RunCore develops mini-SSDs barely bigger than the connector

By , source: RunCore

RunCore has developed a compact SSD which, in most cases, is only slightly larger than a SATA connector. The RunCore Mini DOM SSD uses a SATA 3.0 Gbit/s interface and comes in three different versions. First there's the model with a vertical 7-pin SATA connector. The second SSD is equipped with a horizontal 7-pin connector. The last solid state drive is as big as the SATA interface and power connector next to one another. The first two versions will use either a 7-volt or 5-volt power connectors, rather than the conventional SATA power.

The SSDs will be available in capacities ranging from 8 GB to 64 GB in both a commercial and industrial edition. The first is suited for operation between temperatures of 0 and 70 degrees Celsius, while the industrial version should stay operational in a range of -40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius. The sequential reading and writing speeds are specified to be 112.7 MB/s and 47 Mb/s, respectively. The speeds for 4K files are 12 Mb/s and 0.6 Mb/s and are limited by the small controller, as well as the single flash chip.

RunCore uses a 104-ball FBGA package with a single chip that supports write protection. A self-destruct mode is also present, making the RunCore Mini Dom SSD a viable military solution.
