Solutions

Solutions that span the industrial-embedded spectrum

Virtium provides industrial-grade solid state storage and memory solutions that meet the unique requirements of the industry segments listed below.

  • Data protection against unexpected power loss

  • Industrial temperature support (-40ºC to 85ºC)

  • Balanced sequential and random read/write

  • ESD, vibration and humidity resistance

  • Low power / long product life

Communications

Communications equipment continues to experience exponential increases in demand for data while simultaneously maintaining quality of service, reducing total power consumption, and increasing the return-on-investment on a bit-transfer basis. Implementations include: base stations, DSLAMs, PBX systems, multi-service gateways and remote access servers

Smart Cities

Smart Cities is a fast growing frontier for Industrial IoT and embedded technologies – including: sensors, vision systems, self-service kiosks, and devices connected by mesh networks to data centers for analyzing data and adjusting to changing usage patterns. This segment requires compact form-factors with low power requirements and tolerance to extreme temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, etc. as well as resilience to unexpected power loss.

  • Wide range of capacities
  • Multiple interfaces and form factors
  • Legacy support
  • 99.9% uptime
  • ROHS and REACH compliance

 

Networking

Networking applications represent the “last mile” of IT data/content. They continue to require quality of service/experience, a reduction in total power consumption and return-on-investment. Implementations include: switches and routers, supervisor and mezzanine cards firewall and VPN equipment and small cell networks.

Energy

The Energy segment is subjected to electro-static discharge (ESD), extreme temperatures and high humidity. Urban sprawl means more demands on energy grids so the backbone systems require efficient uninterrupted operation and high durability. Implementations include: substation control, monitoring/diagnostics, data loggers, smart grid controllers and distribution systems.

Medical

Medical applications are increasing in complexity and moving closer to the patient. This requires low-power, low-latency solutions at low costs. Implementations include: therapeutic devices, medical imaging, patient diagnostics, measurement and monitoring equipment.

Video and Signage

Professional media companies range from high-performance HD video capture to broadcast video serving and digital signage applications. Some devices require heavy write performance (data capture) – others require high read performance (video serving). Implementations include: professional video capture/editing, broadcast, ad terminals, indoor/outdoor multimedia signage, casino gaming and surveillance/security.
