Technical Specifications

SDM5 MLC 22-pin/180 Degree SDM5 MLC 7-pin/180 Degree


SDM is a high performance, embedded SSD designed to replace a conventional SATA hard disk drive. SDM can be plugged into a standard SATA 7-pin or 22-pin connector commonly found on motherboards in desktops, set-top boxes, industrial PC and thin client systems. Fortasa's SDM consists of an Industrial Flash controller and file management firmware that communicates directly with the host system accross the SATA standard interface. From the host system standpoint, the SDM is completely transparent and behaves just like a HDD.

This product is well suited for embedded flash storage applications offering new and expanded functionality as well as more cost-effective designs, better performance and increased reliability.

The SDM product offering consists of multiple SATA Module form factors, including 7-pin and 22-pin connectors, power cable-less designs, Left or Right side connector positions, etc. We also offer an optional Write Protect switch feature to protect data from any destructive host command or virus.
