Innodisk's Fire Shield SSD(TM) has reportedly been developed to withstand extreme temperatures. It is apparently based on black-box technology in order to maintain 100% accuracy and integrity for the data on its NAND storage. So far, this new type of drive is available in a 3.5-inch SATA SSD form-factor.
Deirdre O Donnell,

Innodisk is a company involved in the manufacture of highly robust, reliable data storage for applications such as servers and others in need of serious hard-drives. It claims that its latest SSD is designed to survive heat equivalent to 800 degrees Celsius (or 1500 degrees Fahrenheit). This new technology involves a drive housing based on the flight recorders found in aircraft.

This Fire Shield SSD(TM) has apparently exhibited the abilty to keep data stored on it 100% accurate after exposure to its apparent maximum operating temperature for 30 minutes.Innodisk claims that this is due to its triple-layer enclosure, made of over 20 separate heat-resistant compounds. The innermost of these is described as a "heat-isolating lining material", which is surrounded by a drive-securing series of connectors and a "flame-resistant" copper alloy.

So far, this Fire Shield SSD is found in a 3.5-inch SATA SSD form, which is best suited to large-scale data management or other professional-grade applications. However, Innodisk is also directing this technology at the automotive industry and the data-storage solutions currently involved in it. Then again, this new Fire Shield protective standard may also make it to more conventional, 2.5-inch Innodisk drives one day.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
