How Is Industrial microSD Used in Clinical Diagnostics Applications?

 

Clinical diagnostics are critical to meeting patient needs. Without the appropriate diagnostics, providers will not be able to establish an effective treatment plan and manage patient care. Diagnostics involve managing a large amount of data accurately and may also call for the storage of large image files. For these reasons, it is essential that all devices that are used for diagnostics have an adequate embedded storage system. This is why industrial microSD cards are so frequently used in clinical diagnostics applications. Here is a closer look at the use of industrial microSD cards for this purpose.

 

Industrial microSD Card Basics

microSD cards are the smallest available version of the SD card. SD cards, which are manufactured according to strict specifications set by the Secure Digital Association, are used for embedded storage inside a wide range of portable devices. They are widely embraced for their broad compatibility and because OEMs and designers feel confident in them. OEMs know the core specifications will be the same, regardless of where they get their cards.

 

Industrial microSD cards are designed to withstand rugged operating conditions, including temperature extremes, shock, and vibration. They are designed with SLC flash, or single-level cell flash. This kind of flash, in which one bit of data is stored per cell, is the fastest and most reliable form of flash memory available.

 

Industrial microSD Cards in Clinical Diagnostics Applications

There are a number of different needs that industrial microSD cards can fulfill in clinical diagnostics applications. First, many diagnostics applications are housed in small, portable devices with a limited amount of physical space for an embedded storage card. microSD cards were specifically designed to provide powerful storage in a small form factor, so they are a natural fit for clinical diagnostics applications.

 

Clinical diagnostics applications also require a high level of storage capacity. An application may need to take several data measurements in quick succession and then store that information for later review, or it may need to hold high-resolution images that clearly display internal structures for diagnostic purposes. Industrial microSD cards are small in size, but they are extremely powerful and can offer storage capacities of up to 16GB. Data stored on industrial microSD cards are as secure as possible, which is necessary for both patient management needs and to adhere to HIPAA guidelines.
