Unigen to Introduce Family of High-Performance 6Gb/s mSATA SSD Modules


Unigen Corporation, a leading OEM designer and manufacturer of enterprise-grade flash storage, DRAM, and wireless communication modules, today announced the launch of its 6Gb/s mSATA and mini mSATA solid state drive modules for embedded applications.

The modules are available in three models. The Unigen Model 2202 and 2204 feature high random access performance, while Model 2512 is optimized for incompressible data or multimedia files such as video, image, and audio files. These new SSD modules will be available for shipment in August 2012.

With sequential read/write speeds up to 500 MB/s and 4K random read/write speeds up to 60,000 IOPS, the new mSATA devices will enable embedded systems to break through the bandwidth limitations imposed by 3Gb/s SATA and other often used solutions like USB or CompactFlash cards.

Specialized form factors like the mini mSATA are 20x smaller in volume than 2.5" SSDs and 10x smaller than 1.8" SSDs, offering tremendous space savings for embedded designs.
"We are very pleased to offer our customers SATA 6Gb/s performance in the smaller form factor they need, enabling them to improve overall system performance from boot up time to faster data access," said Paul Heng, CEO of Unigen.

Unigen offers the new modules in MLC and SLC versions.
