(BRK.A), (BRK.B)

Virtium Solid State Storage and Memory, a leading provider of solid-state drive (SSD) and memory solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) markets, today announced a global distribution agreement with Berkshire Hathaway’s Mouser Electronics, the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components. Virtium’s portfolio of SSD and memory solutions — including StorFly® and TuffDrive® SSDs, vtView® SSD software, and DDR memory modules — are now available through the global distributor’s website, Mouser.com.

“Mouser is a premier name in global distribution, enabling manufacturers such as Virtium to efficiently reach and support customers domestically and internationally with advanced technology solutions,” said Michael Nilsson, senior vice president of worldwide sales at Virtium. “We’re looking forward to our relationship with Mouser serving existing customers and generating new ones for Virtium’s SSD, memory and software solutions.”

The distribution agreement extends the global reach of Virtium industrial SSD, IIoT storage, SSD utility software, and industrial-embedded memory designed to satisfy the storage and memory demands of wide-ranging market segments — communications, energy, industrial automation, medical, networking, smart cities, transportation, and video/signage.

The StorFly and TuffDrive line features SSDs for extreme conditions — common in embedded and IIoT storage applications — through industrial temperature (I-Temp) support, which allows the drives to withstand temperatures from minus 40 to 85 degrees Celsius. These industrial SSDs include vtGuard™ technology for added power-fail protection against data loss, which can be accessed by Virtium’s vtView® software. Virtium’s vtSecure® suite, developed for enhanced data protection, includes optional AES256 self-encrypting drive (SED) and secure-erase technology, integrated directly into drives. Virtium’s vtView industrial-embedded SSD software enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to retrieve time- and temperature-based SSD usage information. Reflecting their ability to deliver the longest product life storage, StorFly and TuffDrive SSDs carry three- or five-year warranties.

Spanning a range of densities and form factors, Virtium’s DDR and SDRAM industrial memory modules are designed to meet the mission-critical, extreme temperatures, high-reliability and long-life requirements for the most demanding embedded designs. The company’s extensive engineering expertise enables it to deliver very-low-profile memory in the highest density and smallest form factors possible.

With its broad product line and unsurpassed customer service, Mouser strives to empower innovation among design engineers and buyers by delivering advanced technologies. Mouser stocks the world’s widest selection of the latest semiconductors and electronic components for the newest design projects. Mouser Electronics’ website is continually updated and offers advanced search methods to help customers quickly locate inventory. Mouser.com also houses data sheets, supplier-specific reference designs, application notes, technical design information, and engineering tools.
