Basically - SSD stands for Solid State Disk - which means a storage device being based on solid state (or semiconductor) typically Flash based memory. There is actually no "disk" used as in mechanical Hard disk drives which have rotating disks storing the data in magnetic particles. A SSD stores the data in raw Flash components which are managed by a Flash controller which communicates to the Main Units (Motherboard) by a interface like SATA, PCIe etc.
The micro SSD we offer is a miniaturised and solderable version of the SSD desribed above, suitable for space critical applications.

Flash Memory is a non volatile electrically erase- and programmable type of semiconductor memory.
The pSLC configuration on muliti level cell ( MLC, TLC) NAND only takes 2 bits for data storage from original 4bit MLC or 8 bits TLC NAND. It can dramatically increase the reliability, endurance of NAND Flash. It makes the SSDs meet high P/E cycle, high TBW demand in industrial and embedded applications and also increases data access performance.
SerialATA Bus is a serial interface widely used to connect Hard Disk or alike flash based Storages (SSD´s) to the main control unit like the PC motherboard for instance.
