128-Bit Controller Works With CompactFlash Or HDDs

Featuring compliance with the Advanced Encryption Standard, the OnSpec xSil261 controller chip provides 128-bit, hardware-encrypted security for use with UDMA compact flash (CF) memory or IDE/ATAPI hard-disk drives via a USB 2.0 interface. It’s hardware-embedded encryption/decryption function combines with two-level software authentication of passwords to prevent unauthorized access. The device can be configured to manage either a USB-to-CF or USB-to-IDE/ATA interface, but not both simultaneously. Configured for IDE/ATA, the chip allows two hard drives to operate as one. In production now, the xSil261 comes in a 48-pin, 9 mm x 9 mm LQFP. For pricing, call INTELLASYS CORP., Cupertino, CA. (408) 446-4222.
