Answering Questions about 32GB mSATA

 

mSATA SSDs are a form of solid state drive (SSD) that follows the design specifications created by the SATA International Organization (SATA-IO). This version of the wildly popular SATA SSD interface is smaller in size, so that it can be used in devices which do not have the space for a full-size SSD and for which engineers and OEMs wish to reap the benefits of SATA technology. At about the size of a business card, mSATA can be found in everything from tablets to digital signage. A 32GB mSATA features 32GB of capacity and can be obtained with SLC flash storage for the ultimate reliability. These answers to common questions about 32GB mSATA SSDs can help you determine if this is the right choice for your application.

 

When should 32GB mSATA be used?

32GB mSATA is ideal for a number of different applications that require a small form factor SSD with low power consumption and reliable data storage. In the consumer market, mSATA SSDs can be found in laptops, netbooks, tablets, retail kiosks, and printers. In the 32GB format, many mSATA SSDs are industrial grade, which means that they are appropriate for use in industrial applications, including medical devices, digital signage, and automation systems.

 

The industrial grade 32GB mSATA has several features that users expect in industrial devices. These include tolerance of extended temperature ranges, resistance to high levels of shock and vibration, wear leveling, and fast operating speeds.

 

Is testing available for OEMs who are considering 32GB mSATA?

Testing can be an important part of finding the best SSD for your application. When it comes to testing, be sure to consider both reliability and validity. Reliability can be assessed by determining if the results of testing can be repeated. Validity refers to the ability of the testing to adequately assess and measure what it needs to. When choosing a flash storage device, both of these factors matter. Test results should only be considered to be reliable when they can be replicated more than once. Keep in mind that the test results are not instructive if the testing method is not valid.

 

At Delkin, since we design and manufacture products in our facility, we are able to provide testing that meets the criteria of both reliability and validity. We’re able to repeat tests in our facility and to create conditions that mimic those in your application, so that the results are not just reliable, but also valid for the kind of use you are planning.
