Unstable power sources are a common challenge for devices in remote and extreme environments. This can severely affect solid state drive (SSD) operation. Instability during start-up and shutdown can cause system crashes and restarting issues.

Hardware-based preventive features will protect the SSD from unstable voltage levels. Extending the ramp- up time during startup will ensure that the voltage has stabilized before allowing the SSD to switch on. After system shutdown or during a quick restart, there is often residual voltage that can cause issues. This is mitigated by tweaking the hardware to only allow startup after the voltage has been lowered.

By incorporating these two hardware functions the SSD is protected both during start-up and shutdown.
