RunCore to unveil encrypted solid state drives at CES 2012

The Chinese firm RunCore has given a sneak peak of what it intends to unveil at CES 2012. To the unknowing eyes these solid state drives appear pretty standard in the current market. Featuring a SATA III interface, read/write speeds of 540/500 MB/s and a Marvell controller. They also come in the standard 2.5″ form factor with a standard SSD design.
There will be three models named Xapear, Falcon and Pro V 7mm which will all feature slight variations in speed. The model that is of particular interest is the Xapear model. It uses AES128 bit encryption technology and RFID (radio-frequency identification) support so as to ensure a high level of data security. The real flash bit (the irony) is the ability to self-erase your solid state drive via a mobile phone command and less excitingly you can also check the SSD status using the mobile phone too.
