Spotlight on 128GB mSATA Features

UTILITY mSATA SSD

 

The introduction of Mini-SATA, or mSATA, to the market in 2009 was a game-changer for devices with small form factors, since it allowed these devices to use the hugely popular SATA interface. mSATA can be found in a huge range of laptops, netbooks, and other mobile devices, thanks to its high data transfer rates, easy compatibility, and business-card size. mSATA is available in a variety of different capacities, with both MLC and SLC NAND flash options, so it is possible for engineers and OEMs to find the best fit possible for their applications. One popular mSATA format is the 128GB mSATA. Could this interface be the right fit for your application? This review of mSATA features may help you decide.

 

128GB mSATA Basics

mSATA complies with industry-standard JEDEC MO-300B, as well as the requirements set out by the SATA-IO, also known as the SATA International Organization. The SATA-IO standards ensure that all SATA devices, including mSATA, meet the same specifications, regardless of the manufacturer, so that it is simple for end users to get products from different sources without any concerns about compatibility.

 

There are several benefits of mSATA devices beyond the ability to use the interface in the increasingly small form factors that are the norm in today’s technology. mSATA devices also offer fast data transfer speeds with low power consumption, offering powerful SSD operations with a small footprint.

 

Additional 128GB mSATA Features

mSATA is available for both the commercial and industrial marketplace. The high-capacity 128GB mSATA format is typically a commercial SSD with MLC NAND flash. MLC stands for multi-level cell and is a flash memory format in which two bits of data are stored on each cell. This is the form of flash memory used in most commercial grade products.

 

128GB mSATA is ideal for users who need a high-capacity SSD with strong performance and security features, but who don’t require the extended temperature range and durability that industrial grade devices provide. With 128GB mSATA, you get important features such as reliable performance and a locked BOM, or bill of materials, which means that no components of the device that are necessary for operations will be changed without a new product number being issued. This means that you won’t have to worry about any unexpected changes that could cause failures in the field.
