A Look at Legacy Electronics Memory

 

Although conventional wisdom dictates using the newest technology possible, it is not always feasible to constantly upgrade to new designs. For many industrial users, constant upgrades are just not realistic. For this reason, they need to rely on legacy technology. Using legacy products means they don’t have to update their design or take a chance on how a new design will work in their applications. However, a challenge with legacy electronics is finding the right kind of memory. Even with a legacy design, users want the best available memory—or they may be using legacy memory cards and want to stick with them. In each case, Delkin can help with your legacy electronics memory needs.

 

Finding the Right Legacy Electronics Memory

One of the biggest legacy memory questions Delkin gets is how to extend the lifespan of a SATA-based device. Although SATA is no longer the fastest interface available and many newer devices are being designed with different interfaces, there is also a long list of products that are still working as intended that are built with the SATA interface, and still need SATA memory products. Delkin supplies SATA-based memory for each generation of SATA. We also provide SATA and mSATA for legacy electronics, so you can get the embedded memory size that you need for your design.

 

Every device is different, so the best way to find memory for legacy electronics is to talk to one of the experts at Delkin to get personalized advice.

 

Legacy Product Constraints

When choosing a legacy memory product, it is important to realize that the design of the legacy electronics device will dictate the ultimate speed of the memory. For example, if you have a SATA II interface, upgrading to SATA III memory will not give you SATA III speeds. SATA III is backward compatible with previous versions, so you can get the additional benefits of upgraded memory, but you will not see increased speed.
