LONGMONT, Colo., July 10 /PRNewswire/ — Conduant Corporation, the leading developer of direct-to-disk, long duration recording and playback systems, announced today the Big River LTX2 data recorder. The new recorder provides over 480 Mbytes/second (3.8Gbps) recording and playback performance in a space, weight and power efficient package designed for remote or portable applications.
"Increasingly, our customers are requiring small data recorder subsystems for applications with limited real estate such as remote mobile RF recording or airborne observation," said Ken Owens, CEO of Conduant. "As a result, Conduant has continued to refine the design, performance and capacities of our data recorders to meet the growing demands of customers including the aerospace, scientific research and defense communities. The Big River LTX2 is a reflection of our commitment to the evolving technology landscape with our highly configurable recording systems for virtually any application."
Features of the Big River LTX2
The Big River LTX2 can operate as a standalone system with network control or can be directly connected to a host computer via its Star Fabric PCI bridge interface. The 1U (1.75") high chassis, which is less than 16" in width and depth, accepts sixteen 2-1/2" disk drives for up to 3.2 Terabytes of storage capacity. The user may choose lower-cost, high-performance rotating disk storage or solid-state drives for more environmental tolerance such as shock, vibration, temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure, depending on the user application.
The Big River LTX2 is based on Conduant's StreamStor(TM) Amazon architecture which supports a wide variety of external, interchangeable interface mezzanine cards including FPDP, FPDP2, LVDS, Serial FPDP, and Camera Link. Command and control functions can be performed through the StarFabric* interface or through an Ethernet connection. Connectivity to a host computer using the StarFabric* interface provides full PCI performance for data retrieval at 200MB/s.
Requiring less than 120 Watts and a DC power source of 12 Volts, the Big River LTX2 can operate independently from a host computer over an Ethernet connection. An embedded Web server is provided for simple internet browser- based control if desired. Software applications can also utilize the StreamStor(TM) application program interface (API) from a network connected host computer for control of the device from a remote location. The Big River LTX2 system is rack mountable and has symmetric weight distribution for straightforward shock/vibration isolation and mounting. Nearly all internal cables have been eliminated for improved reliability, ease of assembly and mechanical robustness.
