and offers customers a wide range of hard disk configuration options making the Telum 200-SATA an ideal AdvancedMC storage solution for communications, commercial, and military applications. "The Telum 200-SATA drive module will provide customers with a flexible storage solution that can be deployed in a variety of systems ranging from lower cost mass storage subsystems to the most demanding enterprise class storage applications requiring 24/7, year-round hard drive availability", said Lisa East, I/O Product Management, GE Fanuc Embedded Systems. "The single-width, full-height Telum200-SATA with integrated Module Management Controller and on-board multiplexer assures customers of product interoperability with other products in the AdvancedTCA or MicroTCA ecosystem." The Telum 200-SATA’s multiplexer gives engineers a great deal of flexibility by allowing the hard drive to switch between common options region ports two or three, thus providing for design options such as hard drive redundancy and failover. In addition, the IPMI and hot swap capabilities of the Telum 200-SATA make field operation and maintenance easier by allowing the end-user to constantly monitor system status and, when required, change boards without shutting down an entire system. Available now, the Telum 200-SATA is offered with Carrier Grade Linux® and VxWorks® support, and is RoHS-compliant. # # # About GE Fanuc Embedded Systems GE Fanuc Embedded Systems is a leading global provider of embedded computing solutions for a wide range of industries and applications.
