Finding the Right Memory Solution for Your Industrial Application

 

When it comes to finding memory for an industrial application, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. There are several different memory solutions available, and of course, it is important to find one that meets the specific needs of industrial users. This means choosing memory that can deliver the capacity, speed, and data security needed for industrial applications, even when used in rugged operating conditions. This information will help you make the right choice.

 

NAND Flash Memory

The memory solution that is best for industrial applications is one designed with NAND flash memory. NAND flash memory uses electrical charges of different voltages to read and write data. Used in embedded storage devices, NAND flash memory is available in multiple formats, including SLC, MLC, and TLC.

 

For industrial applications, SLC is usually the best memory solution. SLC stands for single-level cell and refers to flash memory in which one bit of data is stored per cell. This design makes this form of flash memory the fastest and the most reliable. SLC flash memory is able to tolerate rugged operating conditions, including those with extreme temperatures or temperature fluctuations and high levels of shock and vibration. SLC flash memory has the longest lifespan of all forms of flash memory, which also makes it a good fit for industrial users.

 

Memory Options

There are several different memory solutions for industrial applications. SSDs, or solid state drives, are alternatives to HDDs, or hard disk drives. They are not vulnerable to mechanical failures or service disruptions due to shock and vibration. Many SSDs use the SATA interface for easy compatibility.

 

SD cards are NAND flash memory devices designed using specifications from the Secure Digital Association. They are available in a range of capacities. CompactFlash and embedded USBs are also available in a variety of capacities. The best way to find the right memory solution for your application is to discuss your device’s design and your operational needs with a qualified representative at Delkin.

 

Controlled BOMs

When you are looking for a memory solution for an industrial application, be sure to select one with a controlled BOM, or bill of materials. With a controlled BOM, the firmware, controller, and other critical components are locked, so they can’t be changed without a new product number being issued. This helps to ensure that your application won’t experience in-the-field failures.

 

Delkin can help you explore all of the memory solutions that are available and help you pick the right one for your specific application. Contact our product team today for more information.
