The DM-U.2 PXI Express Storage Unit provides up to 7.68TB of removable solid state storage (SSD) in a single PXI Express slot.  It addresses the requirements of users who need to remove and replace PXI Express storage for security or other reasons.  This includes data recording applications where recorded media must be quickly removed and replaced with fresh media between recording missions.   It also facilitates easy data removal for data security reasons when a system is left unattended.

Each DM-U.2 connects with 4 lanes of PCI Express Gen 3 and supports data rates up to 4GB/s per unit. Performance and storage capacity can be increased by arranging multiple DM-U.2 in a software RAID configuration.

The DM-U.2 complies with PCIe Gen3 protocol standards and uses industry standard NVM Express (NVMe) SSD storage devices.  NVMe storage devices bypass traditional storage controllers by using a direct to PCI Express connection for the best possible performance. The NVMe drives are compatible with most operating systems including Windows and Linux using standard OS provided drivers. Please contact Conduant sales for information on currently available drive models including capacities and durability.

PXIe storage modules offered by Conduant are compatible with all major PXI Express chassis models, including National Instruments (NI) and Keysight Technologies.
