Facts about the 16GB Industrial microSD Card

S316APG49-U3000-3 - SD - microSD - 16GB - MLC

 

SD, or Secure Digital, cards were introduced to the market in 1999. Since then, thanks to a range of updates and redesigns, they have remained an in-demand storage format, particularly for mobile devices. One of the reasons why SD cards have remained popular is that they offer reliable storage in a small form factor. However, as devices have become increasingly small, the need for an even smaller form of storage has grown. This is where the microSD card enters the picture. These cards have all of the benefits of standard SD cards, but are even smaller in size, meeting the needs of today’s small devices. For industrial applications, 16GB industrial microSD cards are a popular choice. Here are the facts about these embedded storage cards.

 

microSD card specifications are determined by the Secure Digital Association.

One key component of the enduring popularity of SD cards is the fact that designers and engineers always know exactly what to expect when they use these cards for memory. That is because the specifications are set by the Secure Digital Association. All cards that are SD cards, including microSD cards, follow these guidelines. No matter what manufacturer sells a specific SD card, you always know exactly what you are getting and that you can use the cards interchangeably in your devices.

 

Industrial microSD cards feature SLC flash memory.

SLC NAND flash memory, or single-level cell flash, is flash memory in which one bit of data is stored per cell. Because each cell only holds a single bit of data, this kind of flash memory is the fastest available for both read and write operations. SLC flash memory is also the most secure form of flash memory and offers extended temperature ranges and a high tolerance to shock and vibration. For industrial applications, SLC memory is used because of its reliability and security for mission critical data.

 

Delkin’s 16GB industrial microSD card features a locked BOM.

For industrial users, a locked BOM is a significant advantage. With a locked BOM, no critical component of the microSD card, including the controller and firmware, will be changed without the release of a new product number. This prevents in-the-field failures from occurring due to unanticipated performance issues.
