The AMPEX miniR700v2 is a P3I update to the original miniR700 with the same SWaP (Size, Weight, and Power), but with dramatic increases in throughput speed, storage, and user configuration flexibility. The system updates include a new Intel Atom CPU, lower cost solid state removable memory, new multiplexer, higher speed interfaces, the Ampex ACCE Management Software, and full backwards compatibility to the existing I/O module interfaces. This provides existing users compatibility with their existing data interfaces from the Ampex miniR700, AMux 600 & AMux 700 Multiplexers. Besides the breadth of I/O interfaces offered for traditional instrumentation sources such as serial, SD/HD Video, MIL-STD-1553B, Analog, Firewire, Gigabit Ethernet, etc, the new miniR700v2 can be configured with a new PCIe I/O interfaces for higher-speed channels to be released, and/or an additional PCIe CPU. The base mini-recorder unit now includes Gigabit Ethernet and the Power Filter as standard. The new lower cost solid state mRMM (mini Removable Memory Module) will feature a USB3.0 interface to the system bus, as well as a direct download from the mRMM to a user laptop or server. The mRMM is similar to that used in other Ampex NAS Tuff Serv product lines. Initial released memory capacities will be from 64GB to 1TB+. Ampex will release various mRMM storage and performance options over time for customer applications.
Future enhancements will include option for configuring a Radiation Tolerant (RT) watchdog monitor for new space applications and custom interfaces to meet unique customer requirements.
