How Industrial Grade Mini-SATA Provides Storage Solutions for Small Spaces

Delkin Devices Mini mSATA (MO-300)

 

For industrial applications with a need for maximum storage reliability with a minimum of space, mini-SATA SSD is the answer. Mini-SATA—or mSATA—SSDs are designed to meet both SATA-IO group specifications and JEDEC MO300B industry standards. They use the SATA interface for high-speed applications and provide SLC NAND reliability, so that they give the performance and reliability necessary for industrial applications even when space is an issue.

 

When should industrial grade mSATA SSDs be used?

Industrial grade mSATA SSDs should be used in small form factor applications in which there is little usable space but a need for high performance. Typically, space constraints can limit the availability of Flash memory options, but mSATA makes it possible to get industrial grade performance even in tight quarters. That means that engineers and designers do not have to compromise on shock, vibration, extended temperatures, or SLC NAND Flash.

 

How is industrial grade mSATA different from commercial grade?

Industrial grade products have a few important differences from commercial grade solutions. One of the most significant is that industrial grade storage relies on SLC NAND. SLC stands for single-level cell, and it means that one bit of data is stored on each cell of the Flash memory system. SLC is more stable than MLC, or multi-level cell memory, which is important for industrial applications.

 

Industrial grade products can also tolerate temperature extremes, as well as the shock and vibrations that many industrial applications are exposed to. With industrial grade mSATA, you can expect read and write speeds of 170 MB/s and 150 MB/s, respectively, as well as capacities of between 4GB and 64GB.

 

Can parts changes impact the reliability of industrial grade mSATA SSD?

Parts changes in NAND Flash can cause in-the-field compatibility issues. With industrial grade mSATA, engineers don’t have to worry about surprise parts changes, as these are manufactured with a controlled bill of materials. No part of the storage will be changed unless an entirely new product number is issued, so unexpected tweaks won’t render devices faulty.
