  • WD SiliconDrive A100 mSATA Industrial 16GB

Fast sequential data transfer.

Sustained sequential data rates of up to 120 MB/s.

Best-in-class reliability.

These drives have been engineered to have the highest reliability for mission-critical applications in extreme environments.

High tolerance to shock and vibration.

With no moving parts, these SSDs deliver maximum tolerance for drops, shock
and vibration.


With patented technology deployed in thousands of OEM applications globally, PowerArmor is field-proven to eliminate the number one cause of storage system field failures—drive corruption from an ungraceful power-down, brownout, power spike or unstable voltage level.
(7150 models only)
Advanced wear-leveling.
Lengthens drive life and preserves drive speed with a combination of dynamic and static wear-leveling algorithms designed to overcome performance degradation issues occurring in traditional SSDs that result from continual
heavy use.
Advanced error correction.
Enables error free data transmission by deploying advanced error correction technologies to detect and correct errors resulting from signal noise or other kinds of interference that cause data distortion.
Data integrity protection.
Protects against bit flips and data corruption from read disturb issues intrinsic to
NAND media.
ATA SMART commands.
Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technologies (SMART) detect and warn when the drive needs replacement.
Runs ATA-8 security feature sets and Secure Erase to protect sensitive data.
Ideal for.
CF replacement, networking and communication equipment, high-end embedded customers, some multimedia servers, power-constrained data centers and database transaction processing.
5-year limited warranty.
