AMPEX Launches Network File Server Recorder for ?Attritable? Applications
December 25, 2019
Ampex Data Systems' Common Architecture Recorder shifts ruggedized data acquisition and storage from a capital expense to an operating cost.
Ampex Data Systems, an American electronics company, announced their solution for data acquisition, recording, and network attached storage (NAS) with the new Common Architecture Recorder (CAR). The CAR shifts ruggedized data acquisition and storage from a capital expense to an operating cost and is, according to the company, ideal for 'attritable' systems like unmanned aerial or ground vehicle applications.
The CAR weighs 2 pounds with a volume of 62 cubic inches, and up to 2 TB of storage. The CAR uses a non-proprietary, modular, extensible, Linux-based open architecture, providing the flexibility to add third-party applications without exclusionary constraints. Its 2 miniPCIe sites enable data options to include video with H.264 encoding, MIL-STD 1553, Gigabit Ethernet (fiber and dual copper), and others upon request. The CAR's USB Type C interface provides direct download to the embedded storage and carries a 5Gb/s USB 3.1 link with Power Delivery (USB-PD3). The USB-PD3 allows the CAR to automatically switch roles and function as either standard USB storage or as the host computer.
