Questions Answered about Industrial MLC microSD

 

Industrial MLC microSD cards combine the benefits of MLC microSD technology with features that are usually reserved for SLC-based products. Whether you’re looking for an MLC microSD for a dashboard cam or a high-capacity video system, an industrial grade product will give you the reliability you need. Many customers have questions when selecting an industrial MLC microSD. The answers to these frequently asked questions will help you select the right product for your device.

 

What is an industrial MLC microSD card?

microSD cards are the smallest available version of Secure Digital (SD) cards. All memory cards with SD in their name are built using the specifications set by the Secure Digital Association. They use NAND flash memory, which is a non-volatile form of embedded memory that relies on electrical charges to perform read and write operations. microSD cards are popular in devices that only have a small amount of physical space available, but still need reliable storage with significant capacity.

 

MLC microSD cards are designed with multi-level cell flash, which means that two bits of data are stored on each cell within the memory device. This is in contrast to SLC (single-level cell) SD cards, in which one bit of data is stored on each cell, and TLC (triple-level cell), in which three or more bits of data are stored on each cell.

 

What are the benefits of industrial grade MLC microSD cards?

Many microSD cards are designed for the consumer market, so they don’t have the same kinds of features as industrial grade products. An industrial microSD card designed with MLC flash can provide the ruggedness and advanced functionality required for industrial applications. This means that they work in conditions with extreme temperatures or temperature fluctuations, as well as in conditions in which shock and vibration would be an issue for commercial grade products. For example, an industrial MLC microSD card is a good fit for industrial dashboard cams, since dash-mounted cameras are subject to high levels of vibration.
