Apacer Industrial Grade ADC3G PIO Mode Disk on Chip, Extended Temp.
Apacer ATA-Disk Chip (ADC) is a high performance, embedded flash memory data storage system.
This product is designed for embedded flash storage applications with expanded functionality and is a
cost effective replacement for a conventional IDE hard disk drive. ADC supports standard ATA/IDE
protocol with up to PIO Mode-4 and Multiword DMA Mode-2 interfaces and has a built-in micro-controller
and file management firmware that communicates with ATA standard interfaces; therefore, ADC does not
require additional or proprietary host software such as Flash File System (FFS) and Memory Technology
Driver (MTD) software. ADC is designed to work at either 3 or 5 Volts and use a standard ATA driver that
is part of all major operating systems such as Microsoft’s Windows series, Apple’s MAC OS family, and
Every ADC comes with a factory-programmed, 20-byte long identification number that protects data from
unauthorized duplication. The ID number can be used as an encryption key. Every ADC is packaged in a
600 mil 32-pin DIP package for easy and cost effective mounting to a system motherboard. In addition,
every ADC offers users selectable Master/Slave operation through an external setting.
Featuring technologies as Global Wear-leveling algorithms, Built-In Hardware ECC, Enhanced Data
Integrity, Intelligent Power Failure Recovery, and ATA Secure Erase, Apacer ADC assures users of a
versatile device on data storage.
