The PMC245 family of embedded disk modules offers a high-performance, low cost option for file system and boot storage. The PMC245 has an IDE header in the front to attach low cost IDE disks. It also routes the IDE signals to the J4 connector for the rear I/O. The PMC245 has options for both the popular 44 pins as well as the 40 pins headers for its front panel connector. In addition, card edge PCI systems can be accommodated using our PMC239 adapter for rapid prototype and development.
