Intel® Solid-State Drive 530 mini-SATA: SpecificationIntroductionThis document describes the specifications and capabilities of the Intel® Solid-State Drive 530 series (Intel® SSD 530 series).The Intel SSD 530 series is a case-less mSATA (mini-SATA) design that is designed for Ultrabook™ and small form factor compute platforms. This form factor allows ultra-compact solutions which deliver leading performance for Serial Advanced Technology Attachment (SATA)-based computers in capacities ranging up to 240GB.The latest feature addition is the DevSleep functionality, a low power drive state controlled by the host via the DevSleep pin. The drive will consume a mere 200 µW while in this state.As compared to standard SATA HDDs, Intel SSD 530 series offers these key features:• High I/O and throughput performance• Lower power consumption• Increased system responsiveness• Higher reliability• Enhanced ruggedness• Small form-factor• Minimum weightThe Intel SSD 530 series also offers additional key features such as:• Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256-bit EncryptionAES 256-bit encryption is an industry standard in data security, providing a hardware-based mechanism for encryption and decryption of user data. Utilizing a 256-bit encryption key, AES encryption—when combined with an ATA drive password—helps protect user data.Read the full Intel® Solid-State Drive 530 mini-SATA Specification.
