Super Talent have just announced a new member to their range of 1.8-inch solid state IDE flash drives, this latest model topping the lineup with 16GB of storage space.
Get all the details on it within the official press release folks.
San Jose, California - October 23, 2006 -- Super Talent Technology, a leading manufacturer of memory modules and flash products, today announced a 16GB solid state disk (SSD) that is fully compatible with industry standard 1.8" notebook IDE drives.
Super Talent SSD's employ an industry standard 44-pin IDE connector that is pin compatible with laptop IDE drives. Moreover, they have the same physical dimensions as standard 1.8" IDE laptop drives, making them an easy drop-in replacement for a conventional hard drive. But unlike conventional hard drives, SSD's are built with solid state NAND flash chips, and therefore have no moving parts. The result is a storage device that is far more rugged and reliable than a conventional hard drive with no risk of a head crash. These characteristics make SDD's superb for industrial and military applications where reliability is critical. And since SDD's use only a fraction of the power of standard hard drives they are perfect for extremely low-power environments as well.
