Douglas Electronics

An industry innovator since its founding more than 40 years ago, Douglas Electronics Inc., based in San Leandro, Calif., was one of the first companies to provide a professional CAD/CAM tool for personal computers. Today, Douglas offers project managers, engineers, and product designers the industry's most complete microcomputer-based electronics design and manufacturing system, offering workstation performance at desktop prices. Douglas also continues to manufacture and stock a broad line of breadboards and other prototyping products including backplanes, card cages, adapter boards, and connector systems, for off-the-shelf solutions to a variety of packaging requirements. Included in this category are some newer specialty items such as the MiniBoard and HandyBoard robotics controller PCBs, and a variety of PC/104 products. We have also developed a disk duplication system, which is Macintosh based, but which copies both Mac and DOS disks efficiently and economically.

Increasing Flash Solid State Disk Reliability - article by SiliconSystems

Solid state disks, based on flash technology, have greatly improved in performance in recent years and now compete head to head with RAM based accelerator systems. Flash also has significant advatanges in servers compared to RAM SSDs due to low power consumption.

But if you think that all solid state disks which use flash are equally reliable and enduring then think again.

That's a bit like saying that a Mercedes 300SL sports coupe is as tough as a Tiger tank because both were made in Germany and both are built out of metal. But as Oddball (Donald Sutherland) says in the movie Kelly's Heroes "I ain't messing with no Tigers."

This article by SiliconSystems, shows how their patented architecture cleverly manages the wear out mechanisms inherent in all flash media to deliver a disk lifetime that is about 4 times greater than of other enterprise flash products and upto 100 times greater than intrinsic flash memory. the article, ...SiliconSystems profile, Solid state disks
