Innodisk QEraser is designed for emergency data erase in a few seconds. QEraser can be triggered by shorting QEraser Pins (pin7 and pin8) with an external jumper or by sending an ATA Command. All Data Blocks on the Flash chip will be erased by sending the Flash Erase Command.
Innodisk’s Destroy function implements an ultimate data erase of the SSD. Once Destroy is triggered. All user data and SSD information, including SSD firmware, will be erased and UNRECOVERABLE. InnoRobust SATAIII SSD pin 7 and pin 8 will be set for QEraser. Destroy is optional and available for customization.
The Security Erase function is designed for emergency data erasure to comply with military standards. The erase function can be triggered by shorting the Security Erase Pin (SE) or by sending an ATA Command. All Data Blocks on the Flash chip will be erased by sending the Flash Erase Command. The SE Pin can be one of the following military Security Erase standards: AFFSI 5020, DoD 5220.22-M, USA Navy NAVSO P-5239-26, NSA Manual 130-2, USA-Army 380-19, NISPOMSUP Chap 8, Sect. 8-501, NSA Manual 9-12 and IRIG106. Word 159 of the Identify Table shows the SE pin’s functions. The Identify Table can be read by sending the ECh ATA command.
This command enable SSD into write protect mode, which is read-only. The SSD under write protect will overpass any write command.
Physical Data Destruction
Innodisk’s Physical Data Destruction Technology is a self-destructing design that is initiated through high voltage being supplied to an SSD to destroy its controller IC and flash IC. It stipulates a 28V pin assignment using a standard SATA connector. This can be achieved by using power pins 14 and 15 of a standard SATA connector. To ensure that each flash module is destroyed, a fuse is used to direct the current to each flash module sequentially.
