SLIM SATA EMBEDED SOLID STATE DRIVE (SSD)
2.5" Drive Alternative for Embedded Applications
The Slim SATA format is a ratified JEDEC/SATA-IO standard offering a 2.5" SATA replacement alternative for space constrained embedded applications. With its small footprint and industry- standard SATA connector, the Slim SATA format is an ideal fit for embedded solid state storage applications (e.g. HDD replacement, boot module for virtualization applications, HDD caching, etc.) because it allows for high capacities and high performance in one of the smallest formats available in the market.
Leveraging STEC's proprietary, high performance MACH8 SSD controller, the Slim SATA design offers high-performance and high capacities resulting in a no-compromise solid state storage solution providing embedded system designers with a true plug-n-play storage device, allowing for short design cycles and fast time to market.
Flash memory has quickly become the product of choice for applications requiring high reliability and high tolerance to shock, vibration, humidity, altitude, and temperature, especially important to mobile applications. Because the Slim SATA design uses NAND flash technology (e.g. no moving parts), it is more reliable and has much lower latency compared to a traditional hard disk drive, while consuming half the power (typically under 2 watts compared to 2.5+ watts for a typical mobile hard disk drive). STEC's Slim SATA also adheres to the JEDEC mechanical specification MO-297 and as well as industry compliance and regulatory standards including SATA-IO, UL, FCC, RoHS, and ATA-7. This combined with a proprietary state-of-the-art flash memory controller supporting key flash management features including advanced wear-leveling and error checking and correction as well as drive monitoring (SMART), provides OEMs with the flexibility to address customer-specific applications with the industry's highest reliability and endurance.
