SATA-IO member companies receive many of benefits as part of their membership package. One of the more valued benefits is early access to new specification revisions prior to their publication. With the ability to closely monitor new SATA technologies and developments from inception to ratification, member companies have a leg up on non-members to upgrade their products based on the latest spec update.

Display Your SATA Solutions at Flash Memory Summit 2016

SATA-IO will exhibit at the 2016 Flash Memory Summit (FMS), August 9-11 in Santa Clara, CA. We’re planning to showcase the continued evolution of the SATA specification as well as the wide variety of SATA-based solutions. These products include SATA SSDs, SMR HDDs, SATA M.2 cards, mSATA and Solid State Hybrid Drives (SSHDs).
Additionally, we recognize that many of our member companies will be exhibiting and announcing new SATA solutions at the show. Be sure to send us your official product announcements ahead of time and we’ll promote your news on the SATA-IO website and to FMS attendees onsite. 

If your company is interested in providing a SATA product display for our booth at FMS or would like to share an upcoming announcement, contact the SATA-IO press team: sata@nereus-worldwide.com
