Transcend launches mSATA and Half-slim Solid State Drives

Transcends new mSATA cards are No bigger than a business card and are cost effective with greater design flexibility

Transcend Information, Inc. (Transcend®), a global leader in storage and multimedia products, today announced the addition of low-profile mSATA and half-slim solid state drives (SSD) to its industrial product line. The new small footprint SSDs are designed especially for applications where a small form factor is desired, such as thin and light notebooks, net books, tablets, GPS, and mobile internet devices (MID).

According to Mr. Gordon Wu, Regional Head - South Asia, Transcend, “Our two new SSD modules offer great design flexibility and are cost savings as compared to other SSDs which typically use the larger 2.5” form factor. Despite their compact size, the mSATA and half-slim SSDs feature a high-bandwidth SATA 3GB/s interface that helps to bring the performance advantages of SSDs to notebooks, mobile devices and other embedded storage applications”

Transcend’s mSATA SSDs leverage the speed and reliability of the SATA interface, yet offer a smaller form factor than 2.5” SSDs—only one twelfth the volume and one seventh the weight. The mSATA SSDs measure 29.85 mm x 50.8 mm x 3.5 mm, and adhere to the MO-300A JEDEC standard for small form-factor SSDs.

Compared to mSATA SSDs, Transcend’s another small footprint half-slim SSD modules are in bigger form factors, 54 mm x 39 mm x 4 mm, but still much smaller than 2.5” SSDs—only one eighth the volume. The half-slim SATA SSD modules use the same SATA connector used on 2.5” hard disk drives and SSDs, making them ideal for applications such as industrial control systems and notebooks designed to use the 2.5” storage form factor. The half-slim SATA SSDs are compliant with the MO-297 JEDEC standard.

Transcend’s mSATA SSDs are offered in 32GB and 64GB capacities, while the half-slim SATA SSDs are available in capacities ranging from 4GB to 64GB.
