Editor's comments:- among the thousands of regular CPU cards and interface modules which GDCA maintains - I was able to find at least 1 SSD - a 6U VMEbus compatible 2.5GB flash card - originally designed and marketed by DY-4 Systems - SVME/DMV-570-105. I'm sure that many others will be added to this list.

SSD market history

storage search banner

"the defense or medical industries have a limited market share of the overall market pie, in terms of the consumption of components. So if there is a substantial demand for newer technology and competitive pressures, the older (smaller) piece of the pie has to be EOL’ed — since long term support takes away valuable resources that can be focused on the latest innovative products from the OEMs."
