mSATA

mSATA

(Mini-Serial ATA) A version of the SATA interface for small hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs). Used for netbooks and tablets, mSATA drives are about the size of a business card (a third the size of 2.5" drives). mSata uses the same plug and socket as the Mini PCI Express (mPCIe) card, but the data signals are different. mSATA was superseded by M.2, which is Version 2 of Mini PCI Express (see Mini PCI Express). See SATA.
