Answering Questions about mSATA 128GB

ME5HAPX7V-3N000-2 - SATA - mSATA (MO-300B) - 512GB - MLC

 

For industrial applications in fields such as automation, healthcare, and gaming, the mSATA 128GB capacity drive is a common form of storage. There are several advantages to using mSATA, including the reliable design, which is based on specifications set by the Serial ATA International Organization (SATA-IO). Other benefits include the wide-ranging compatibility thanks to the familiar SATA interface and the high capacity offered in a small form factor. If you are considering using a 128GB mSATA in your device, here are the answers to some of the questions that are likely to be on your mind.

 

What is the difference between SATA and mSATA?

SATA and mSATA feature the same interface and offer the same benefits. The difference between these two solid state drives, or SSDs, is size. In general, full-size SATA SSDs are too large for small devices like cellphones, laptops, and other portable items. Since mSATA is only about the size of a business card, it can easily be used in these smaller devices. mSATA SSDs are popular with designers and engineers who want SATA reliability without having to increase the size of their devices.

 

What kind of flash is used with mSATA 128GB drives?

Typically, these kinds of drives feature MLC flash, but they still offer the temperature ranges you would expect from SLC flash. Using MLC flash allows the drive to have a higher capacity. With MLC flash, two bits of data are stored per cell, so the drive can hold more data than SLC flash—which only stores one bit of data per cell—without making the drive larger. With this design, industrial users can get the quality and reliability they expect from industrial grade products, as well as a high capacity. However, if you prefer mSATA with SLC flash, it is also available, but in slightly smaller capacities.

 

Is mSATA 128GB customizable?

When it comes to mSATA SSDs, there are a variety of customization options available from Delkin. These include custom labeling and packaging, additional testing, unique formatting, and conformal coating. If you have specific customization needs, talk to a team member to find out how your design preferences can be accommodated.
