Answering Questions about NAND Memory Manufacturers
When you’re choosing a NAND industrial flash storage device, the manufacturer is likely to be one of the factors that you consider. Despite the demand for NAND flash storage, there are a surprisingly small number of manufacturers in the business. Each puts its own attention on NAND memory customization options and level of working on solutions for OEMs., so it’s important to choose the right NAND memory manufacturer for your application’s needs. Here are the answers to some of the common questions industrial application designers and OEMs have about NAND flash storage manufacturers.
What are primary differences in industrial NAND memory manufacturers?
Manufacturers run NAND memory production lines, and some offer customization options that will be the best solution for industrial applications. These lines are called fabs. The actual production of each fab line is tweaked frequently in response to market demands. Fabs increase production if there is a shortage of NAND flash chips or a spike in new demand, and they scale back when demand is satisfied. For this reason, it is important to verify the supply of the part number ordered and the lead time to get that specific part delivered.
Which manufacturer is leading the way in industrial NAND Flash storage devices?
Delkin Devices is leading the way, for example, they produce 3D NAND flash products, which are becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to provide greater capacity without compromising reliability.
Delkin’s product team can customize your flash storage to match the design of your motherboard specs, from the number of pins to the dimensions and mounting holes. With our customization options, you can ensure your embedded storage is an exact fit for your form factor, every time.
Additional customization options include serialization to work with an OEM product tracking procedures, as well as conformal coating to increase mechanical ruggedness, allowing the industrial Flash storage device to operate in environments with extreme temperature variations. Customization options will allow proper device functionality in application environments that have vibration and humidity levels that would destroy consumer grade product.
