Apacer mSATA SSDs launched
Ryan Martin / 5 years ago
SSDs have become the defacto storage solution for ultra-thin notebooks. Apacer has produced a new mSATA A1 modular SSD that features a SATA 3.0 high-speed transmission interface and complies with JEDEC MO-300 standard codes. Currently, this model supports Intel Rapid Start and Intel Smart Response technologies.
With dimensions of 50.8 x29.8mmand the product thickness being only that of a single PCB panel, it can streamline the space on the motherboard and free itself from the limit of the dimensions of the traditional mechanical hard-disk foot-print. In terms of product performance, the mSATA A1 delivers excellent numbers. It uses high-speed ONFi 2.2 DDR NAND Flash memory and the cache memory of plug-in DDRII, realizing maximum sequential read/write speeds of 470/200 MB/sec and IOPs of up to 50K.
Currently, in addition to using the highly reliable SLC chip structure and boasting a capacity of up to 128GB, the mSATA A1 series is being introduced together with the mSATA A1-M series using MLC chips with a capacity range of 32GB ~ 256GB for customers who take the product cost into account. To strengthen product performance, this product series offers various value-added technologies including Global Wear Leveling, 40 bit/1k Byte Error Correcting Code and intelligent power failure recovery, all of which give optimal reliability and stability for the product.
Apacer also notes that firmware and major components of all the products can be fixed upon customer’s demand and verification. This reduces the risk of out-of-stock and compatibility issues by providing customers with a reliable and stable supply.
