Features of 128GB mSATA

Delkin Devices mSATA

 

If you need a solid state drive (SSD) with a small form factor, then mSATA could be the solution for you. This mini version of the popular SATA SSD is designed for use in devices in which space is at a premium, such as netbooks and tablets. With a 128GB mSATA, you don’t have to compromise storage capacity simply because you need a smaller form factor. Instead, mSATA meets the growing need for large amounts of storage in ever-smaller devices. The 128GB mSATA is an example of this idea in action. Could this kind of mSATA be right for your device? Here is a closer look at some of the features.

 

NAND Flash Technology

NAND flash is one of the features that makes SSDs so popular. Flash memory allows data to be stored using electrical charges instead of the spinning disks associated with HDDs, or hard disk drives. With flash, read and write operations are faster, since there is no disk that has to fire up and start moving. The drive itself is also more reliable, since it has no mechanical parts that are prone to failure.

 

mSATA SSDs are available in both SLC and MLC NAND flash formats. SLC refers to single-level cell NAND flash, in which one bit of data is stored per cell. It is used most often in industrial operations that require the most reliable form of storage available. MLC refers to multi-level cell flash technology. With MLC, two bits of data are stored per cell. MLC storage is found in some commercial and utility grade applications. The 128GB mSATA drive from Delkin features MLC flash technology. MLC allows for greater storage capacities than SLC, particularly in small form factor drives such as mSATA.

 

Extended Temperature Ranges

Because 128GB mSATA is a utility grade drive, some people mistakenly assume that it will not feature the same kind of extended temperature range as industrial products. In reality, you can still expect extended temperatures with this form of mSATA.

 

The 128GB mSATA has a temperature range of 0 to 70 degrees C for operating and -40 to 85 degrees C for storage. If you opt for a utility-plus drive, then the operating and storage ranges will be the same.

 

Customization Options

For OEMs, a variety of customization options are available with mSATA drives from Delkin. This includes customization with labels, serialization, and image loading. Specialized testing is also available to ensure that you get a drive that works exactly as you need it to.
