Flash Disk Replaces Mechanical Drives

The DD59-AFD ATA flash disk is described as a cost-effective alternative for industries and businesses needing to replace failing mechanical hard drives, CD-ROM drives, and microdrives. Customized for solid-state mass storage applications in a 2.5" form factor, the drive plugs into standard IDE connectors found in single-board computers, PC104 systems, and portable PCs. It integrates a microcontroller and file-management firmware that communicates with standard ATA interfaces. Operating from a 5V supply, capacities range from 32 MB to 16 GB. Other features include a standard 44-pin, 2-mm male connector, user-selectable master/slave operation via an external jumper, and operating-system support under Windows 95/98/ 2000/NT/CE/XP, Macintosh, and UNIX.
