Understanding SATA Embedded SSDs
SATA embedded SSDs are popular for use as boot drives and storage in a wide range of devices and applications. They offer fast speeds and a high degree of reliability, even in extreme operating conditions. SATA embedded SSDs are designed to meet SATA-IO and JEDEC standards and offer speeds of 6Gb/s in the SATA 3.0 version. SATA embedded SSDs are used in both commercial and industrial devices and are available in a range of capacities.
Why are SSDs so popular?
Solid state drives, or SSDs, have become preferred over hard disk drives, or HDDs, in a huge number of device designs. There are several reasons for this transition. One is that SSDs don’t have moving parts like HDDs. This makes them less prone to the mechanical problems that can occur with HDDs and cause device failures. SSDs are also faster than HDDs, because they don’t have the mechanical parts that have to fire up and start spinning. When SSDs were first introduced to the marketplace, they couldn’t provide adequate storage, but they now have expanded capacities that rival or exceed HDDs, so they have been embraced for both commercial and industrial use.
Why should I choose a SATA embedded SSD?
SATA embedded SSDs provide solid state storage for devices that need the speed and power of an SSD, even in a small space. These drives use SATA connectivity to provide 6Gb/s native transfer speeds and storage capacities of up to 1TB. They are available with both commercial grade MLC NAND flash and industrial grade SLC NAND flash. The flexibility of these options make SATA embedded SSDs an easy choice for OEMs who need an SSD that will meet the performance needs of their application as efficiently as possible. Industrial embedded SATA SSD users can benefit from extended operating and storage temperate ranges, tolerance to shock and vibration, and a controlled BOM to ensure that there are no unanticipated changes that could affect device compatibility.
