Micron Technology has introduced solid-state drives for ultra-thin notebooks and ultrabooks in mini Serial ATA (mSATA) form-factor. The new RealSSD C400 SSD are projected to offer high performance and reliability expected from modern personal computers.

Micron RealSSD C400 SSDs are based on Marvell 88S9174-BL02 controller and Micron/Intel multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash memory made using 25nm process technologies. The C400-series offers different capacities ranging from 32GB to 256GB and utilizes Serial ATA-600 interface (6Gb/s) interface. The SSDs deliver sequential read and write speeds of up to 500MB/s and 260MB/s, respectively.

The mSATA form-factor combined high-capacity SSD in a space that is about one-third of the size of a standard business card (3cm*5cm).

"Efficient memory and storage are key components to portable computing. Our new mSATA delivers on the true promise of SSD technology — high-performance storage in a tiny, low-power package. Breaking away from the constraints of enclosures meant for hard drives is a great step toward enabling truly mobile computing platforms," said Justin Sykes, Micron's general manager of client SSD solutions.

The drive is currently in production and is available through Micron's extensive distribution network. A Crucial-branded version will be available to consumers this calendar quarter through select global channel partners via online store.
