245S Series mSATA

The Cactus Technologies 245S Series OEM Grade mSATA Memory Card is a Pseudo-SLC NAND based solid-state flash memory device that complies with the industry standard JEDEC MO-300B and SATA-IO group’s specifications. It is available in capacities from 4GBytes to 256GBytes.

It is intended for OEM applications needing a cost effective part with high performance SATA III interface and applications which require better endurance, error rates and data retention than the Commercial Grade MLC SATA III SSD. A detailed overview of pSLC is provided in the Overview of Pseudo-SLC NAND White Paper.

The 245S Series pSLC mSATA comes with full BOM Control and is built with Stringent Quality Processes. Cactus Technologies incorporates World Class ECC, Wear Leveling and Defect Management into the 245S Series mSATA, making it a very reliable Pseudo-SLC mSATA. Custom Labeling, Custom ID and Preloaded Content are available based on customer requirements (see Custom Features).

mSATA to 2.5" SATA Adatper for Development

To ease an OEM's design efforts of Cactus mSATA into their system, Cactus created the mSATA to 2.5" SATA Adapter. It works with the mSATA 4GB to mSATA 128GB products.

The Adapter has a mSATA connector and mounting on the PCB and converts the signals to the standard 2.5" SATA connector found on most SSD. Many designers find it useful to use the final memory storage device even while developing on a different platform.

This is only meant for development of Cactus mSATA devices and is not available as a production product. Please contact Cactus if you need specific details regarding this adapter.
