Questions to Ask When You Choose Between NAND Memory Manufacturers

 

NAND memory is a common component of many storage devices, particularly those used in industrial applications. There are many NAND memory manufacturers, but not all NAND memory devices are the same—and not all manufacturers can deliver the right products for your needs. Before you decide which NAND flash memory supplier to go with, it is helpful to ask certain questions. That way, you can get a better understanding of the service they provide and determine whether they’re a good fit for your needs. Ask these questions before you place your NAND memory order:

 

What grade of NAND flash memory do you offer?

This question is one of the biggest considerations you should keep in mind when choosing between NAND memory manufacturers. Commercial and consumer grade NAND memory is found in devices that are used by consumers, such as cellphones and notebook computers. Typically, these feature MLC or TLC NAND flash memory, which offers high capacities, but is less reliable than the highest grade of NAND—SLC flash.

 

SLC NAND memory is typically found in industrial grade devices. This kind of memory is used in industrial applications in automation, transportation, healthcare, and other industries in which critical information is stored. Industrial NAND memory also has an extended temperature range so that it can be used in rugged conditions. Not all manufacturers provide this grade of memory, so be sure you understand the options that are available.

 

Do you offer customization options?

Do you need NAND memory cards with specialty packaging and labeling? Do your memory devices need special testing or other non-standard features? If so, then you will need a NAND manufacturer that provides white box storage products—something not every manufacturer provides. It’s important to ask this question and understand the exact customizations that are available.

 

Can you help me select the right parts?

Choosing NAND memory is a big decision for all designers and engineers. Selecting the wrong memory can derail application development and cause significant problems in the field. Choose a manufacturer who can help you select the best fit for your design, so you can avoid problems in the future.
