            Ordering Information

            Micron’s 480GB M500 mSATA Solid State Drive uses a single-chip controller with a SATA interface on the system side and 8-channels of Micron NAND Flash internally. Packaged in a hard drive replacement enclosure, the solid state drive integrates easily in existing storage infrastructures. It is designed to use the SATA interface efficiently during both READs and
            WRITEs while delivering bandwidth-focused performance. Its technology enables enhanced boot times, faster application load times, reduced power consumption, and extended reliability.

            The self-encypting drive features a FIPS-compliant, AES-256 encryption engine, providing hardware-based, secure data encryption, with no loss of SSD performance. This SED follows the TCG/Opal specification for trusted peripherals. When TCG/Opal features are not enabled, the device can perform alternate data encryption by invoking the ATA security command-set encryption features, to provide fulldisk encryption (FDE) managed in the host system BIOS. TCG/Opal and FDE feature sets cannot be enabled simultaneously. The data encryption is always running; however, encryption keys are not managed and the data is not secure until either TCG/Opal or FDE feature sets are enabled.
