Western Digital: Eliminating drive corruption from power disturbances

Middle East: Thursday, August 20 - 2009 @ 15:19

SiliconSystems has integrated PowerArmor technology into all its SiliconDrive technology to virtually eliminate the damage power interruptions can create.

PowerArmor’s voltage detection circuitry alerts the host system of any power fluctuations and prevents the transmission of commands until power levels are normalised.

Address lines are latched to prevent data from being written to the wrong sector.

When power goes out, drives can be corrupted and data ruined, resulting in downtime as drives get reformatted, operating systems reinstalled, or products returned. This directly impacts overall reliability, dependability, customer goodwill, and cost of ownership.

PowerArmor now offers designers a way to virtually eliminate these costly problems.
