Industrial 2.5″ SSD
The 2.5” drive form factor, managed by the SFF-8201 standard and originally named for the size of the rotating disk in the HDD version, remains a popular legacy product due to its mechanical robustness, wide range of available capacities, and ease of integration.
For embedded hosts designed with a 2.5” SATA HDD, replacing with a SSD makes sense for several reasons – flash-based storage is not sensitive to mechanical shock and vibration, has performance advantages, draws less power than a comparable HDD and is noise-less. For embedded applications that do not require high density drives, 2.5” SSD’s are available as low as 16GB, but also up to 2TB for mass storage needs.
With regard to the SATA (an abbreviation for Serial AT Attachment) interface, revision 1.0 was introduced in 2003 with a maximum theoretical data rate of 1.5 Gbits/second. Revision 2.0 followed in 2004 with a transfer rate of 3.0 Gbits/second, and in 2008, Revision 3.0 increased the theoretical performance to 6.0 Gbits/second.
Delkin offers industrial-grade 2.5” SSD’s supporting SATA revision 3.0 (backward compatible to 2.0 / 1.0) in both SLC and MLC flash options – offering endurance and cost options to match the specific needs of any embedded application.
