Small Form Factor PCs and Appliances

Kingston offers a full line of SSDs in a variety of form factors and capacities to meet the small footprint needs of SDD PCs and computer appliances.

Small Form Factor PCs (SDD PCs) are becoming increasingly popular and finding their way into a variety of applications such as home theatre systems, digital signage, desktop computing - and anywhere space is limited. SFF PCs are designed to put as many I/O devices on the motherboard as possible to save space typically consumer by bulky peripheral bays. SSDs are used in SFFs PCs and appliances to increase system performance and improve system reliability over traditional mechanical hard drives.

Embedded Systems (Purpose-Built)

Kingston offers SATA SSDs for small form factor embedded devices in a variety of capacities and models, including form factors such as M.2 2242, M.2 2280, and mSATA. Kingston also offers PCIe NVMe SSDs in the M.2 2280 form factor.

Embedded System designs are more compact and more powerful than ever and often located in remote, hard-to-service locations. Reliability and endurance are key design considerations. By using nonvaloatile Flash storage as an alternative to spinning magentic storage, Kingston solid-state drives help ensure that system data is reliable and continuously available at all times.
