SSD that plugs to SATA HD Plugs

InnoDisk has announced what it touts as the world's smallest SSD (solid state drive) with a Serial ATA (SATA) interface. Adapting the typical IDE module to SATA's smaller connector, the "Satadom" needs no separate power cabling, features a locking connector, and targets harsh environments, says InnoDisk.

The Satadom is available in capacities ranging from 128MB to 8GB. All use SLC (single level cell) flash, guarantee 100,000 program erase cycles, and employ a wear-leveling algorithm. They have a burst transfer speed of 150MB/sec., can read 24MB of data per second, and write at 14MB/sec., InnoDisk says.

Other specifications listed by the company include:
  • Operating temperature -- -10 to 70 deg. C
  • Storage temperature -- -55 to 95 deg. C
  • Vibration resistance -- 5G (7Hz to 2000Hz)
  • MTBF -- 3 million hours
  • DC input voltage -- +5V single power supply operation
