1.8", MO-297 slim & mSATA SSD manufacturers list
Although not nearly as crowded as the 2.5" SSD market - over 50 companies have, at one time or another marketed 1.8" SSDs.

These are mostly aimed at the notebook SSD market (the Cinderella part of the SSD market), the embedded industrial SSD market and more recently in the enterprise SSD market (in RAID systems).

The most common interfaces in this form factor are SATA and PATA although recently some vendors have also launched SAS SSDs in the 1.8" footprint.

Waitan has embeddable industrial grade ejector for 1.8" microSATA SSDs
Editor:- August 5, 2015 - I wasn't really expecting to see any major product innovations in the embedded 1.8" SSD market - but even long established markets can spawn specialized developments.
Something like that can be seen in the shape of the recent launch by Waitan of a patent pending 1.8" microSATA SSD ejector product with dual propel pedals for smooth and even ejection for use on PCBs.
