mSATA - Computer Definition
(Mini-Serial ATA) A version of the SATA interface for small hard drives and solid state drives (SSDs). Used for netbooks and tablets, mSATA drives are about the size of a business card (a third the size of 2.5" drives). mSata uses the same plug and socket as the Mini PCI card, but the data signals are different. See SATA and Mini PCI.
