What is Serial ATA? Understanding SATA hard drive connectors

Serial ATA (SATA) is the SATA-IO standard interface for storage devices connecting with consumer devices. SATA replaces the parallel ATA bus to meet the increased bandwidth and performance demands of hard disk drive (HDD) storage applications. The SATA interface is still widely used by both HDD and solid state drives (SSD). As an active member of SATA-IO group, we offer many types of SATA connectors, including right angle and vertical PCB mounting orientations, and standard 22-position size in the SATA, slim line SATA, and Micro SATA form factors.
