A Look at the Benefits of MO-300 Industrial Storage

MO-300 industrial flash storage—more commonly known as mSATA—is a popular option in applications that require powerful storage in a small space. MO-300 industrial storage is specifically made for applications that have unique operating demands, such as the need to work in rugged conditions or handle sensitive data. The fact that mSATA brings the ever-popular SATA interface into a smaller form factor makes it all the more appealing for many developers. In industrial applications, you can find mSATA doing everything from storing data to running apps and operating systems. Here are some of the benefits of MO-300 industrial storage that lead many developers to rely on mSATA.

 

Small Form Factor

The small size of mSATA is the attraction for many people. The “m” in mSATA stands for mini, and it is small enough to fit into very limited real estate while still providing powerful storage. MO-300 storage measures 50.8mm x 29.85mm, which is why its commercial version is so popular in thin devices like notebook computers. For industrial storage needs, it provides an unbeatable combination of small size with large capacity and great reliability.

 

JEDEC and SATA-IO Specs

MO-300 industrial storage devices are designed according to the MO-300 standards created by JEDEC. These standards guide the dimensions, connector positions, and layout of all MO-300 storage devices. These specs help to ensure that all MO-300 industrial storage devices are the same no matter who the manufacturer is, which helps to resolve questions of compatibility. JEDEC worked closely with SATA-IO, the organization behind the SATA interface, in creating the MO-300 guidelines, so developers get the confidence of device compatibility with high standards of design from two leading solid state drive storage organizations.

 

SLC NAND Flash

Industrial MO-300 storage uses SLC NAND flash. With SLC—or single-level cell—storage, each cell stores one bit of data. For industrial applications, SLC is the gold standard, since it minimizes the risk of data loss due to power failure or corruption caused by cell cross talk or read and write errors. SLC NAND flash also offers the fastest speeds for reading and writing, since the single bit of data can be stored quickly without the need for multiple voltages to be activated.

 

At Delkin, our MO-300 industrial storage mSATA devices meet JEDEC and SATA-IO guidelines and are operable in extreme temperatures and conditions with high levels of shock and vibration.
