Characteristics of 128GB mSATA

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

 

The 128GB mSATA SSD is a popular storage choice for a variety of applications. From automation to medical systems and transportation, 128GB mSATA SSDs offer the speed, security, and reliability industrial applications require in a small form factor. If you’re considering mSATA for your application, this information about the 128GB mSATA drive will help you make the right choice.

 

mSATA Design

Like full-size SATA SSDs, mSATA SSDs conform to the design specifications set by the Serial ATA International Organization, or SATA-IO. This version of the popular SATA interface was created to meet the demand for reliable, SSD-based storage in increasingly small devices. While the original SATA interface is usually too large for things like tablets and laptops, mSATA, which is approximately the size of a business card, fits these applications well. Although mSATA was created for space-constrained devices, it is now also used in some larger applications, such as printers and point-of-sale devices.

 

MLC Flash Technology

Although mSATA SSDs are available with SLC technology, the 128GB mSATA is designed with MLC technology. MLC stands for multi-level cell and refers to flash storage in which two bits of data are stored on each cell. Having more than one bit of data per cell allows mSATA SSDs to reach high capacities, like 128GB, within the limited space of the design. Delkin’s MLC 128GB mSATA drives come with the same extended temperature ranges that you would expect from industrial grade products. This means that you can get the combination of small size, security, and capacity you need for industrial applications that handle critical data. These drives are also JEDEC MO-300B form factor compliant, as well as RoHS compliant.

 

Unlike some other MLC-based flash storage devices, the 128GB mSATA from Delkin also features a locked BOM. With this feature, no component of the design will be changed without advanced notice to customers and without a new product number, so that failures in the field can be avoided.
