Spotlight on the 32GB mSATA SSD

Delkin Devices mSATA

 

SSDs that use mSATA connectors offer speed and reliability in a small form factor. When you choose a 32GB mSATA SSD, you get a high-capacity storage solution with a familiar SATA design, along with flash memory that is capable of tolerating rugged operating conditions. mSATA SSDs are available in a number of different capacities, ranging from 4GB to 64GB with SLC flash and 32GB to 1TB with MLC flash. Regardless of whether you choose an SLC or MLC mSATA SSD with 32GB capacity, you will get the small size, low power consumption, and lightweight embedded storage design you expect from a SATA drive.

 

Understanding mSATA

Most people are familiar with the SATA interface, which was introduced in 2003 to replace PATA connectors. PATA cables were too large, slow, and bulky for emerging technologies, so SATA was designed with thinner, flat cables and faster data transfer speeds to meet the needs of new device designs. Since its inception, the SATA interface has undergone three updates to continue to evolve with technology.

 

Although SATA is widely used and recognized for its reliability, the interface is still too large for the increasingly small devices of today. That is why the SATA-IO—the industry body that develops SATA standards—created mSATA. This smaller version of the SATA interface was initially known as mini-SATA. Like the full-size SATA interface, mSATA strictly adheres to design specifications set by the SATA-IO, so you can rely on universal compatibility.

 

Choosing 32GB mSATA SSDs

If you need a 32GB mSATA SSD, then you will need to choose between industrial-grade SLC drives and commercial-grade MLC drives. An industrial-grade SLC SSD will have flash memory in which only a single bit of data is stored per cell. This allows the flash memory to offer the best available level of data security and speed. In addition, SLC SSDs have the longest lifespan of all flash drives. MLC flash is considered to be commercial grade flash. With MLC, two bits of data are stored per cell. This format does not last quite as long as SLC flash, but it can still be an ideal solution for some devices. Depending on the manufacturer you choose, you may be able to get a 32GB mSATA SSD with MLC flash that offers some industrial-grade benefits, including industrial operating temperature ranges and lifecycle management.

 

Delkin offers both SLC and MLC 32GB mSATA SSDs with all of the benefits you expect from industrial embedded storage solutions. Discuss your needs with our team today to find out how we can help you find the right storage for your application.
