Using the Industrial Grade 10-Pin USB DOM

 

eUSBDelkin Devices Embedded USB

 

If you have used a desktop, laptop, smartphone, or other computing device in the last decade, there is a good chance you have used a USB port at some point. USB ports are ubiquitous across devices in both the consumer and industrial markets and are designed so that there is a standard way to connect devices to a host system. Although the USB port is often used for external USB connectors, it can also be used for other kinds of devices, including industrial grade 10-pin USB DOM devices. DOM stands for disk on module, and it is a reliable form of flash storage for embedded USB, or eUSB, applications.

 

10-Pin USB DOM

Oftentimes, motherboards, single-board computers, and embedded systems are designed with 10-pin headers. The 10-pin USB DOM takes advantage of that. Generally, industrial grade 10-pin USB DOMs feature a female connector, which can be plugged into the male 10-pin connector in motherboards. This is useful because many BIOS allow for the use a DOM to boot an operating system or run applications in the same way that a SATA interface or IDE would. USB DOMs come with a hole to be used for secure mounting. Although the connection points themselves are usually sufficient for use in consumer grade devices, using a screw in the mounting hole is helpful for industrial applications. The screw provides extra security for environments in which vibration or shock may be a concern, such as in industrial transportation operations.

 

Industrial Grade Advantages

USB form factors, including embedded and external storage devices, are prized for their wide compatibility, ease of use, and small size. For industrial applications, choosing an industrial grade USB DOM is important for a few reasons. First, industrial embedded storage is strong enough to work in rugged conditions without compromising data or processing speeds. Industrial grade products also feature a controlled bill of materials. This means that none of the components that could affect compatibility and functionality, including the firmware, connector, and flash chips, will be changed without advanced notice and the issuing of a new product number.
