Answers to Your Questions about High Endurance USB Flash Drive Options

Delkin Devices Industrial USB Flash Drive

 

One of the most recognizable forms of digital storage available is the USB flash drive. These devices are used for a wide variety of applications, ranging from consumer grade data transfers to industrial grade storage. However, not all USB drives are created equal. Low-cost USB flash drives typically do not have enough storage—or reliability—to work for industrial applications. Industrial users instead need a high endurance USB flash drive in order to get the number of read and write operations they require, as well as the ability to tolerate rugged operating conditions. The following answers to questions OEMs in the market for a high endurance USB flash drive often have may help you determine if this kind of removable storage device could be right for your application.

 

How can I tell if a USB drive is high endurance?

High endurance USB flash drives typically feature SLC flash technology. SLC, or single-level cell, flash technology is designed to save one bit of data per cell. It is considered to be the most secure and the fastest form of flash memory available, which is why you will find it in nearly every kind of industrial grade storage device. SLC flash has the lowest risk of data corruption during write operations, since only one bit of data can be written per cell. Plus, it offers the longest lifespan of any kind of flash, which is particularly important for industrial users who need to carefully manage the longevity of their storage devices.

 

Can high endurance USB flash drives be customized?

The answer to this question depends on the manufacturer of the USB flash drive. If customization is important to you, choose your manufacturer wisely. At Delkin, we provide a full range of customization options, including customization of the conformal coating, case colors, serialization, pad printing, settings, and content pre-loading. Our team can help you choose the specifications you need so you can get the most from your USB drives.

 

What happens when the design of the USB flash drive changes?

The good thing about choosing an industrial grade, high endurance USB flash drive is that it will come with a locked bill of materials, or locked BOM. With a locked BOM, none of the components that could affect compatibility or functionality will be changed without advanced notice and a change in product number. This ensures that you will not experience any wide-ranging, in-the-field failures.
