Technical Success Stories: SMART Triggers

“Data loss on our product is very expensive, is there a way to predict the end of a card lifespan before it happens?”- True Customer Stories  This story starts with a painful fact, all embedded storage no matter how well optimized for the usage model, at some point will come to the end of its lifespan.  Due to the technology used in all flash storage, there is a useful life that has limits.  Delkin has created a business around maximizing Read More...

Industrial CompactFlash Cards for Aerospace

IntroductionIndustrial CompactFlash cards have been used for approximately two decades in various aerospace applications requiring an extremely reliable data storage device. These flash cards were originally designed to offer a precise flash storage solution for both industrial and consumer applications, but have been ruggedized and customized specifically for the aerospace industry. Delkin Devices Industrial CompactFlash Cards are designed with SLC or MLC NAND flash that features the highest level of endurance and utmost reliability. That's why these flash storage devices Read More...

Managing Errors in NAND Flash Based Devices

GeneralNAND flash is the proper choice for mass storages devices. Its use allows large storage devices at relatively low cost. Nor flash was traditionally used in embedded systems, to hold boot code and data, however, it is inefficient for holding large amounts of data.In today’s systems, having a Nor flash (protected) bios supporting system boot from USB or SATA/IDE drives, SD cards and CF cards is now the choice for design, and these devices are typically NAND flash based.NAND Read More...

Technical Success Stories: Delkin Matches Product & Testing to Unique Environmental Requirements

“We are having failures of our dashboard cameras in the field, the problem seems to occur upon startup and the CF card seems to be the problem”- True Customer Stories  CompactFlash as a form factor has been a stable, industrial, storage medium used by many embedded product OEM’s for more than 20 years.  The standard uses a simple, 50 pin connector designed to mimic a HDD in its interface.  The ruggedness and simplicity of the design has made it one Read More...

What Are the Top Differences Between Industrial Grade and Consumer Grade Flash Storage?

Perhaps your organization has just decided that a flash storage device is necessary for your new industrial application prototype, or you just need a perfect replacement to the flash storage that’s been used in an industrial host. Whichever the case, there are many flash storage options in the market to choose from, with all of them falling under two general categories - industrial grade flash storage and consumer grade flash storage.However, learning about the differences between these two grades Read More...

Why Delkin Devices Industrial Flash Storage Solutions Enable a Better Healthcare Industry

Healthcare files are big, meaning that simple x-rays are about 8 MB each. When you're talking about one picture for one patient, this might not seem like a lot, but when you consider that a normal brain MRI involves about 230 images, you're quickly looking at several gigabytes of data per patient. Across a healthcare network that spans multiple cities or states, the amount of data that needs to be stored becomes immense.That data also needs to be transferable Read More...

Industrial IoT Applications Requiring Industrial Flash Storage

Across the globe, many industries are on the crossover of revolution and many manufacturers have a new priority for their business. Numerous technologies based on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) are expanding exponentially and becoming more important in industries such as manufacturing, energy, healthcare and retail. The IIoT has sparked a new wave of transformation and is quickly changing the way we do things.One of the biggest challenges about the IIoT systems is that they generate massive amounts Read More...

Technical Success Stories: Delkin mSATA Parts Allow Longer Application Life Cycle

“Our host uses mSATA, and has for years.  We were in trouble when our supplier notified us our part had been discontinued”- True Customer Stories  Most new memory standards and form factors used in embedded products start out as solutions for consumer driven markets. mSATA was designed to be used in tablets, laptops and other mobile devices that require a small replacement for a disk drive or SSD. While mSATA is technically an SSD, its small size and connector are Read More...

True Customer Stories: Industrial vs. Consumer Storage Solutions

“We were not aware that Consumer SSDs are not a good “drop in” for our industrial device”- True Customer StoriesConsumer storage products are advertised extensively to the point that those brands are often recognized first and foremost when considering a storage device for an Industrial, embedded solution.  There are many reasons why this might not be a good idea, and understanding the usage model of the storage is a good first step to choose the right solution.Consumer solutions focus Read More...

Technical Success Stories: Flash Endurance and SMART Commands

 “Our product sells for under $200, we could not afford an expensive card, we just assumed we had to have some failures”- Technical Success StoriesYou would not put jet fuel in your moped, so an inexpensive product would not normally come with an expensive SLC based card.  No one is going to pay $60 to put an SD card into something that costs $99 or even $199, the math just does not work.  Such is the reality of Industrial Read More...
