The S.M.A.R.T.function is an acronym for Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, an open standard allowing disk drives to automatically monitor their own health and report potential problems. It protects the user from unscheduled downtime by monitoring and storing critical drive performance and calibration parameters. Ideally, this should allow taking proactive actions to prevent impending drive failure. Apacer’s SMART feature adopts the standard SMART command B0h to read data from the drive. With the Apacer
SMART Utility running on the host, it analyses and reports the disk status to the host before the device is in critical condition.
Apacer’s value-added CFC provides complete PCMCIA – ATA functionality and compatibility. Apacer ‘s CompactFlash technology is designed for applications in Point of Sale (POS) terminals, telecom, IP-STB, medical instruments, surveillance systems, industrial PCs and handheld applications such as the new generation of Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) cameras.
