Homepage Memtech SSD Corporation
The SC3500 is a modular, high performance solid state flash drive in a 3.5 inch halfheight drive format, designed for implementation on systems conforming to the SCSI-2 standard.

Composed of a large array of 1 Gbit NAND E2PROM memories, the SC3500 can emulate the storage and retrieval operations of a standard rotating drive, but with faster access, throughput, ruggedness and reliability.

Rugged, 3.5 half height drive formfactor with single ended 50-pin, 2.54 mm SCSI-2 interface.

Up to 36 GByte uncompressed capacity.

For the following temperature ranges (operating) available:
Commercial (0°C to +70°C)
Extended (–20°C to +75°C)
Industrial (–40°C to +85°C)

Storage temperature (non-operating) from –55°C to +125°C.

Completely solid state – no moving parts.

Active Remap™ for exceptional data reliability.

5 volt, low power operation.

500 G operating shock; 10 G operating vibration.

0.5 millisecond random access time.

2.3 MByte/sec sustained read throughput; 1.0 MByte/sec sustained write throughput.

10 year data integrity.

8 year product warranty.

Exclusive distributor for Germany, Austria and Switzerland is altec ComputerSysteme GmbH.


  EOL – Not available for order.

What are Solid State Disks?

The common feature of all Solid State Disks is that the data is stored on Flash chips. Solid State Disks are insensitive to shock, vibration, temperature effects and extreme air pressure changes and are highly resistant to EMC and ESD.

Solid State Disks do not have sensitive rotating components. They are totally silent in operation and have a low current consumption.

You can write, read and delete the data just like a conventional hard disk. Mechanical hard disks in mobile systems and industrial computers can be replaced by pin-compatible Solid State Disks.


Memtech Solid State Disks

A Wear-Leveling Algorithm is implemented in all drives, as well as the Kicker™ Hold Up Circuit intended to prevent drive destruction if writing is suddenly interrupted.

Every drive is subjected to Memtech’s exacting EnduroTest™ in which each drive is fully tested under environmental and voltage extremes to guarantee data integrity under even the harshest conditions.

Optionally, all products are available with a Security Erase feature and with a Conformal Coating to protect them against moisture.
