What to Expect from SSD mSATA Storage

UTILITY mSATA SSD

 

If you are seeking storage with a small form factor, then SSD mSATA storage may be the right answer for you. SSDs featuring mSATA technology offer the benefits of SATA in a smaller size, so you can still get reliable storage that can tolerate rugged operating conditions with low power consumption. The mSATA specifications are standardized, so you don’t have to worry about compatibility issues if you have to switch between mSATA providers. Could SSD mSATA storage be the right choice for your application? Here is a closer look at what you can expect if you choose mSATA SSDs.

 

SATA Specifications

Serial ATA, or SATA, specifications are always set by the SATA International Organization, or SATA-IO. For mSATA, these specs describe how SATA signals can be mapped onto a PCIe connector so that it can be used with a wide variety of applications. This allows mSATA SSDs to effectively transfer data between the host system and the storage system. These specifications were released for mSATA in 2011, with contributions from all of the SATA-IO members, to make SATA technology viable for increasingly small applications.

 

SSD Reliability

SSDs featuring mSATA allow designers to get the benefits of SSDs in their small industrial applications. SSDs, or solid state drives, have become the preferred drive format over HDDs, or hard disk drives, for a number of reasons. For industrial applications, the reliability of SSDs is the most important factor. SSDs do not feature any moving components like HDDs do, so they are not prone to functional problems caused by shock, vibration, or temperature extremes. The reliability of SSDs means that they can be trusted to handle the kind of critical data industrial applications require.

 

Small Form Factor

Both industrial and commercial devices are becoming smaller in size, but the demand for storage capacity and security is increasing at the same time. That is where mSATA enters the picture. In terms of size, mSATA SSDs are 30 mm in width and 50.95 mm in length. It is also possible to get mSATA SSDs in half sizes. Despite the small size, mSATA can support a bandwidth of up to 6 Gbps, delivering the speed that is necessary for industrial systems. mSATA SSDs are also available in a range of capacities, so designers can find the right solution for their specific application’s needs.
