Technical Features of 32GB mSATA

 

mSATA offers the reliability of the popular SATA design in a form factor that’s appropriate for small devices. When mSATA was introduced, it was a computer-centric form of flash memory, intended for use in notebook computers and other thin devices that required powerful storage in a small form factor. Eventually, the low weight and small size of mSATA made it a desirable option for industrial devices as well as consumer products as a boot drive or for data storage. Delkin offers mSATA flash storage devices in a range of capacities, including our high-capacity 32GB mSATA, which can be customized or even custom designed for use in specific applications.
