Foremay Launches SSD Disk on Chip

The OC177 DOC disk- on-chip solid state drive has a stunningly compact size - less than the size of a U.S. quarter coin - but with capacities up to 32GB or 64GB with a standard IDE or SATA host interface.

Foremay has today introduced its first disk-on-chip solid state hard drive into its OC177 SSD product family offering. The chip disk is a NAND drive that features a tiny dimension of only 22 x 22 x 1.8 mm. The thin and light, yet robust disk chip is marketed as DOC. DOC supports standard IDE or SATA host interface, and complies with ATA-7 specifications. Current shipping capacity is up to 32GB with a read/write speed up to 70/40 MB/s. 64GB capacity is expected in Q3'2011.

The DOC chip disk is designed for high reliability and rugged embedded computing applications where ultra-compact, ultra-low profile, ultra-high anti-shock and/or ultra-high anti-vibration capability are required. Applications for DOC include:

- Embedded computers and industrial PCs
- Military, defense and aerospace applications
- Rugged laptops and handheld computing machines
- Slim laptops and notebook computers
- MID / Camcorders
- UMPC and netbooks
- GPS navigators
- PMP and gaming consoles
- POS terminals
- Handheld and mobile devices
