High Temperature Storage Test

 

For industrial devices, having storage that functions in high temperature environments is crucial. Storage that doesn’t work in extreme temperatures could cause problematic failures in the field for critical devices, including applications in healthcare, travel, and automation. When purchasing industrial grade flash storage, choose a manufacturer who conducts high temperature storage tests on their memory devices. A high temperature storage test is the only way to confirm that a memory device adheres to industrial level extended temperature standards.

 

What do high temperature storage tests evaluate?

Under JEDEC standards, a high temperature storage test should be used for qualification, screening, monitoring, or evaluation of solid state drives (SSDs). The test is conducted by exposing the SSD to extreme, accelerated temperatures. The test determines the time an SSD takes to fail under high temperatures in storage conditions and thermally active failure mechanisms. This information can be useful to determine or confirm the temperature range of a memory device. The test results can also show if temperature exposure could be to blame for unexpected failures. It is important to note that testing can be destructive to the memory device or the associated packaging.

 

Who conducts high temperature storage tests?

This kind of testing should be completed by your storage device manufacturer. They will qualify products before they are sold, and they should also be able to assist with further temperature testing if you are having unusually high rates of failure or other issues with your storage devices. These tests will allow you to determine if temperature is to blame for these failures. Before you purchase industrial grade storage, make sure that the manufacturer you are choosing has conducted this kind of testing and has qualified your devices appropriately.

 

What is the target temperature range?

For industrial grade memory, the expected temperature range is -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C. This temperature range should be appropriate for both operating and storage conditions. Some industrial products exist with a wider range of temperatures for storage. Check with your manufacturer if you believe that your devices will need a greater temperature range for storage.
