The SSD products support multiple management functions including 'TRIM' feature to boost speed by wiping data internally. It also has an 'End-to-End Protection' feature to prevent data loss and reinforces security of the data by using encryption algorithm of 128bit AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) to ensure the security of the data.

SK Hynix has been providing mSATA (mini-Serial Advanced Technology Attachment) 32/64/128GB SSDs to the PC OEMs since the end of the last year. The newly launched client SSD has been released in Japan and it will soon be introduced in Korea and the US.

According to market research firm iSuppli, the outlook for SSD shipment is expected to be 46 million units in this year. It also forecasts the annual average growth of 63% from year 2011 to 2016 due to the accelerated growth of the various mobile applications.
