The new IDE15 Flash drives operate at 5V, providing low power data storage. They are initially available in capacities up to 128MB, with higher densities anticipated in the future. They fit into standard disk drive bays, support the industry standard IDE interface, and can be used in a wide range of computer applications. Since there are no moving parts, these IDE drives are inherently shock and vibration resistant. They perform 100% reliably even under harsh environmental conditions, making them ideal for mobile computing and critical data storage applications. This new product addresses the constant demand for high capacity data storage in high reliability systems, such as communications and medical instrumentation, where data integrity is a primary consideration.
