RADX Announces Trifecta Family of COTS PXIe SSD RAID Modules

The RADX Trifecta-SSD Family Sets New Standards for Performance, Capacity and Value for Single-Slot, PXIe (and CPCIe) NVMe SSD RAID Modules with up to 31 Terabytes per Slot, Sequential Write/Read Performance > 6 GB/Sec and Pricing that Delivers Unprecedented Value

Austin, Texas (PRWeb) May 20, 2019

RADX Technologies® (RADX), today at National Instruments™ NI Week 2019, announced Trifecta-SSD™, a new family of COTS, PXIe (and CPCIe), single-slot, NVMe SSD RAID modules. Optimized for wideband, high-speed, data recording, playback, and storage applications, Trifecta-SSD Modules provide the highest performance, capacity, and best value (price-per-terabyte) available in the Test and Measurement (T&M) market today.

“At 1 GHz RF bandwidth per channel, LibertyGT® RF/IF Record and Playback systems write 5 GB/Sec per channel to SSD RAID, and with a 4 TB Module, we can only store 13 minutes of data,” said Ross Q. Smith, RADX Co-Founder and CEO. “Our customers are asking for multiple missions and hours of record time, which would require five PXIe slots per channel. In response, we developed Trifecta-SSDs to address long duration, multi-mission, wideband record and playback requirements in a single PXIe slot. Then we priced Trifecta-SSD Modules to be affordable so that LibertyGT and non-LibertyGT customers alike won’t have to compromise their recording duration specs or their budgets.”


Trifecta-SSD’s PCIe Gen 3 x8 architecture combines four or eight M.2 NVMe SSDs in a single-slot PXIe/CPCIe module that supports 8, 16, or 31TB, which is 2-to-8 times greater than other single-slot SSD RAID modules. Optimized for wideband RF/IF applications, Trifecta-SSD Modules can sustain 6.9 GB/Sec sequential write performance and > 7 GB/Sec sequential read performance (depending on configuration and application). Trifecta-SSD Modules are designed to comply with key standards including RoHS, FCC Part 15 Subpart B, Class A, CE and MIL-PRF-28800F. Trifecta-SSD Modules support 64-bit Windows operating systems and select Linux distributions upon request. Trifecta-SSDs are priced at $6,999 (8TB), $13,999 (16TB) and $19,999 (31TB), which is about 1/2 to 1/3 the price-per-terabyte of competitive products. Delivery is 30 days ARO or less, beginning in Q319. For details, please visit

“We initially contemplated these SSD Modules solely for our own LibertyGT Systems,” said Wade Lowdermilk, RADX Co-Founder and CTO. “But given the industry need for affordable wideband storage, we thought there could be wide demand for a value-oriented, high-performance, high-capacity product. We then needed a marketing name, and because these modules are fast, good AND cheap, ‘Trifecta’ was the obvious choice.”

Distributed By TEVET

Trifecta-SSDs will be distributed exclusively in North America by TEVET, LLC (TEVET), a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned and HUBZone Small Business and leading supplier of T&M products, including RADX LibertyGT Systems, to prime contractors, U.S. and Allied government organizations including the DoD and DoE.

“TEVET is pleased to offer the Trifecta-SSD product family to our customers,” said Tracy Solomon, TEVET CEO and Founder. “COTS, high-performance data storage capabilities are critical for wideband applications and Trifecta-SSD Modules enable TEVET to meet or exceed our customer’s requirements in a single-slot while remaining mindful of budgets.”

At NI WEEK 2019

RADX (Booth 560) and TEVET (Booth 463) will demonstrate Trifecta-SSD products, as well as a LibertyGT LGT1410 26.5 GHz, 765 MHz RTBW Wideband RTSAs and RF Recorders and LibertyGT LGT1211 6 GHz, 1 GHz RTBW Wideband RF Capture, Record, Playback and Analysis Systems.
