256GB mSATA

Utility SSD mSATA SATA III

 

The SATA interface has been enormously popular since its debut in 2003. Since then, it has gone through a series of redesigns to keep up with changing device sizes and structures. The mSATA interface was one of these reiterations of the original SATA design. It debuted in 2009 and has since been used in countless devices. The 256GB mSATA size offers high capacity with the reliable, familiar SATA interface. Despite its large capacity, the 256GB mSATA is available with some industrial grade features.

 

mSATA Basics

mSATA stands for mini-SATA. It is smaller than a full-size SATA SSD, coming in at about the size of a business card. This makes it compatible with devices in which space is confined, such as a laptop or a tablet. The drive still features the SATA interface, with the full design specifications determined by the Serial ATA International Organization, or SATA-IO. Like SATA, mSATA is compatible with devices that have power constraints in industrial, commercial, and consumer applications.

 

256GB mSATA

Many people who are looking for an mSATA drive find themselves weighing the need for high capacity with the need for industrial grade functionality. A 256GB mSATA drive can provide both. This utility grade drive features MLC, or multilevel cell, flash, which means that it stores two bits of data per cell. This is in contrast to industrial grade devices that feature SLC flash, in which one bit of data is stored per cell. The increased storage in each cell of MLC flash means that an MLC drive can have a larger capacity than an SLC drive. Some industrial customers are hesitant to use MLC flash because of their need for features like an extended temperature range and a locked BOM. However, with a utility 256GB mSATA drive, you get these industrial features, plus the MLC flash you need for greater capacity.
