SiliconSystems SiliconDrive USB Blade

SiliconDrive USB Blade is a postage-stamp sized USB solid-state drive designed for embedded storage applications where board space, shock, vibration, temperature and multi-year product lifecycles are mandatory design considerations.

Historically, many OEM designers have dismissed USB-based storage because they associated the entire product category with the retail-grade thumb drive form factor which does not meet the rigorous requirements of embedded system applications.

The new SiliconDrive includes SiliconSystems' patented PowerArmor, SiSMART and Secure technologies that deliver the high performance, high reliability and multi-year product lifecycles embedded storage applications demand.

  • Integrated PowerArmor, SiSMART, and SiSecure technology
  • Capacity range: 512MB to 4GB
  • MTBF >4,000,000 hours
