TDK launches Series 7 line of mSATA SSDs with SLC NAND

TDK has launched its Series 7 line of mSATA SSDs with SLC NAND, making them ideal for use as a cache drive Intel’s Rapid Storage Technology SSD caching. In addition to the robust SLC NAND, the SSD processor also uses 44-bit ECC to correct any errors, making them also ideal where they may face frequent write operations or where the risk of data loss/corruption must be kept as low as possible.

As caching SSDs can function just like a regular SSD, these are also suitable for equipment where a low capacity primary drive is adequate, such as kiosks, ticketing machines and so on. The 64GB model would also be ideal as an OS drive in laptops that feature both an mSATA and a 2.5″ HDD. This new series 7 line features 128-bit AES encryption, an SATA2 mSATA interface and sequential read and write performance of up to 170MB/s and 70MB/s, respectively.

This Series 7 line comes in a capacity range of 1GB to 64GB, however, no prices or availability have been announced at this time.
