Exploring the SATA 2.0 SSD

S330-225-SATA-SSD

 

Serial ATA, more commonly known as SATA, is a popular interface used in both hard disk drives (HDDs) and solid state drives (SSDs). SATA 2 SSDs are solid state drives that use the SATA 2.0 revision. Though SATA 2.0 is not the newest version of the SATA interface, it is still used as a legacy product in a large number of commercial and industrial applications. Here is a closer look at SATA 2 SSDs and what to expect from them.

 

SATA 2

SATA 2.0 is the second revision of SATA. This second-generation product features an interface that runs at 3 Gb/s and has a bandwidth throughput of up to 300 MB/s. SATA 2 specs are also backwards compatible with SATA 1 ports. However, the port will prevent SATA 2 devices from reaching their top possible speeds. As with all SATA interfaces, SATA 2 is designed with strict specifications set by the Serial ATA International Organization, or SATA-IO. These specifications ensure that any SATA 2 interface will work the same way, regardless of the manufacturer.

 

SATA 2 SSD

SATA 2 SSDs combine the benefits of the SATA interface with the advantages of solid state drives. SSDs have replaced HDDs in most applications because they are less prone to mechanical failures, since they don’t have any moving parts. They are also faster than HDDs, since they don’t have mechanical parts that have to fire into action for every program and erase cycle. Combining these benefits with the far-reaching compatibility of the interface makes SATA 2 SSDs—and all SSDs designed with SATA—popular for a wide range of uses.

 

You can find SATA 2 SSDs in both commercial and industrial applications. Industrial devices that use SATA SSDs are usually designed with SLC, or single-level cell, NAND flash memory. This kind of flash memory is considered to be the most reliable available. It is also the fastest and can tolerate extended temperature ranges and extreme levels of shock and vibration, which are common in industrial environments.
