Many storage solutions have been launched in the market. Solid state drive is a major player in fulfilling the needs of the storage industry. SSDs are known to efficiently enhance computing performance when compared with previous storage solutions such as hard disk drives. Longsys has introduced so many types of SSDs such as 2.5-inch SSD, mSATA SSD, M.2 SSD, and BGA SSD. Each SSD model is playing a major role in the industrial and commercial sectors. Today, we are going to briefly discuss everything about Industrial mSATA SSD.
mSATA is short for mini SATA (Serial Advanced Attachment Technology). Its name implies that it is a slim and mini storage device that is ideal for industrial applications requiring smaller size storage devices. This storage option is precise to support the system having a mini footprint than 2.5 SSD. The mSATA interface is managed by JEDEC, following the mainstream mini SATA interface. This type of SSD is very popular in the market because of the increasing demand for ultra-thin devices.
In the beginning, mSATA was mainly used for commercial systems. But it was quickly rated as a major storage option in the industrial sector as well because of its mini footprint, power efficiency, efficient performance, and permanence. Earlier, the mSATA offered a storage capacity of up to 64GB. That storing capacity was not enough to cope with the emerging needs of modern devices. The user had to use an external HDD to store excessive data to improve the system’s performance. Thankfully, many companies such as Longsys came up with the industrial mSATA SSD that offers storage needs of up to 1 TB. Thus, mSATA is a major contributor to industrial applications.
Speed: The performance of any SSD is measured by its speed. The reliable and efficient SSD would provide fast read and write speed. The sequential read/write ratio depends on disk performance. It is the data transfer speed per second. Currently, FORESEE mSATA solutions are utilizing the SATA 3 interface and are providing data transfer speed up to 550MB/s.
Durability: FORESEE industrial mSATA SSD comes with two types of flash memory medium such as pSLC and MLC. These flash memory mediums greatly define the durability and reliability of an SSD. The mSATA constituting pSLC memory medium provides excellent durability while the one constituting MLC memory medium is excellent for offering huge capacity than reliability.
Compatibility: Earlier the mSATA was used only for boosting the performance of low-spaced devices such as smartphones and laptops. But now it has a wide range of industrial and commercial applications. It is performing a significant role in empowering industrial PCs, rail transportation systems, industrial equipment, electrical equipment, medical systems, POS systems, data centers, servers, vehicle dash cams, etc.
The industrial mSATA SSD is equipped with the following key features:
DRAM-less design: The mSATA uses the DRAM-less design which makes it an inexpensive and fast storage option. This design enables the SSD to perform six times faster than the classic hard disk drives.
Strong Endurance: Industrial environment demands electronic components that can tolerate the tough working conditions of this environment. mSATA now comes with a strong endurance feature that makes it a suitable option for the industrial sector. The mSATA components remain intact even in intense working temperatures ranging between -45 to 85°C. Thus, it is resolving many local application problems.
Error Correction: It is specified with LPDC technology that precisely detects the error and deals with the error very smartly. It offers three to four times error correction capacity thus maintaining data integrity and security.
mSATA is similar to SATA in specifications and interface. The size factor precisely differentiates these two SSDs. The form factor of mSATA is smaller as compared to the SATA form factor. The size of mSATA is approximately similar to a business card, making it an ideal option for thin systems. mSATA SSDs are a type of solid-state drive that uses the PCI Express Mini Card physical card connector. They are typically used in laptops and other portable devices where space is limited thus offering several benefits over traditional hard drives, including faster data access and less power usage.
The SATA follows the 2.5-inch form factor that makes it a precise option for large systems. Storing capacity greatly depends on the size and since mSATA is mini in size so it is second-rated in capacity than the SATA. Both types of SSDs deliver a high-performance ratio by offering fast read-write speed.
As computer technology continues to evolve, so does the way we store our data. Flash storage is becoming increasingly popular, due to its speed and reliability. The industrial mSATA SSD is the next generation of storage and offers many benefits over previous storage devices. Longsys FORESEE solutions are more resistant to shock and vibration, making them ideal for use in the industrial sector. Furthermore, our fixtures are professionally designed by using premium quality independent firmware. Since the market demand for SSD is high so Longsys is focusing to come up with high-performance cutting-edge technology to serve the industry with the very solutions. Longsys aims to extend the SSD product line and will introduce many new models of SSDs in the coming years.
