Memory Electronics: Selecting the Right Memory for Electronic Applications

 

 

Interfaces Form Factors

 

When building an electronic application that requires embedded storage, one of the biggest decisions designers face is selecting the right memory. Embedded memory has a major impact on the overall functionality and performance of an electronic device, so selecting the right fit is crucial. Because there are so many different kinds of embedded memory, the right solution is not always obvious. It helps to work with a flash memory manufacturer who can guide you through the process of selecting the right kind of storage. Here are some of the factors you should keep in mind when selecting memory electronics.

 

Grade of Flash

The embedded memory used in electronics is typically NAND flash memory. Flash memory has many advantages, including low power consumption and a long lifespan. It is also less prone to the mechanical problems associated with other kinds of memory, since it does not have any moving parts. Flash memory comes in different grades, some of which are designed for industrial use. Other grades are ideal for the commercial market. For electronics used in industrial applications, SLC flash memory is typically the best fit. This is because SLC flash provides an extended temperature range and the longest lifespan available in flash memory.

 

Amount of Storage Required

Memory cards come in a variety of capacities. Although it may seem like opting for the card with the most capacity is the best strategy, doing so could cause unnecessary expense and leave you with a less efficient device. Consider how your application will be used and opt for memory that aligns as closely to your projected storage needs as possible. For example, electronics that store high-resolution photos or videos will need more storage than those that exclusively store text data.

 

Speed Ratings

Flash memory devices come with speed ratings that tell you how quickly data can be read or written. These speeds can have a significant impact on the performance of your device. Keep in mind that speed classes can differ between types of cards and drives, so be sure you understand the specific speed ratings for the type of embedded memory you are considering.
