AAO Collaborates to Design Rugged, High Speed, Removable Storage Solution

April 3, 2013

 Amphenol Aerospace Operations has collaborated with Datakey Electronics to provide a rugged, removable storage solution. The result of this collaboration provides designers with a ruggedized flash drive and panel-mount receptacle solution, the Ruggedized Memory Terminal (RMT).

The Ruggedized Memory Terminal (RMT) integrates components from both corporations.  Instead of using a standard USB type A connector, the RMT leverages Datakey Electronics' SR4220PCB receptacle, which is integrated into Amphenol's field-proven MIL-DTL-38999 connector.  The receptacle mates with Datakey Electronics' UFX RUGGEDriveTM memory tokens, which provide USB flash drive functionality, but have a more rugged construction and employ additional security features than consumer flash drives.  Amphenol's high speed Oval Contact System (OCS), on the alternate side of the RMT, provides a reliable interconnect system for ruggedized computers and devices.
