EBC-3410 single board computer and HDD

Discussion in 'Embedded' started by Alexander Baranov, Oct 20, 2003.

  1. Hello.
    I bought EBC-3410 to install Linux on it. After installation all
    necessary periphery, including old 2GB HDD I installed Debian. It
    worked two days and after that HDD failed. Diagnostics said, that it
    had been totally damaged.
    I replaced it by new 40GB Maxtore, bought "Red Hat" for $50 and
    continued my studies. After several attempts the installation program
    told me that my HDD is bad. I installed it to another computer, ran
    MAXTORE disk diagnostic utility and discovered that the HDD is
    nonrecoverable. I reread the EBC-3410 datasheet, but did not find any
    warnings or special instructions about HDDs.
    Did anybody have such a problem?
    Can it be so that the SBC somehow spoils HDDs?
    Maybe I missed something in the datasheet?
    Thanks, Alex

  2. Hello Alexander,
    I've performed extensive testing on this board, including 72-hour burnin
    process with frequent HDD read and write activity. I would suspect power
    supply issues as a first most likely candidate for your problem. It should
    not be possible, anyway, for commands from the board to damage the hard
