RunCore Unveils the Xapear SSD with Remote Data Deletion and RFID Protection

RunCore, leading supplier of high-performance solid-state drives, announces the global launch of their Xapear Solid State Disc drive. RunCore's Xapear is a smart USB 2.0 connected SSD solution with RFID protection, allowing you to split your data into a freely accessible partition, and a hidden partition that only becomes accessible by applying a special RFID key to your SSD. Furthermore, the Xapear offers remote data destruction by simply sending an SMS over your GSM from your mobile device to the integrated GSM receiver, which then will immediately start overwriting all your data and thereby deleting all previous content. After successful data elimination the SSD's GSM will send a confirmation SMS to your mobile.

The Xapear comes with two RFID keys, that will be initialized by the users themselves. After this initialization users can use a "public" and a "hidden" partition and define their respective sizes. In regular use the "hidden" partition cannot be detected by others, only once the RFID key is being swiped over the Xapear SSD itself will the "hidden" partition appear. After another swipe this partition will disappear again.

RunCore Displays Single-Chip SSDs

RunCore showed off its engineering potential in four "single-chip" solid-state drives (SSDs). If we're playing semantics here, almost every USB flash drive in the market these days is a "single chip SSD", but in context of these drives, "single chip" refers to a component that combines MLC NAND flash and a SATA interface controller into a single package. The number of NAND flash channels internally is not known, but RunCore thinks these chips should offer good performance in the value segment.

The blue PCBs in the first picture depict single-chip SSDs in three main client form-factors: 2.5-inch SATA, 1.8-inch SATA, and mSATA. As you can see, there's just one main chip, no controller, no cache DRAM, nothing else, except power-conditioning components and firmware ROM chips on the back side of the PCB.

RunCore Launches the 7 mm Pro V Ultra Solid State Drive

It has been half a year since that the concept of "Ultrabook" was proposed by Intel at Computex 2011.
