Choosing a microSD Memory Supplier

Delkin Devices microSD/microSDHC

 

The microSD memory card, sometimes called micro SD, is a popular, high-endurance flash storage solution that is widely used in both commercial and industrial grade applications. The format was originally introduced in 1999, and was designed as a NAND flash storage solution for portable devices that had the features those devices needed, like low power consumption, a high degree of reliability, and a small size to fit into constrained spaces. Design specifications for microSD cards are set by the Secure Digital Association, which ensures that OEMs know the specifications of the microSD card they are getting, regardless of who is manufacturing it. However, your microSD memory supplier still matters. If you are in the market for industrial microSD cards, here are some tips for selecting a microSD memory supplier.

 

Multiple Capacity Options

There is no one-size-fits-all memory solution. When you choose a supplier for your microSD cards, make sure you choose one who offers cards with a variety of different capacities. This will allow you to select the exact amount of storage you need for your application. You’ll never have to worry about taking risks by purchasing less storage than you may need or paying for an excessive amount of storage that is just not necessary for your application. In addition, if you choose a supplier with multiple options and later decide to redesign the application with different capacity needs, you won’t have to go looking for a brand new supplier.

 

Grade Options

It’s important to use the right grade of microSD card for your application. If you have an industrial application, it’s especially important to ensure you’re using an industrial grade microSD card. This will ensure that your card comes with the features you need, such as expanded temperature ranges, a controlled bill of materials, and tolerance to shock and vibration in rugged conditions. Using commercial grade storage in industrial applications could put your data at risk.

 

Customization Options

For many OEMs, customization is a critical part of storage. Your microSD memory supplier should be able to offer you a range of customization options. The cards should be customizable to suit your application and host-specific requirements. You should also be able to easily customize things like data loading, testing, formatting, packaging, pad printing, and more.
