Netlist Intros mSATA Mini And Slim SSDs
The mSATA mini SSD module offers storage capacity of up to 32GB with onboard 64MB DRAM cache, while the mSATA slim SSD module offers storage capacities up to 128GB with onboard 64MB DRAM cache. Both products' smaller form-factor and SSD support for ultra-dense applications makes the mSATA mini and slim modules ideal for datacenter equipment and embedded systems, or so the company says. You're probably curious about specs and performance, so here's the skinny on that: these are fully SATA v2.6 compatible, the mSATA modules support data rates to 3.0Gbps, SMART functionality, expanded register 48-bit addressing mode, and power management. The mSATA mini has typical read performance up to 120MB/s and typical write performance up to 48MB/s. The mSATA slim has typical read performance up to 240MB/s and typical write performance to 190MB/s.
Pricing remains mum for now, but being that these are marketed towards business, don't count on them being inexpensive.
