SLC SATA Basics

 

SLC SATA is one of the most reliable flash storage options available for industrial applications. This flash-based storage offers unbeatable capacity and data protection, even in rugged operating conditions. SLC SATA can also be customized to provide specific features, including encryption for applications in which data security is a priority. Although SATA was first introduced to the market for consumer applications, it has since been embraced by industrial users for its wide range of benefits. If you are considering SLC SATA for your industrial memory needs, this information will help you make a final decision.

 

What is SATA?

Serial ATA, or SATA, is the interface that has historically been used most often in both solid state drives, or SSDs, and hard disk drives, or HDDs. SATA devices connect to the motherboard of a system via a SATA port. Although some designs are moving away from SATA in favor of other interfaces for multi-terabyte drives, it remains an enormously popular system and is part of nearly every device that’s more than a few years old.

 

What makes SLC SATA different?

SLC flash makes SATA as reliable as possible. SLC, or single-level cell, is a type of NAND flash memory in which each cell holds one bit of data. It is prized by many industrial application designers because storing a single bit of data on each cell offers the best data protection possible. It reduces the risk of data loss caused by power issues or operation errors due to cross-cell noise.

 

SLC SATA also works in rugged operating conditions that could cause errors with other storage formats. This type of storage can remain operational in extended temperature ranges of -40 degrees C up to 85 degrees C and in conditions in which vibration and shock may be intense.

 

At Delkin, our SATA solutions are fully customizable for use with any application in which mission-critical data will be stored and processed. Our SLC SATA also comes with a controlled BOM, so you don’t have to worry about unexpected parts changes. Contact our product team today for more information.
