Introduction
The Intel® X25-V SATA Solid State Drive (SSD) delivers capacity and optimized
performance for cost sensitive and rugged platforms in the industry standard 2.5” form
factor. By combining Intel’s leading 34nm NAND flash memory technology with our
innovative high performance controller, Intel delivers its SSD for native Serial Advanced
Technology Attachment (SATA) hard disk drive drop-in replacement with enhanced
performance, reliability, ruggedness and power savings.
Since there are no rotating platters, moving heads, or fragile actuators, unnecessary
delays due to spin-up time or positional seek time that can slow down the storage
subsystem significantly, are absent. The Intel X25-V SATA SSD enables fast read/write
access times and a significant I/O and throughput performance improvement as
compared to rotating media or hard disk drives.
This document describes the specifications of our new addition to the Solid State Drive
product family: .Intel X25-V SATA SSD in the 2.5” form factor.
1.1
Product Overview
The Intel X25-V SATA SSDs primarily target SATA based client PCs, highly rugged
mobile client devices, as well as thin and light, mini/sub-notebooks. Key attributes
include high performance, low power, increased system responsiveness, high reliability
and enhanced ruggedness as compared to standard mobile SATA hard drives. Intel
X25-V SATA SSDs are available in the 2.5” form factor that are electrically,
mechanically, and software compatible with existing 2.5” Serial ATA slots and cables.

3.5.1
Nonrecoverable Read Errors
The nonrecoverable read error rate will not exceed one sector in the specified number
of bits read. In the extremely unlikely event of a nonrecoverable read error, the drive
will report it as a read failure to the host; the sector in error is considered corrupt and
is not returned to the host.
3.5.2
Mean Time Between Failure
The Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) is estimated based on Telcordia* methodology
and demonstrated through Reliability Demonstration Test (RDT).
3.5.3
Power On/Off Cycles
Defined as power being removed from the drive, and then restored. Most host systems
remove power from the drive when entering suspend and hibernate as well as on a
system shutdown.
3.5.4
Minimum Useful Life
The drive will have a minimum of five years of useful life under typical client workloads
with up to 20 GB of host writes per day.
3.5.5
Insertion Cycles
The drive will support up to 250 insertion/removal cycles on a SATA/power cable.

Notes:
1.
All pins are in a single row, with a 1.27 mm (0.050”) pitch.
2.
Pins P1, P2 and P3 are connected together, although they are not connected internally to the device. The host may put
3.3 V on these pins.
3.
The mating sequence are:
• the ground pins P4-P6, P10, P12 and the 5v power pin P7.
• the signal pins and the rest of the 5V power pins P8-P9.
4.
Ground connectors P4 and P12 may contact before the other 1st mate pins in both the power and signal connectors to
discharge ESD in a suitably configured backplane connector.
5.
Power pins P7, P8,and P9 are internally connected to one another within the device.
6.
The host may ground P11 if it is not used for Device Activity Signal (DAS).
7.
Pins P13, P14 and P15 are connected together, although they are not connected internally to the device. The host may put
12 V on these pins.
5.3
Hot Plug Support
Hot Plug insertion and removal are supported in the presence of a proper connector
and appropriate operating system (OS) support as described in the SATA 2.6
specification. This product supports Asynchronous Signal Recovery and will issue an
unsolicited COMINIT when first mated with a powered connector to guarantee reliable
detection by a host system without hardware device detection.
