Finding Storage Solutions for Industrial Applications

Whether they’re helping to provide access to critical patient records for doctors in emergency situations or helping a train travel down the track safely and efficiently, industrial applications have to work flawlessly every time. For this reason, embedded storage in industrial applications has to be reliable, trustworthy, and fast. The same embedded storage that works perfectly well in consumer products in the commercial market may not be able to stand up to the demands of industrial applications. It is essential to choose storage that was specifically designed for use in these critical applications so that you can rely upon it working the right way, every time.

 

What are industrial applications?

Industrial applications are those used in business or government, often in rugged operating conditions. You can find these applications across many different industries, including healthcare, transportation, military, automation, gaming, and communication. Oftentimes, these applications must work in conditions with extreme temperatures, large temperature fluctuations, and strong levels of shock and vibration. Because of the number of systems that may rely on any one industrial application and because of the operating conditions, there are unique concerns when it comes to choosing embedded storage for these devices.

 

What kind of storage is used in industrial applications?

SLC NAND flash memory is the foundation of industrial grade storage. This kind of storage allows one bit of data to be stored per cell, which means that every piece of data is more secure and can be both read and written faster than with other forms of storage. The SLC NAND flash memory used in industrial embedded storage is also designed to withstand temperature extremes and fluctuations, as well as the kinds of shock and vibration that are common in the working environments of industrial applications.

 

What are the other benefits of industrial grade storage?

Industrial grade storage also has benefits beyond its SLC NAND flash. It has a controlled bill of materials, so that OEMs don’t have to worry about an unexpected change to a critical component causing operational issues. It also has a longer lifespan than other storage grades and can generally be customized in a long list of different ways.
