Tropico PHT1230

Solid State Disks Ltd

Dependable Data Storage Solutions

We offer high reliability solid-state replacement drives for a wide variety of telecoms equipment.

Our CF2SCSI™ SCSIFlash™ drives can be used to replace drives with either internal storage media, such as magnetic HDDs and SSDs, or which use removable media, such as magnetic tapes, optical disks (CD / DVD), floppies and solid-state memory cards.

If you have a Tropico PHT1230 and its legacy SCSI data storage device (DDS tape drive) is starting to fail, or you fear it might soon, we can help.

The TROPICO PHT1230 was a development of the Brazilian Telecommunications Administration, also called TELEBRAS. The TROPICO PHT1230 is based around Intel 80386 and 8088 CPUs and software was mostly written using CHILL. It uses a SCSI variant for accessing some peripherals including tape drives. Tape drives are used for both office data backup and billing.

Our replacement drives have been tested and approved by a leading Brazilian telecom carrier. Also, if you still require removable storage, this can be accommodated through Compact Flash cards.

Where to next?

What is CF2SCSI™ SCSIFlash™?

Our drive solves the growing and increasingly expensive problem of repairing or replacing ageing and failing SCSI-based 2.5-inch, 3.5-inch and 5.25-inch hard disk drives, magneto optical drives, quarter-inch tape drives and floppy disk drives on computer-based legacy equipment used in telecoms and other industries.

Combining proven SCSI drive architectures (SASI, SCSI-1, SCSI-2) with industry-standard, solid state Compact Flash (CF) card technology our CF to SCSI (CF2SCSI™) SCSIFlash™ is a solid-state drop-in replacement for any style of SCSI-based drive. Moreover, we can accommodate a variety of connector/interface types including, but not limited to, Pertec, QIC DAT, DLT 3490, Jazz, ZIP and Bernoulli.

Our drives are completely programmable, enabling the SCSI driver implementation nuances of the original equipment manufacturers to be fully emulated. This means you won’t have to make any changes to your system. Our drives are truly swap-in replacements.
