SILICONDRIVE PC CARD
SSD-PXXX(I)-3100
OVERVIEW
FEATURES
The SiliconDrive PC Card is an optimal
time-to-market replacement for hard
drives and flash cards or in host systems
that require low power and scalable
storage solutions.
• Integrated PowerArmor and SiSMART
technologies
• Capacity range: 32MB to 16GB
• Supports both 8-bit and 16-bit data
register transfers
• Supports dual-voltage 3.3V or 5V
interface
SiliconDrive technology is engineered
exclusively for the high performance, high
reliability, and multiyear product lifecycle
requirements of the Enterprise System
OEM
market.
Typical
end-market
applications include broadband data and
voice networks, military systems, flight
system avionics, medical equipment,
industrial
control
systems,
video
surveillance, storage networking, VoIP,
wireless infrastructure, and interactive
kiosks.
Every SiliconDrive is integrated with
SiliconSystems’ patented PowerArmor
and
patent-pending
SiSMART
technologies to virtually eliminate storage
systems failures.
PowerArmor prevents data corruption and
loss from power disturbances by
integrating patented technology into every
SiliconDrive.
Data reliability <1 error in 1014 bits read
MTBF 4,000,000 hours
ATA-3 compliant
Industry standard Type II PC Card form
factor
• RoHS 5 of 6 compliant
• Supports PIO modes 0-4 and DMA
modes 0-2
•
•
•
•
16GB
SSD-P16G(I)-3100
SiSMART acts as an early warning system
to eliminate unscheduled downtime by
constantly monitoring and reporting the
exact amount of remaining storage system
useful life.
Numerous SiliconSystems’ patented and
patent-pending
application-specific
technologies can be integrated into
SiliconDrive to safeguard application data
and software IP. Application notes
detailing these performance-enhancing
options are available under NDA.

* There are unlimited read cycles. Service life is determined using
SiliconSystems’ LifeEst calculation at 100% duty cycle with 25% write cycles.
LifeEst is a comprehensive measurement that considers numerous factors to
determine the projected life span of a SiliconDrive. A white paper that
describes the benefits of LifeEst and how to calculate it can be found at http://
www.siliconsystems.com/resources/Documents/Whitepaper/
SiliconSystems_NAND_Evolution.pdf.
The actual life of a SiliconDrive is dependant on the customer usage model.
SiSMART is a patented technology of SiliconSystems that enables host
systems to monitor actual usage of a SiliconDrive in real time. SiSMART
measures and reports the remaining life of a SiliconDrive. For more
information on SiSMART, refer to the Eliminating Unscheduled Downtime by
Forecasting Useable Life white paper at http://www.siliconsystems.com/

In the true IDE mode, this input/output
is the Pass Diagnostic signal in the
Master/Slave handshake protocol.

In true IDE mode, this signal is used
for DMA transfers between the host
and device. DMARQ is asserted by
the device when the device is ready to
transfer data to/from the host. The
direction of data transfer is controlled
by -IORD and -IOWR. This signal is
used in a handshake manner with
-DMACK (i.e., the device waits until
the host asserts -DMACK before
negating DMARQ, and reasserts
DMARQ if there is more data to
transfer). The DMARQ/-DMACK
handshake is used to provide flow
control during the transfer.
These lines carry the data,
commands, and status information
between the host and the controller.
• D00 is the LSB of the word’s even
byte.
• D08 is the LSB of the word’s odd
byte.
This signal is the same as the PC

In true IDE mode, all Task File
operations occur in byte mode on the
low-order bus D00-D07, while all data
transfers are 16 bits using D00-D15.

In memory mode, this signal is:

is ready to accept a new data
transfer operation.
• Held low when the card is busy.
The host memory card socket must
provide a pull-up resistor.
At power-up and reset, the RDY/-BSY
signal is held low (busy) until the
SiliconDrive CF has completed its
power-up or reset function. No access
of any type should be made to the
SiliconDrive CF during this time. The

-CS0 and -CS1 are not asserted and
transfers are 16-bits wide.
When the pin is high, this signal

SiliconDrive CF is reset only at powerup if this pin is left high or open from
power-up. The SiliconDrive CF is also

ATTRIBUTE MEMORY DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
SSD-PXXX(I)-3100 DATA SHEET
ATTRIBUTE MEMORY DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
The attribute memory plane can be read or written to by asserting the REG#
signal, qualified by the appropriate combination of CE1#, OE#, and WE#. An
attribute memory map describing the type and location of the information
maintained in the attribute memory plane is provided in "Attribute Memory
Map" on page 25.
With respect to SiliconDrive CF, attribute memory consists of two sections:
• Card Information Structure (CIS), which contains a description of the Card’s
capabilities and specifications.
• Function Configuration Registers (FCRs), which consists of four registers,
that can be read or written to by a host to configure the Card for specific
purposes.
ATTRIBUTE MEMORY READ OPERATIONS
Attribute memory read operations are enabled by asserting REG#, OE#, and
CE1# low. Odd byte read operations from the attribute memory plane are not
valid.

CARD INFORMATION STRUCTURE
The CIS is data that describes the SiliconDrive CF, and is described by the
CFA standard. This information can be used by the host system to determine a
number of things about the Card that has been inserted. For information
regarding the exact nature of this data and how to design the host software to
interpret it, refer to the PC Card Standard Metaformat Specification.

ATA AND TRUE IDE REGISTER DECODING
SSD-PXXX(I)-3100 DATA SHEET
ATA AND TRUE IDE REGISTER DECODING
SiliconDrive can be configured as either a a memory-mapped or an an I/O
devices. As noted earlier, communication to and from the drive is
accomplished using the ATA Command Block.
MEMORY-MAPPED REGISTER DECODING
In memory-mapped mode, the SiliconDrive registers are accessed via
standard memory references (i.e., OE# and WE#). The ATA registers are
mapped to common memory space in a 2KB window starting at address 0.
