LinkedIn +

Launched at this week’s ADAS & Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo Europe in Stuttgart, the new x8 STORAGE Gen4 E1.S from b-plus is a removable mass storage device with impressive data transfer rates of up to 96Gbit/s when used in combination with DATALynx ATX4 PCIe4; and 32Gbit/s in combination with BRICK2. The device offers continuous write performance even under demanding conditions at ambient temperatures of up to 60°C. A choice of 15TB, 30TB and 60TB versions can be ordered now and a 120TB version is scheduled for release in 2024.

With encryption based on TCG Opal Rev 2.01, the x8 STORAGE guarantees the highest level of security when transferring data within the setup or test carrier. In addition, the device supports hot-plug and hot-swap for b-plus’s BRICK2 and ATX4 systems, allowing drives to be easily swapped out as needed. This noticeably increases the flexibility, efficiency and performance of the system.

The x8 STORAGE features a PCIe 4.0 design, and eight NVMe enterprise SSDs, all of which work seamlessly together to deliver lightning-fast data transfer speeds. It also features a USB-C data interface and 12V input for standalone operation and easy access.

Visitors to ADAS & Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo Europe can see the new device installed on b-plus’s dedicated ‘MAX’ demo vehicle, at Booth 6126.
