Exploring the Benefits of Industrial Grade Storage

Industrial Grade Flash Storage for Industrial Applications

 

OEM designers face a range of options for storage. One of the most important distinctions to consider is the grade of the product. Commercial and consumer grade storage is ideal for the retail applications in which they are generally found, but industrial-level systems require industrial grade storage. Industrial grade storage provides the stability and reliability that OEMs need their applications to have in the field. Although there is a price difference between industrial grade products and commercial or consumer grade memory, it is a price worth paying in many instances. Consider these benefits of industrial grade storage:

 

SLC NAND Flash Memory

SLC NAND Flash memory is standard in industrial grade applications. SLC is more reliable than MLC Flash memory, because it only records one bit of data per cell and can undergo up to 30 times more endurance cycles. SLC NAND Flash memory has significantly fewer issues with data retention and fewer disturbances in the read cycle. This kind of reliability is essential for industrial applications, as data loss can cause critical failures in healthcare, transportation, and other sensitive industries.

 

Controlled Bill of Materials

A controlled BOM is one of the most important benefits of industrial grade storage. In consumer and commercial grade storage, it is normal for storage manufacturers to change parts within the storage system to save money. The problem for industrial users is that any change in parts can lead to unanticipated issues with applications in the field. Industrial grade products have a controlled BOM, which means that no parts changes will occur while a product number is active. When new products are introduced, users will be notified so that they can make a final purchase.

 

Rugged Construction

Industrial applications are often used in environments in which there are temperature extremes or where mechanical shocks and vibrations are common. Industrial grade products are designed to work in these demanding environments without loss of function.
