STEC Announces New S230 Series Of Slim SATA SSDs Featuring Power-Fail Protection

SANTA ANA, Calif., Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- STEC, Inc. (Nasdaq:STEC), a leading global provider of solid-state drive (SSD) technologies and products, today announced the small-form-factor s230 Series of Slim SATA solid-state drives providing an efficient storage design tailored for embedded systems.

Anchoring STEC's line of industrial-grade embedded solid-state-storage solutions that feature SATA and SATA-II SSDs and capacities of up to 50GB, the s230 is a low-power, small-footprint Slim SATA drive in an industry standard JEDEC MO-297 format occupying less than half the space of a standard 2.5-inch drive. It features advanced PowerSafe™ Technology, making it one of the most reliable and cost-effective devices for space-constrained systems, in which protection against drive corruption (due to unexpected power loss) is essential. The s230 is available in a range of cost-effective capacities – from 8GB to 32GB.

As the industrial SSD market continues to grow – market researcher IDC projects annual shipments of intelligent embedded systems of nearly 4 billion units by 2015 – the need for smaller embedded-computing solutions is increasing. These compact embedded designs require long-endurance and highly reliable storage solutions that are smaller than today's traditional 2.5- and 1.8-inch rotating-disk or solid-state drives. The s230 Series is ideally suited for space-constrained, fan-less system designs where traditional storage solutions are too large. The new compact design of s230 drives fills the growing need for small-format SATA SSD solutions in both the integrator and OEM markets. 

"STEC is meeting the business demands for cost-effective embedded SSD solutions that provide protection against unexpected power loss," said Scott Phillips, senior manager, product marketing at STEC. "The s230 Series offers the best solution for highly integrated systems in which heat dissipation is a key concern, or where the total system power budget is limited. Through this product line, we are happy to extend our long track record of supporting the embedded markets."
