SATA Express and SATA µSSD – The New SATA Standards

“It’s a big day for SATA-IO, as the organization has just announced not one, but two new SATA standards.

The first of these, the SATA Express specification, gets the latter half of its name from the ‘e’ in PCIe, as it will allow current SATA standards to piggyback on the PCIe interface, boosting speeds to 8Gbps and 16Gbps, up from the current 6Gbps. SATA Express is expected to make its official debut later this year.

SATA µSSD, on the other hand, is currently ready to go, and already implemented in SanDisk’s iSSD embedded drive.”
