過酷な環境向けの SSDです:

"Super Talent Introduces New SSD's for Harsh Environments"
 July 1st, 2011

  "Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of flash storage
   solutions and DRAM memory modules, today announced the introduction
   of the DuraDrive AT3, an SSD for demanding industrial environments."
  "... For such environments, we have developed the DuraDrive; 
   a line of Solid State Disks designed to perform in environments well
   beyond the standard consumer specifications. Containing no moving
   parts, an SSD naturally performs well in high-shock and high-vibration
   environments. This makes SSD great candidates for such installations,
   but temperature has always been a limiting factor. While most drives
   were designed to function in environments from 0℃ -> 70℃, the new
   DuraDrive has been specially designed to withstand operating
   temperatures from -40℃ -> +85℃."
