mini SATA (mSATA)

Solid State Drives (SSD) on SATA modules have form factors of 3.5" and 2.5", which were unsuitable for notebooks. Therefore, Samsung and the JEDEC

have specified a smaller plug-in card format of 1.8" and 1" with the Mini-SATA card (mSATA), which meets the smaller space requirement. Mini-SATA physically works like Mini-PCI-Express with the data rates of the various revisions, which are 1.5 Gbit/s, 3.0 Gbit/s and 6.0 Gbit/s.
