With the 3rd generation of SiliconDrive SLC flash drives SiliconSystems™ carries on its track record of SiliconDrive™ and SiliconDrive II™. SiliconSystems™ expands the product portfolio with the product line SiliconDrive III™ on industrial-suited SSD with SATA (3 GBits/s) and PATA (ATA6/Ultra100) interfaces with a form factor of 1.8" and 2.5".

SiliconSystems SiliconDrive III™ Solid State Drives are perfect drop-in replacements for hard drives for data processing centers, blade servers and in industrial and embedded systems, where forward-looking and reliable high performance storage solutions are required. The high transfer rates and capacities of SiliconDrive III also enable an operation for new multimedia applications with high data volume. Digital streaming applications such as Video on Demand (VOD), IPTV (Internet Protocol Television) and digital monitoring and control systems benefit from the high reliability and the long lifetime of SiliconDrive III™ flash storage solutions.

Faster data transfer

The transfer speed of SiliconDrive III™ SSD in comparison to SiliconDrive II™ has a rate of increase of 3 to 4 times. A SiliconDrive III™ SSD attains a reading speed of up to 100 MBytes/s and a writing speed up to 80 MBytes/s.


The SiliconDrive III™ with a 2.5" form factor is available with capacities of 30, 60, 90 and 120 GBytes and with a 1.8" form factor in capacities of 30 and 60 GB.

SiliconSystems patented Wear-Leveling algorithm writes the data evenly on the entire SiliconDrive II. Single memory cells thereby do not wear out prematurely and the possible drive life is maximised.

The PowerArmor technology prevents destruction of memory cells and data loss if the power supply fails when writing data. PowerArmor prevents from the number one cause of field failures.

SiSMART technology monitors the write/erase cycles of the flash cells in the cards and drives. This way it is possible to predict the remaining life span of the products and to plan the future usage.
