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.
