What does mSATA mean?

mSATA Mini-SATA (mSATA) or mini-Serial Advanced Technology Attachment, is a low-profile interface connector that enables a Serial ATA (SATA) to effectively integrate into a small form-factor drive like Solid State Drive (SSD) used in compact devices, such as laptops, netbooks, and mobile devices. mSATA drives are about the size of a business card and use the same plug and socket as the Mini PCI card, but the data signals are different.
