Industrial Flash Storage for Extreme Conditions

 

When you have an application that will be used in extreme conditions, it’s essential to ensure that you choose a rugged storage device. With an industrial grade flash storage product, you can rest assured that your data will remain secure, even in demanding operating conditions. When project engineers and OEMs require industrial grade flash storage devices that will withstand the effects of temperature fluctuations, vibrations, dust, and shock, they often turn to Delkin’s industrial flash storage for extreme conditions.

 

Applications that Involve Extreme Conditions

Although the average consumer may not require flash data devices that can withstand extreme conditions, this is not the case for OEMs who are managing projects in sectors such as healthcare, aerospace, the military, and transportation.

 

In the transportation sector, flash storage devices must be resilient enough to protect data despite significant vibrations and shock. Dust is also a major concern, as are the extremes of temperature that vehicles may encounter. Shock, temperature fluctuations, and vibrations are also significant issues that can affect the performance of data storage devices being used in aerospace applications, whether for airplanes or space shuttles.

 

Temperature Ranges for Industrial Flash Storage

OEMs understand that temperature is one of the most impactful factors that can affect data storage retention. High temperatures in particular tend to induce premature data loss and device failure. In the case of solid state drives (SSDs), this is because data retention is achieved by trapping electrons in the floating gate. As cycles of electrons flow into the floating gate in programming mode or flow out of the floating gate in erasing mode, the tunnel oxide sustains wear. Over time, the tunnel oxide will dramatically weaken. When the drive is in use and hot temperatures develop, the electrons have a tendency to leak out. This results in a higher rate of bit errors, which consequently leads to uncorrectable problems.

 

The same problem is seen with SSDs that are stored at high temperatures. Unlike many other flash technologies, the industrial grade flash storage devices from Delkin are rated to withstand a wide temperature range, which is typically between negative 40 degrees Celsius and 85 degrees Celsius.
