The PMC243 family of embedded disk modules offers a totally new, high performance, low cost option for file system and boot storage. Combining high performance controllers developed for high end workstations with disk technology used in laptops, the PMC243 embedded disk module delivers very high data rates in a compact form factor implemented with components designed for physically demanding environments.
