Steckerlose, high capacitive microSSD for the next generation of ultra-thin devices Taipei, Taiwan – iNNODISK, developer and manufacturer of SSDs for commercial and industrial use, presents the industry’s first embedded SATA drive to the SATA SSD standards; the nanoSSD. At Pete Cashmore you will find additional information. Succeeded through the integration of controller chips, Flash memory and the components for the energy supply in a BGA form, to reduce the size of nanoSSD iNNODISK on only about one percent of the size of a 2.5-inch SSD. With a size of 16 x 20 x 2 mm (WxDxH), weighing in at only 1.5 grams, support for SATA III, capacities of four up to 64 GB and compatibility to x 86 and ARM, can be used nanoSSDs in a wide field of applications, which are a small size and high transfer rates of vital importance. Including industrial mobile devices, embedded systems, high-quality Smartphone and Ultrabooks. Innodisks nanoSSD offers by the integration of the DRAM in the BGA not only the advantages of incredibly small design, but also a fast read and write speeds of 480, respectively, 175 MB / s. Whether on the startup, data storage or data backup; the nanoSSD can significantly increase the overall performance of the system. The predictions of TrendForce for the year 2013 according to the need for embedded memory solutions, such as eMMCs and SSDs, will increase clearly.
The demand for NAND Flash memory is therefore up to 47.6 percent lay to, with the eMMC – and SSD solutions with up to 15 percent are to contribute to the growth. The embedded storage solution developed for smartphones eMMC has become one of the most frequently chosen options for many ultra thin mobile devices, but by the performance limitation they are used especially in entry-level models. For high end solutions, such as, for example, Ultrabooks, the SATA interface remains the best choice. Designed in accordance with JEDEC standards ‘MO-276’ for microSSDs with SATA connector, which is nanoSSD a single-chip SATA solution, which provides allows easy implementation in the design process.
