Examining the Benefits of SSD mSATA

UTILITY mSATA SSD

 

Solid state drives, or SSDs, are more reliable than their hard disk drive, or HDD, counterparts. In addition, they typically offer a longer lifespan. SSDs with mSATA interfaces adhere to the design specifications set out by the Serial ATA organization. Because SATA is such a familiar and widely used interface, mSATA SSDs are easily compatible with a variety of device designs. As such, they are extremely popular with device designers and OEMs. Although mSATA is not the only interface available with SSDs, there are several advantages to choosing an mSATA SSD. Here is a closer look at the some of the advantages of SSD mSATA options that lead designers to choose them time and again.

 

mSATA SSDs are ideal for small devices.

If there is one consistent pressure on designers, it is to create devices that are increasingly small in size. Although reducing the size of a device is desirable, losing power or capacity is not. Industrial mSATA SSDs solve this problem. They provide a fully functional storage solution that is small enough in size to fit in devices with constrained spaces. mSATA—or mini SATA—is the smallest available form of the SATA interface. It is ideal for small form factor applications, including laptops, netbooks, and other mobile devices.

 

The SATA interface follows strict standards.

Every SATA device is designed according to standards set by the SATA-IO, or the Serial ATA International Organization. This means that when you use an mSATA SSD, you can be confident that the specifications will be exactly as expected, no matter what manufacturer you get it from. This reduces concerns about continued compatibility across devices, which is particularly important in the case of industrial applications. After all, any unanticipated failure of an industrial application can cause costly disruptions in the field and even be dangerous.

 

mSATA SSDs are available with industrial grade flash.

For designers and OEMs of industrial devices, having an SSD that is industrial grade is essential. With an industrial mSATA SSD, SLC flash memory is the standard. With this kind of flash, one bit of data is stored per cell. This kind of flash is the fastest and most reliable form available. It is able to tolerate industrial operating conditions in which temperature extremes and high levels of shock and vibration are common.
