G504 - NVMe SSD Rapid Storage Shuttle

Ultrafast NVMe SSD

The G504 is a CompactPCI Serial solid state drive shuttle. It is designed as a carrier board for a 2.5" NVMe SSD U.2 with ultra high data bandwidth for rapid data transfer. It is also possible to equip the G504 with an NVMe SSD M.2.

The solid state drive is intended to be used as first level storage, e.g., for buffering control data while they are analyzed.

Front Panel Status LEDs

The unit's front panel features two status LEDs signalizing power and activity.

Suitable for Various Application Areas

The G504 is suitable for, e.g., automation or power and energy applications.

Its compliance with the EN 50155 standard makes the board suitable for use in railway applications.
