SCSI bridge provides drop-in, solid state replacement for ageing/failing legacy SCSI drives
June 13, 2012 // Julien Happich
The SCSI Bridge drive launched by Solid State Disks solves the growing and increasingly expensive problem of repairing or replacing ageing and failing data storage drives.
These difficult to repair legacy components include SCSI-based hard disks (3.5 inch and 5.25 inch HDD), magneto optical (MO), quarter-inch tape (Pertec, QIC DAT, DLT 3490), Jazz, ZIP, Bernoulli and floppy (FDD) drives on computer-based legacy equipment. The SCSI Bridge drive combines proven SCSI drive architectures (SASI, SCSI-1, SCSI-2) with industry-standard, solid state CompactFlash card technology that can be seen as SCSI drives by the host system. Importantly, SCSI Bridge is completely programmable, enabling the SCSI driver implementation nuances of all equipment manufacturers to be fully emulated. The SCSI Bridge drive currently supports CompactFlash drives up to 256GB and utilizes a 3.5 inch form factor (or larger 5.25 inch form factor). It is available in two package types either with no externally removable card as a hard disk replacement or with an externally removable CompactFlash card slot as magneto optical, Jazz, ZIP, tape or floppy drive replacement. Microcode is field-upgradeable via the integral RS-232 serial interface which also enables real-time diagnostics to be undertaken. Board power is only 5V and there is an optional add-on display and push-button user interface for use with the tape package.
