How OEMs Can Use MicroSD Cards for a Wide Range of Applications
Thanks to their versatility, exceptional data capacity, and small form factor, microSD cards are an ideal choice for many types of applications. These small, yet durable storage solutions can instantly enhance data capabilities. Here’s a quick look at the possibilities for incorporating microSD cards into OEM applications.
MicroSD Cards in the Automotive Industry
Motor vehicles continue to grow increasingly complex, with onboard computing systems that demand rugged and reliable storage options. In the automotive industry, microSD cards are the ideal storage solution. They are durable enough to withstand the rigors of challenging road conditions. They also have the capacity necessary to work in high-performance applications, like responsive event recorders, high-resolution maps, and complex informational and entertainment systems. Many auto OEMs also prefer to use microSD cards because they are capable of withstanding extremes of temperature, they have a low power consumption rate, and their small size supports flexibility within automotive design.
MicroSD Cards in the Security and Emergency Preparedness Industries
OEMs often turn to microSD cards when they need a reliable, yet compact data storage solution for applications in the security and emergency preparedness industries. In many cases, microSD cards carry the entire operating system. Some of them have up to 64 GB of data storage capacity, making them ideal to hold the OS for devices like biometric authentication systems. MicroSD cards can also be used in natural disaster detection and early warning systems, and in fire detection equipment.
MicroSD Cards in the Healthcare Industry
Embedded Flash memory meets a critical need in the healthcare industry. OEMs in the medical fields rely on microSD cards to provide compact data storage solutions for mobile medical devices, electronic health record systems, and even bedside infotainment systems for patients. MicroSD cards also excel when embedded within diagnostic equipment, clinical laboratory workstations, patient monitoring equipment, and intelligent outpatient service systems.
