Global SSD Storage Authority

Global SSD Storage Authority

With over 18 year experience www.PCcardsDirect.com… has offered companies  a complete offering of SSD storage solutions.  Specializing in commercial off-the-shelf solutions (COTS).

Beginning in the mid 1990’s as a Sandisk reseller and working with industrial firms to solve their memory storage needs, a relationship quickly developed as solution providers,  engineers and repair technicians were looking to solve the growing need of limited SSD storage.

As Sandisk introduced the PCMCIA card more industries began to integrate this form factor into their designs.  As the PCMCIA card began to find itself in aircraft, tanks and helicopters, mechanics struggled to keep up with the replacement of these storage cards.  When Sandisk discontinued production of PCMCIA cards users looked to other manufacturers to fulfill their requirements.  Companies such as SiliconSystems with their unique licensing agreement with Sandisk offered industrial PCMCIA cards in a variety of configurations.

SiliconSystems offered features such as SiDestroy and SiEarse.  These features would physically destroy the onboard controller and erase all data with no recovery, respectively.

After a few years SiliconSystems was acquired by Western Digital and the PCMCIA cards were discontinued after the acquisition.

It was getting very difficult for maintenance personnel to support their aircraft without these PCMCIA cards.

It is important to mention that with the advent of new technology and new higher capacities small capacity cards such as:

  • 16MB PCMCIA
  • 32MB PCMCIA
  • 64MB PCMCIA

these capacities were no longer produced and available for older equipment as replacement parts.  Older legacy equipment could not recognize newer larger capacity cards due to the limitation in the BIOS.

Recognizing this elimination in supply of smaller capacity PCMCIA Type II ATA PC cards, PCcardsDirect began to offer the a full line of PCMCIA cards from 16MB to 64GB capacities. See www.PCcardsDirect.com…   for a complete list of available PCMCIA cards on the market today and available for purchase.

Where to find SLC flash memory and support

16GB PCMCIA Card

16GB SSD-P PCMCIA Card

As many traditional suppliers are transitioning to MLC flash from SLC flash memory how can you be sure you are getting industrial grade flash memory products?

Consider this before buying any SLC flash memory:

NOT ALL FLASH MEMORY IS CREATED EQUAL

Though MLC flash memory may be more cost effective to you it is not more reliable that SLC manufactured memory.  SLC flash memory includes advanced wear leveling algorithms for better durability and longevity.

Industrial flash cards are temperature rated at -40C to +85C  operating temperature.  Additional specifications include shock ratings of 1500G and vibration tested to 20G.

Companies looking to replace older flash memory such as Sandisk, Kingston or SiliconSystems, will need to consider the proper level of support in addition to the correct flash hardware component.

Older cards having used the latest chips and BIOS of their time will be difficult to replace.  Transitioning to a newer chipset with a new BIOS capable of addressing larger capacities will allow for the transition of legacy hardware to available flash products on the market today.

The search engines will return a plethora of potential hardware suppliers.  However you must consider the post support available after you have purchased.  Pre & Post support are critical to a smooth transition of hardware components.

One such partner to consider is www.SSDsDirect.com….  Armed with a new interactive website, product reviews, comments and questions related to SLC flash memory offers you the level of support you need to determine the right amount of support needed to complete you project in a successful and timely manner.

Ask your supplier is they offer samples and offer post technical support on the product as it relates to your installation.  With you over 15 years of flash memory experience www.PCcardsDirect.com… and its affiliates offers a high level of support no available to most online e-Tail, retail and VAR.

8MB PCMCIA Card

Sandisk 8MB PCMCIA

Are you looking for old Sandisk PCMCIA cards?  This can be one of the most frustrating jobs.  As a manufacturer of industrial flash we still receive requests for the old Sandisk SDP3BI cards.  These PCMCIA cards offer by Sandisk in the late 90s and early 2000 was a very popular standard for software engineers to base their designs around.

The Sandisk 8MB PCMCIA card was one of the first cards used in industrial systems.  Legacy equipment today still requires this card due to the unique controller used in production.  Due to the high cost of reprogramming and tooling involved to adapt this equipment to the new BIOS in modern PCMCIA cards, older Sandisk PCMCIA cards are the only option.

For this reason we have located stock on the following Sandisk PCMCIA cards no longer available:

Sandisk 8MB PCMCIA Card

Sandisk 10MB PCMCIA Card

Sandisk 48MB PCMCIA Card

Sandisk 110MB PCMCIA Card

Sandisk 220MB PCMCIA Card

Sandisk 1.2G PCMCIA Card

Many integrators and system builders have come across this same situation where only a very specific hardware product is compliant with the host system.  For this reason specific legacy memory cards such as the Sandisk PCMCIA cards still are in demand in the market today.  You may visit www.pccardsdirect.com… for a list of available cards.

PCMCIA Memory What to know before you buy

Before microSD, SD, MMC and Compact Flash the removable flash standard was PCMCIA cards.  All laptops came equipment with a PCMCIA slot to accept a PCMCIA ATA type II card.

Still used today by the military and industrial equipment PCMCIA cards are available in different builds, know the difference before you buy.

Like other types of flash memory, PCMCIA cards are available in both MLC and SLC chipsets.  those unfamiliar with these standards, the most may be familiar is MLC (Multi Level Cell).  Cards built using this method are typically consumer grade and hold a temperature rating of 0C to +70C.

PCMCIA Cards built with SLC chipset are rated at -40C to +85C and typically include some type of error correction and or wear leveling technology as well.

So depending on your environment you will want to choose the appropriate card for your equipment’s needs.

In addition to the temperature and wear leveling technology PCMCIA cards are available in a plastic and metal housing.  In a majority of the cases the plastic housings are more affordable and readily available.  The metal housing cards have a longer lead time and are more rigid.  The specifications such as temperature, vibration and shock are rated the same for both housings.

One additional option that is not usually mentioned are the coatings that may be applied to the components on the cards.  One type is acrylic and the other is silicon based.  Both are used when additional vibration and shock ratings are needed in order for the cards to meet certain specifications.  Keep in mind that when ordering these cards you will void the warranty as no warranty repairs can be performed on the cards after these coatings have been applied.

Sandisk and Sewing Machines more in common than you think

Sandisk the leading producer of flash memory also lends a hand to the textile industry.  Many large textile machines have used the Sandisk SDP3BI-16-201-80, 16MB PCMCIA PC Card as storage on industrial textile machines.  Large textile producers in Italy have long used these cards to store and transfer data to and from their equipment.  These industrial rated industrial temperature cards proved to be exceptional work horses.  However, these 16MB 16bit PCMCIA cards are no longer available.  Sandisk discontinued production of these cards some seven years ago, in shift to move in to the retail consumer market.  Sandisk changed their focus from industrial products to retail consumer products.  As can be seen in your local Costco with the pallets and pallets of USB drives offered in bulk.

As production shifted to consumer goods industrial users of these cards where left with a hole in their supply chain.  As today’s new laptops no longer offers a PCMCIA slot, so too has the PCMCIA cards fallen out of  favor with manufactures such as SiliconSystems, Western Digital, and Kingston.  If you are looking to support aircraft, industrial equipment too expensive to upgrade to more traditional SD or Compact Flash cards, consider evaluating the PCMCIA ATA PC Card by PCcardsDirect.  Offering capacities starting at 16MB, PCDATA16MBI, this cards is industrial shock, vibration rated and temperature tested to -40C to +85C.  View the complete offering of Industrial PCMCIA Cards at .
