SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH � September 12, 2005 � Parvus Corporation today announced the availability of the new COM-1440, a PC/104-Plus form factor 4-port high-speed USB 2.0 host controller board capable of directly powering attached USB devices. The COM-1440 now also comes with onboard mounting support for two M-Systems� uDiskonChip� (uDOC) Solid State Disks (SSD).

Delivering USB data transfer speeds of up to 480 Mbps, the COM-1440 features four downstream USB ports, along with two onboard SSD mezzanine sockets for up to 4GB of secure high-speed Flash memory. Notably, two of the product�s USB ports are enhanced to supply 2 Amps of drive for directly powering attached USB mass storage and other devices through the USB cable.

The new uDOC compatible sockets enable rugged high-performance, solid state storage with high throughput rates (20MB/sec read and 10MB/sec write) using USB 2.0, a modern design approach for advanced embedded systems. The two memory device sockets are connected in parallel with two of the external USB ports. When the two uDOC sockets are populated, one standard (500mA) USB port and one enhanced drive USB port are free for system expansion. Accessible as independent logical disks and available in extended temperature formats, uDOC encrypted solid state flash disk devices from M-Systems are available in capacities ranging from 64 to 2048MB each.
