Slim SATA (MO-297) Industrial and Industrial MLC are Simple, Reliable Embedded Solutions
In May 2009, JEDEC published the MO-297 standard which defines the dimensions, layout and connector position of Slim SATA. The Slim SATA electrical and protocol specification follows the SATA-IO (Serial ATA International Organization) Group’s specifications.
The Slim SATA is able to connect to any system’s standard SATA connectors made for 2.5” Hard Drives or Solid State Drives. There are 4 mounting holes provided to secure the Slim SATA in place inside the system.
Cactus offers both an Industrial Grade Slim SATA, based on SLC NAND flash, for the most demanding embedded application environments and a Industrial MLC Slim SATA, based on MLC NAND, which provides a cost effective solution for less demanding applications.
Commercial Slim SATA are built using the lower cost MLC (Multi Level Cell) NAND components. They generally are reliable when running an operating system at room temperature, but may have issues at extreme high and low temperatures. For high write cycle applications, it is recommended to move to the Industrial Grade products using higher endurance memory.
More Industrial versus Industrial MLC information can be found on our website.
