High Endurance SD Card Facts

UTILITY SD

 

A high endurance SD card is the ultimate in dependability for industrial applications. This is the reason you can find them in so many industrial applications that require reliable, long-lasting data storage. microSD cards—the smallest form of SD card available and a popular form of flash storage for both consumer and industrial devices with minimal space for storage—deliver the same endurance as full-size SD cards and are an important solution for a marketplace in which devices are continually getting smaller. Are you considering a high endurance SD card for your industrial application? Here is what you need to know about this rugged, embedded storage option.

 

High endurance is a key characteristic of all types of SD cards.

SD cards have a reputation for their endurance levels. Whether you choose a high endurance SD card, miniSD card, or microSD card, you can count on getting a product that is capable of providing reliable performance in even the most demanding applications, such as high-definition video. The actual endurance of an SD card depends on several different factors, including how it is used and whether it is configured with SLC NAND flash or MLC NAND flash. However, you can expect thousands of hours of usage out of any kind of SD card. When you purchase a card, Delkin can give you a personalized estimate of the endurance you should expect.

 

The specifications for SD are standard, so you always know what to expect.

Every kind of SD card must follow design specifications set by the Secure Digital Association. These specs are only available to members of the group, and anyone who wants to produce SD cards has to follow them. The benefit of this to OEMs is that you always know exactly what to expect when you get an SD card, so you don’t have to worry about compatibility issues when you need replacements.

 

SD cards have built-in features that enhance performance.

SD cards come with integrated error correcting code (ECC) and advanced wear leveling. Both of these features provide enhanced endurance and functionality. ECC can detect errors so that major failures may be prevented, while wear leveling ensures that the NAND flash chip is used at its peak level of efficiency.
