'[EE] Solid State Disk'

Looking for vendors for a solid state disk drive. Ideally 44 pin
laptop IDE interface.
1-2G.  M-Systems is NOT ok, they tell me that they are EOLing their
products, and going to USB interface, which will not work for me.

Any leads?

Would a compact flash do the trick? There are plenty of sources for these
commodity cards.

cheers.

Possibly, if I can find a suitable interface. I'm very space-constrained.

Hmm, the compact flash has an on-card IDE controller and it can work like a
harddrive device.

Right, I've used CF this way, but haven't found a suitably small adaptor.

A 44pin-CF adapter:

and any CF flash card?

The key, as I mentioned, would be finding one that isn't enormous.
The header on this one is the wrong sex and 90 degrees off what I
need, but that's fixable. It's enormous though, and that's more
difficult to fix.

This one is shorter. Almost as small as you can make it and still fit the connectors.

Then what about making your own board? It's straight pin-pin connectors,
you can easily fab a board to whatever size you'd like.

This type of adapter is the same size of a laptop drive, so if you
really need something smaller making your own board seems the quickest
solution.

AFAIK CF is a subset of PCMCIA/Cardbus which is a subset of IDE and
it's just wiring all the way so depending on whether you want 1 or N
you could hand create one as small as you wish.
