The 256Mb disk on module (DOM) is a flash drive with a 40 pin IDE/Standard ATA Interface to be used as a computer hard disk drive (HDD). The flash-to-IDE converter simulates a harddisk, and therefore the modules can be used without additional software or drivers. This is good for embedded computing systems where they can often be deployed into very harsh environments (where mechanical hard disk drives would simply fail), or in a thin client because of small size, low power consumption and silent operation.
This DOM is highly reliable as it does not have any moving parts like regular hard disks and is small in size and light in weight. However there is no known method to recover lost data from a physically damaged DOM.
