Technical Specifications

ADM5 - ATA Disk Module 40 Pin / 180 Degree Rev 1.2 Data Sheet ADM5 - ATA Disk Module 44 Pin / 180 Degree Rev 1.4 Data Sheet


The ADM Module is easily plugged into a standard IDE 40 or 44-pin connector commonly found in desktops, set-top boxes, industrial PC and thin client systems. Fortasa's ADM contains an ATA/IDE Flash Controller and custom file management firmware that communicates directly with the host side ATA standard interface emulating a Hard Disk Drive. Considering the rapid decline of the Flash memory cost, the ADM is a most cost effective replacement of the legacy ATA/IDE HDDs.

This product is well suited for embedded flash storage applications offering new and expanded functionality as well as more cost-effective designs, better performance and increased reliability. Fortasa offers ATA Disk Modules that utilize highly reliable SLC and cost effective MLC NAND Flash. The ADMs are also offered in a variety of physical sizes and form factors.
