Serial ATA (SATA)

Sata CabkesAn active member of the working group that developed and specified the Serial ATA*  interconnect standard, we lead the connector industry in with the largest growing family of Serial ATA interconnect solutions that support this platform.

Along with the digital revolution, the ability to create, store and distribute vast amounts of  music data and games is continually driving demand for higher speed, higher capacity storage drives with increasingly smaller form factors. This has opened up new storage  applications for Serial ATA as hard disk drives are increasingly being designed into a growing  number of HDD-DVD recorders, home servers, multimedia hubs, LCD TVs, digital jukeboxes, HDD-enabled game consoles, audio players and automobile audio visual products.

SAS CablesWe are positioned to help storage makers take an  early shot at this fast popularizing technology market. With the broadest line of Serial ATA Board-to-Board and Cable-to-Board interconnects that support storage  applications for desktop, mobile and enterprise computing, and consumer electronics, we are helping the world's leading storage makers  and their users get their products to the market sooner, with greater reliability and lower cost. 



Locking Latches
Sata Cable Locking latches for signal cables have recently been approved by the Serial ATA Working Group. Positive locking latches ensure cables will stay connected. We offer latching cable receptacles in both straight and right angle  versions. This ensures an easy transition when converting existing designs from Parallel ATA to Serial ATA.  

 Locking PCB signal plugs are also available in both vertical and right angle versions and are backwards compatible. The extra plastic shroud used by the cable locking mechanism  ensures the signal plugs are more robust than the original SATA design. The vertical plug will be available in both SMT and through-hole versions.

Features and Benefits

Differential pair signaling technology signal and power interface

Self-cancels interference without the need for twisting wires; combined signal and power interface, with built-in  hot-plug capability, is ideal for blind-mating applications

Improved Performance

Increased disk drive data rates; data robustness via more thorough error-checking and  error-correcting capabilities; end-to-end integrity of transferred commands and data can be guaranteed across serial bus

Reductions in voltage and pin count

Improved power consumption and management; simplifies configuration of Serial ATA storage devices, enabling the  use of thinner and more flexible cables

Smaller, easier-to-route cables

Improved airflow and thermal dynamics in smaller form-factors; easier installations and  upgrades; eliminates cable length limitation

Backward compatibility

Compatible with existing ATA software drivers and runs on standard operating systems without modification


Provides significant headroom for future enhancements to the computing platform as well as  improvements in bandwidth performance and data transmission reliability

Cost effectiveness

Greater performance improvement potential with 10 year roadmap; allow performance of internal storage devices to  continue to increase unabated for years to come
