Samsung Develops SSD With SATA Mini-card Design for Netbooks

Samsung is now sampling a SATA-interface mini-card solid state drive (SSD) for use in the expanding netbook marketplace.

Featuring a mini-PCI Express (PCIe) form factor with a SATA 3.0Gb/s interface, the cost-efficient mini-card SSD is nearly 80 percent smaller than the conventional 2.5-inch hard disk drive, making it ideal for the tighter constraints of most netbooks. In addition, it can be used in printers and various handheld terminals including ruggedized mobile devices.

Moreover, the SATA mini-card SSD form factor can be used in a combination comprised of the SSD as main memory and HDD as supporting storage space. This new approach is expected to increase the adoption of SSDs in a broader range of applications.

Samsung is working to standardize the new mechanical form factor and its pin layout specifications at JEDEC (Joint Electron Device Engineering Council). With possible revisions by OEM manufacturers, standardization could be expected as early as the third quarter of this year.

Available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB densities, the new SSD drive will be produced using 40-nanometer-class process technology. The SATA mini-card SSD provides a sequential read rate of 200MB/s (megabytes per second) and writes data sequentially at 100MB/s.

Samsung?s mini-card SSD is only 30 millimeters (mm) wide and 51mm high. The drive weighs up to 8.5g and measures up to 3.75 millimeters thick. Also offering a high degree of energy efficiency, the new drive consumes 0.3 watts of power.

Samsung's new netbook-targeted SSD is available with optional full disk encryption to thwart theft or any unwanted access to a netbook or other device.
