Conformal Coating Benefits

 

Memory cards and SSDs are often exposed to environmental conditions that could cause damage, such as moisture and dust. Even the most stringently produced embedded storage products are vulnerable to damage from this kind of exposure. The longevity of the memory device could be impacted, or damage could lead to a complete failure of the device. Fortunately, there is a way to protect the embedded components and delicate circuitry: conformal coating. There are many conformal coating benefits to consider. Continue reading to learn more about conformal coating for memory cards and other storage devices.

 

Prevention of Moisture Damage

Oftentimes, memory cards and drives are used in environments in which there are high levels of moisture. For example, devices used in trains are often exposed to high humidity levels, while medical devices may be exposed to liquids and potential spills. Moisture can cause a significant amount of damage to these devices and can even render them useless. Adding conformal coating means that there is an extra layer of protection in place that can protect the vulnerable inner components from moisture damage.

 

Increased Shock and Vibration Cushioning

One of the reasons why designers choose industrial grade memory cards and SSDs is because they are designed to handle the increased shock and vibration that are typical in industrial operating environments. However, rugged conditions can still push industrial grade memory to its limits. Conformal coating creates additional cushioning to help embedded storage used in rugged conditions withstand shock and vibration that could otherwise lead to failures in read and write operations.

 

Longer Life for Embedded Storage

The protection that conformal coating provides from these and other operating risks means that the storage device itself will have a longer operating life. By reducing the risk of damage from environmental conditions, conformal coating alleviates the concern over damage-related failures and allows users to more easily predict and manage the life of their storage devices.
