2.5" PATA Solid State Drives
Does your old laptop need a boost in speed and performance? MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof Parallel ATA (PATA) solid state drive upgrades rest their reputation on increasing speed and performance over traditional spinning hard drives (HDDs).
Supporting Windows, Linux, and Mac operating systems, MyDigitalSSD drives are an affordable upgrade solution for your existing laptop notebook or desktop PC and the perfect reason to invest in a new drive rather than a brand new computer.
Note: Solid State Drives DO NOT require defragmentation. It may
decrease the lifespan of the drive.
MyDigitalSSD Bullet Proof 44-Pin PATA IDE 2.5" Solid State Drive
MyDigitalSSD 2.5" PATA IDE Solid State Disks (SSD) are non-volatile, solid state data storage systems, and have become a popular storage media solution, compared to conventional Hard Disk Drive (HDD). Due to lack of any mechanical components, SSDs provides a more robust and cost effective storage solution for any embedded application. Since SSDs comes with a standard ATA interface which is fully compatible with traditional
hard drive bays, designers will find 2.5" PATA SSDs as an easy solution for integration in PC-based systems.

Advanced NAND Flash Controller
MyDigitalSSD's NAND Flash Control Technology, includes Bad Block Management
Leveling Algorithm and Error Detection / Correction Code (EDC/ECC)
Bad Block Management
Bad blocks are blocks that contain one or more invalid bits of which the
reliability is not guaranteed. Bad blocks may be representing when flash is shipped and may developed
during life time of the device.
MyDigitalSSD implement a efficient bad block management algorithm to detect the
factory produced bad blocks and manages any bad blocks that may develop over the life time of the
device. This process is completely transparent to the user, user will not aware of the existence of
the bad blocks during operation.
NAND Type flash have individually erasable blocks, each of which can be put
through a finite number of erase cycles before becoming unreliable. It means after certain
cycles for any given block, errors can be occurred in a much higher rate compared with typical
situation. Unfortunately, in the most of cases, the flash media will not been used evenly. For certain area,
like file system, the data gets updated much frequently than other area. Flash media will rapidly wear
out in place without any rotation.
Wear leveling attempts to work around these limitations by arranging data so
that erasures and re-writes are distributed evenly across the full medium. In this way, no
single sector prematurely fails due to a high concentration of program/erase cycles. MyDigitalSSD provides advanced wear leveling algorithm, which can efficiently
spread out the flash usage through the whole flash media area. By implement both dynamic and static
wear leveling algorithms, the life expectancy of the flash media can be improved significantly.
Error Detection / Correction
MyDigitalSSD drives utilize a BCH ECC algorithm which offers one of the most powerful ECC
algorithms in the industry. This algorithm can correct up to 48 random bits per 2K-byte area.
In general, industrial applications require a more reliable flash media that can
withstand any rigorous environment. A sophisticated product management system that can provide
product traceability and failure analysis system becomes important and crucial. With the
implementation of S.M.A.R.T., MyDigitalSSD's flash products can be easily analyzed for product status
