32GB Industrial SD Card
If you have ever used a portable device, such as a digital camera or mobile phone, there is a good chance that you have used a device with an SD card. SD, or Secure Digital, cards are an extremely popular form of embedded memory for both consumer and industrial applications. The cards are designed according to standards set by the Secure Digital Association. This allows designers and engineers to know exactly what to expect from an SD card, no matter who the manufacturer is. The 32GB industrial SD card is an SD card with 32GB of memory that is designed for use specifically in industrial devices. Could it be the right choice for your embedded storage needs? Here is what you need to know.
What makes an SD card industrial grade?
Industrial SD cards have unique design features not found in consumer or commercial grade cards. Most importantly, industrial SD cards are typically designed with SLC NAND flash memory. This kind of flash memory, which is also known as single-level cell, is memory in which one bit of data is stored per cell. It is the fastest form of flash memory available, and has a significantly longer lifespan than other forms of flash. It is also considered to be the most secure type of flash, and can tolerate environments with extreme temperatures and high levels of shock and vibration.
It is important to note that some SD cards used in industrial applications feature MLC, or multi-level cell, flash memory. With this form of flash, two bits of data are stored per cell. Though it has a shorter lifespan and is slower than SLC flash, when MLC flash is used in a utility grade SD card, it features extended temperature ranges and high shock and vibration tolerances. At Delkin, 32GB SD cards are available in both utility and industrial formats.
What are the benefits of the SD format?
There are several reasons why SD cards have remained popular since their introduction in 1999. They offer high-capacity memory in a small form factor, so they are ideal for portable devices. SD cards are reliable and compatible with many applications, so they are easy to integrate into a variety of designs. They also offer low power consumption, which is important to many industrial applications.
