SSD SATA III Features

DE2TAPX7R-35000-2 - SATA - 2.5" SSD - 2TB - MLC

 

SSD SATA III is a solid state drive that uses the SATA III standard, which is currently the most advanced SATA format available. It offers speeds of 6Gb/s and is compatible with a wide range of consumer applications. It is also backwards compatible with SATA II systems, although speed will be somewhat compromised by the older port. If you’re considering an SSD with SATA features, here is what you need to know.

 

SATA III Basics

As with all SATA products, SATA III features the designs and technical requirements set forth by the Serial ATA International Organization. It is a board-level storage solution for industrial applications that need consistent performance without any concerns about host compatibility. In industrial formats, SSD SATA III is available in capacities of up to 64GB.

 

The data transfer speed of SATA III as compared to its predecessors is what convinces many OEMs and designers to upgrade their applications. As expected for industrial applications, SSD SATA III features extended temperature ranges, with operating temperatures of -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C, and storage temperature ranges of -50 degrees C to 100 degrees C. These drives also have an increased ability to tolerate shock and vibration when compared to consumer grade SSDs.

 

SATA SSDs vs. HDDs

SSDs were once considered to be too costly to have broad usage, but they have since become the go-to storage format over HDDs. There are several reasons for this transition. One of the biggest benefits of using SSDs over HDDs is the fact that SSDs don’t have any moving parts. The magnetic, spinning disks that are used in HDDs are prone to encountering issues, particularly in industrial environments in which they are exposed to high levels of vibration. SSDs simply don’t have the same problem.

 

SSDs are also faster than HDDs, which is a significant benefit for industrial users. With SLC flash technology, which is used in industrial SSDs, read and write operations are dramatically faster than with HDDs.
