SATA & PATA to USB High Speed Mass Storage Adapter.
SPUMA is a unique device that allows a USB Mass Storage Class device to be hooked up to a standard IDE or SATA Host port. Normally, this would be quite a silly thing to do, as computers are rife with USB ports. However, for forensics works, it is an incredibly bad idea to hook a random mass storage device with evidence up to any old USB port on a forensics PC.
Some form of write protection should be used for the USB mass storage device. With SPUMA, you can use your existing SATA or PATA write protection to examine a USB mass storage device. Most importantly, SPUMA moves data at USB HIgh Speed rates. In fact, we have clocked it at over 30MB per second transfer transfer rates.
This low cost adapter allows you to leverage your existing investment in write protection and adds a significant amount of flexibility to your data collection toolkit.
