A Look at the Features of Industrial Grade microSD Card Designs

 

microSD cards offer high-endurance NAND flash storage in a small form factor that is ideal for devices with a low amount of available space. Industrial grade microSD card designs feature SLC NAND flash for the highest possible degree of data security. With design features set by the Secure Digital Association, microSD cards offer the broad compatibility associated with SD cards in a small size for today’s increasingly compact device designs. These are some of the key features you should know about.

 

SLC NAND Flash

Single-level cell NAND flash, or SLC, is the most reliable form of NAND flash storage available. With SLC flash, one bit of data is stored on each cell. This style of storage has several advantages. It reduces the chance of data loss due to power fluctuations and offers the fastest available read and write speeds. There is a lower chance of cross-cell interference. Perhaps most importantly to some users, SLC NAND flash offers superior durability and longevity over other kinds of NAND flash storage. It’s not unusual for SLC NAND flash to deliver 20 to 30 times the write cycles of MLC flash, and even more when compared to TLC and other lower grade flash models.

 

High Storage Capacities

Despite their small size, microSD cards are able to provide large amounts of storage. Industrial grade microSD card products are available in capacities ranging from 128MB to 16GB. This means the cards can store large data files, such as HD videos, with ease. The variety of capacity options means you can find the most efficient fit for your industrial application.

 

Customization Options

A benefit of microSD cards that attracts many OEMs is the customization options. With a microSD card, you can opt for unique formatting, data loading options, additional testing, laser etching, pad printing, and much more. These options allow you to ensure that the microSD cards you get work precisely as you need them to in your device design.
