Are You in the Market for a 512MB USB Flash Drive?

Industrial USB - Delkin Devices

 

USB flash drives are familiar storage devices in both the consumer and industrial markets. There are many reasons for their enduring popularity, including their ease of use, wide-ranging compatibility, and variety of storage capacity options. In the industrial storage marketplace, industrial grade USB flash drives are engineered to work in exacting conditions, where temperature, vibration, and shock are unpredictable and where storage has to be fail-safe. The 512MB USB flash drive size is one of the most popular versions available, thanks to its affordability and storage capacity.

 

512MB USB Flash Drive Basics

For industrial grade users, a 512MB USB flash drive is available in SLC flash format. SLC, or single-level cell, is the highest-rated form of flash memory, because it only stores one bit of data per cell. Because only one bit of data is on each cell, it is much less vulnerable to things like data loss due to power failure and read and write errors. It also performs operations extremely quickly, which is ideal for industrial users.

 

Here are some of the technical specifications of 512MB USB flash drives:

  • Operating temperatures: -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C
  • Storage temperatures: -50 degrees C to 85 degrees C
  • Shock: 10g, 11msec – Sawtooth Waveform
  • >2 million hours MTBF at 0 to 25 degrees C/200,000 hours at 60 to 85 degrees C
  • SLC read speeds: Up to 32MB/s
  • SLC write speeds: Up to 30MB/s
  • Vibration: 7.7GRMS, 2-Hz – 1000Hz @ 0.04 G2/Hz/1000Hz – 2000Hz @ 0.01 G2/Hz

 

512MB USB Flash Drive Features

This convenient storage format is available in two lengths—57.6 mm and 67.7 mm, including the cap of the device, so it is adaptable to your needs. The flash drives are compliant with High Speed USB 2.0, and they are also backwards compatible with USB 1.1 ports. Advanced wear leveling and EEC are included to ensure the longest possible lifespan, and there are countless customization options, from serialization to branding.

 

Delkin offers high-quality industrial grade 512MB USB flash drives with all of the customization capabilities that you need to make this reliable form of flash storage work for your application. Contact one of our product team members to learn more.
