Apacer's SATA-Disk Module (SDM) is a high-performance, embedded SSD designed to replace the conventional SATA hard disk drive. SDM SSD can be plugged into a standard Serial ATA 7-pin connector commonly found in desktops, IT-STB, industrial PC and thin client systems. Moreover, Apacer provides an innovative way for design-in customers to strengthen the vibration-resistance between SDM and mainboard. Apacer's SDM SSD has a built-in microcontroller with file management firmware that communicates with SATA standard interface. This means SDM SSD does not require additional or proprietary host software such as Flash File System (FFS) and Memory Technology Driver (MTD). This product is well suited for embedded flash storage applications offering expanded functionalities as well as more cost effective designs, better performance and increased reliability. SDM Series uses a standard SATA driver that complies with major operating systems such as Microsoft's Windows series. Featuring technologies as Advanced Wear-leveling algorithms, S.M.A.R.T, Enhanced Data Integrity, Intelligent Power Failure Recovery, and Quick Erase, Apacer assures users of a versatile device on data storage.
