News Innodisk's New Fire Shield SSD Can Withstand 800C for 30 Minutes

The weak point here are the power and data cable connectors. You really can't protect those as they have to be exposed. So this is likely why you have to send the drive back to "extract the chips" as the interface will have melted/burned off. If they designed it intelligently they would have used opto isolation so the heat can't transfer via the burning connectors.

I wonder if it's using ceramics or ablative type shielding?
