Innodisk released an industrial-embedded SATA device in accordance to SATA µSSD standards ? nanoSSD.
Through the integration of a control chip, flash memory and peripheral
power components into a single ball grid array (BGA) package, Innodisk
has managed to reduce the size of the nanoSSD to approximately 1% the
size of a 2.5" SSD. With dimensions of only 16 x 20 x 2 mm (WxLxH), a
weight of only 1.5g, SATA III support, capacities ranging from 4 to 64 GB
and both x86 and ARM compatibility, nanoSSD can be incorporated into a
wide variety of applications where a small form-factor and high transfer
rates are important, including industrial mobile devices, embedded
systems, tablets, high-end smart phones and Ultrabooks.
As a result of the integration of DRAM into a BGA, the product also
features read/write speeds of 480/175 MB/s, respectively.
according to MO-276 standards, the JEDEC standard for SATA microSSDs,
nanoSSD is a single-chip SATA implementation which allows for easy
design-in. With many applications in the industrial-embedded field,
Innodisk's nanoSSD can be applied in embedded storage devices of various
sizes, in particular, SATADOM, Innodisk's small form factor disk on
This product is fully compliant with the industrial-embedded industry's
standards, including: thermal sensor implementation, -40˚C to 85˚C wide
operation range, shock-resistance and ATA security and military
(MIL-STD-810F/G) compliant quick erase standards.
Innodisk further adds value through firmware optimization designed by
in-house R&D, extending the life of its flash products through
wear-leveling technology. Also, reducing the risk of industrial
applications is Innodisk's own disk monitoring tool ? iSMART, which
allows users to visualize SSD wear-leveling status at a glance with a
clear graphical display, giving users time to replace damaged disks
before they fail.
Innodisk will present nanoSSD at the "Onboard SATA III Single-Chip
Solution - New Trend of SSD Application in Embedded Systems" seminar that
will take place May 30, 2013 at the Taipei International Convention
Center in Taipei.
