What is a 32GB mSATA drive?

ME5HAPX7V-3N000-2 - SATA - mSATA (MO-300B) - 512GB - MLC

 

A 32GB mSATA drive is a solid state drive that uses the SATA interface. It is a common drive choice for netbooks, laptops, and other portable devices. This is thanks to its small size and low power consumption, as well as the ease of SATA compatibility. This form of mSATA drive is available with both SLC and MLC flash for industrial applications. Delkin’s industrial 32GB mSATA drive features extended temperature ranges and a high tolerance for shock and vibration.

 

SATA vs. mSATA

SATA, or Serial ATA, is an interface that connects storage drives to the motherboard of a device. The SATA interface was created and continues to be managed by the Serial ATA International Organization, or SATA-IO, which sets the design specifications for SATA drives.

 

mSATA stands for mini-SATA. It is a smaller version of a traditional SATA drive and is designed for use in small, portable devices and applications. In recent years, the demand for small drives has increased, thanks to the trend for devices to be made in increasingly smaller sizes. mSATA is a fraction of the size of the 2.5-inch, full-size SATA interface.

 

SATA Revisions

All mSATA drives are up to date with the latest SATA revisions. The most recent form of SATA offers transfer speeds of 6Gb/s and is backwards compatible. This version of SATA is SATA 3.0 and is the fastest SATA interface available. All SATA updates are regulated by the SATA-IO, and any future revisions will also be applied to new mSATA drives.

 

32GB mSATA Drive Features

A 32GB mSATA drive offers 32GB of capacity in a solid state drive format. Solid state drives, or SSDs, have surpassed HDDs, or hard disk drives, in terms of popularity because they are faster and not prone to any of the mechanical failures that can occur with HDDs. With a 32GB industrial mSATA drive, you will also get SLC flash memory with an extended temperature range, a locked BOM, and a variety of customization options.

 

Are you considering a 32GB mSATA drive for your industrial application? Delkin is available to answer your questions and help you make the right choice when it comes to flash memory.
