Get the Facts about Industrial M.2 SSD Options

Industrial M.2 SSD

 

SSDs have replaced HDDs in terms of popularity in the majority of new device designs for many different reasons. As part of this change, there has been a growing need for faster SSD interfaces. M.2 SSDs solve the challenging problem of combining powerful performance with a small form factor drive. Industrial M.2 SSDs that are specifically designed for use in rugged conditions offer an important solution for devices in which a drive with a high degree of reliability, tolerance to extreme conditions, and high storage speed and capacity are necessary. Here is what you need to know about industrial M.2 SSD options.

 

M.2 SSDs are an alternative to mSATA SSDs.

Mini-SATA, or mSATA, remains a hugely popular SSD interface that offers premium reliability. A large number of industrial devices that require a small form factor drive continue to utilize the mSATA format. However, there is a challenge with mSATA. It can only handle speeds of up to 6Gb/s, with a maximum capacity of 1TB.

 

Increasingly, devices are designed to be smaller and more powerful than ever. Oftentimes, mSATA cannot meet the full speed and capacity needs of a state-of-the-art device. For this reason, M.2 SSDs are attractive to many engineers and OEMs. With an M.2 SSD, you can use a SATA or PCIe interface, so it is possible to achieve much faster speeds than you could with mSATA. However, M.2 SSDs are small, so they can work in devices in which mSATA drives would be appropriate.

 

There are three different sizes of M.2 SSDs.

M.2 SSDs are available in three sizes, measured in millimeters: 2240, 2260, and 2280. For each drive size, the first two numbers listed refer to the width of the SSD, while the last two refer to the length. The longer the SSD, the more storage capacity it will have, as the additional length provides more room to install flash chips.

 

Industrial devices require industrial M.2 SSDs.

For industrial applications, it is important to choose an industrial M.2 SSD. This kind of SSD will have SLC flash, which is the highest grade of flash available. It will also be able to tolerate rugged operating conditions, such as extreme temperatures, shock, and vibration, without compromising the functionality of the drive or risking data loss.
