Custom USB FAQs

 

Industrial USB - Delkin DevicesVirtually everyone has had experience with USB storage. It is one of the most recognizable forms of storage on the market today, and is used by everyone from consumers to specialized industrial companies. Designed with flash storage, USBs offer large storage capacities and the convenience of portability. When designed for the industrial market, they also provide upgraded features that are necessary for rugged operating conditions. For industrial users, in addition to portable, external USB flash drives, there are also embedded USBs, or eUSBs, available. Perhaps the most important distinction between consumer and industrial USB flash drives, however, is the option of customization. Custom USB flash drives let industrial users optimize their storage systems to fit individualized designs and form factors. Could a custom USB be the rugged storage solution you’ve been looking for? Consider these answers to frequently asked questions about custom USB drives to help you decide.

 

What exactly is industrial USB flash memory?

USB flash drives are portable storage devices that are small but powerful. They provide the ability to carry large amounts of data in a tiny, handheld drive that operates with a USB interface. They are compatible with any device that has a USB port, which further increases their popularity and usefulness. Plus, these drives use flash memory, so there are no moving parts that could fail and compromise data storage.

 

Industrial USB drives differ from consumer market models in several ways. They are designed with extended temperature ranges and high tolerances for shock and vibration. This means that they can work in rugged operating conditions without the risk of lost data. In addition, these drives feature SLC flash memory, which is the highest possible grade of flash. Only one bit of data is stored per cell with SLC flash memory, so there is little opportunity for data loss in program cycles. SLC flash memory is also the fastest and longest lasting type of flash.

 

What are my options for custom USB flash drives?

It’s not always possible to customize USB flash drives. You have to choose a manufacturer that offers these kinds of custom solutions, such as Delkin. At Delkin, you have your choice of a long list of custom USB designs. We offer multiple housing choices, including several different colors and two lengths. We can also provide the USB without housing with an uncased PCB. Additionally, we can work with your designs for custom labels, pad printing, and serialization or other tracking systems.

 

For industrial customers, one of the most important custom services we offer is custom testing and manufacturing optimization. This is helpful if you have unique application or host requirements. Custom content and imaging loading, plus conformal coating and other mechanical ruggedizations, are available. No matter which customizations you choose, you will get the benefits of Delkin’s locked bill of materials for industrial storage. We will not change any critical component of the USB flash drive that could impact compatibility without advanced notification and a new product number.

 

Don’t let off-the-shelf USB memory compromise your industrial application. Let Delkin work with you to design a customized product that meets your specific needs. Reach out to our team today to start the process.
