A Look at SATA Embedded SSDs

Industrial M.2 SSD

 

SATA Embedded SSDs are components that operate inside a larger system to perform a specific role. SSDs, or solid state drives, are used for data storage inside these larger systems. As opposed to hard disk drives, or HDDs, which use a rotating, magnetic disk for data storage, SSDs use flash technology. This is a non-volatile form of storage that doesn’t have any moving parts, making it well suited to industrial applications that have to operate in environments with extreme temperatures and intense amounts of shock and vibration. SATA is a popular interface for embedded SSDs and can be a found in a wide range of applications. SATA embedded SSDs are available with both MLC and SLC flash technology, making them a great fit for both industrial and commercial devices. This look at SATA embedded SSDs will help you decide if this design is right for your application.

 

SATA Embedded SSD Features

SATA embedded SSDs all use the interface designed by the Serial ATA International Organization, or SATA-IO. This group sets the design standards for SATA devices, ensuring that they have the same basic features and designs. This allows for broad compatibility, regardless of the manufacturer. SATA embedded SSDs are popular for systems that need the reliability of SATA technology, whether the device is being used to store critical data or functioning as a boot drive.

 

SATA SSDs come in a few sizes, including the mSATA SSD, which is small enough to provide even slim designs like netbooks with a reliable storage option. There have been multiple versions of the SATA interface released by SATA-IO, but the designs are backwards compatible, so there are no issues for users.

 

Industrial SATA Embedded SSDs

SATA embedded SSDs are available for both the consumer and industrial markets. Industrial versions of embedded SSDs bring features that are advantageous to users with applications in critical, high-demand fields, such as healthcare, energy, and automation. With an industrial SATA embedded SSD, you can count on a high storage capacity and data storage that will not be impacted by extreme temperatures or temperature fluctuations, vibration, or shock. Industrial grade SSDs also have SLC flash technology, which means the risk of data loss is drastically minimized.

 

Industrial SATA embedded SSDs have controlled bills of materials. This means that none of the components that are critical to operation or compatibility will be changed unless a new product number is issued.
