Samsung has announced that it has developed a new SSD for netbooks that uses a mini-card SATA design. The design allows the SSD to be used as a mini storage drive and to go into computers with the capability of a second drive to boost performance.

The SSD uses the SATA 3.0GB/s interface and is about 80% smaller than a conventional 2.5-inch SSD. Samsung says that it is working to standardize the new form factor and its pin layout. The SSD will be offered in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB densities.

The mini-card SSD is 30mm wide and 51mm high with a weight of 8.5g. The thickness of the drive is 3.75mm and it consumes 0.3 watts of power making it appropriate for very small netbooks and other electronic devices.
