COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Pinnacle Data Systems, Inc. (PDSi) (NYSE Amex: PNS) today announced three new I/O cards for embedded computing applications, each featuring leading-edge technology from Intel Corporation.

The PMC-SD18 board is a SATA storage module in PMC mezzanine card form factor which provides up to 160GB of storage using compact 1.8 inch micro SATA drive components. The use of these low-profile drives ensures that this PMC fits on all compatible CompactPCI, VME, and AdvancedTCA carrier boards without any risk of mechanical interference. PDSi offers the choice of either standard rotating hard disk drives (HDDs) or the newest Intel® X18-M Mainstream SATA solid-state drives (SSDs). Unlike traditional HDDs, these SSDs have no moving parts, resulting in a quiet, cool, highly rugged storage solution that also provides faster system responsiveness.

PDSi also announced a similarly-equipped SATA storage module in XMC form factor, the XMC-SD18. “We believe this board breaks new ground as the industry’s first SATA storage XMC module,” said Michael Darnell, VP of PDSi’s Embedded Products Group. “Equipped with Intel’s industry-leading SSD’s, the XMC-SD18 offers one of the most compact, dependable, high-performance storage mezzanine solutions for critical applications.”
