Transcend has developed a short little 40-pin IDE Flash Module which plugs directly into a vacant IDE port on your motherboard for 8GB of solid state storage.
With built-in ECC checking and lower power consumption, as well as longer data durability and excellent performance, this would be an ideal solution for running your OS off.

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend), a global leader in flash memory products, is proud to launch the 8GB 40-pin Vertical High Speed IFM (IDE Flash Module), the highest capacity among this type of product worldwide. This IFM (Vertical Type) is compact in size, measuring just 61.0mm x 26.9mm x 7.1mm, and has strong data retention.
The 40-pin IDE Flash Memory Module is ideal to be used in harsher, more demanding industrial environments such as industrial PCs, embedded systems, medical instruments, factory automation systems, network infrastructures and other industrial equipment. Compared to a hard disk drive, an IFM offers better shockproof effect, longer data durability, and higher data transfer rate. With built-in ECC (Error Correction Code) functionality and lower power consumption, Transcend's IFM ensures highly reliable data transfer for high-end computing applications.
