What Are Industrial Applications?

Delkin Devices Industrial Applications

 

Electronic applications are designed to be used by a wide array of people and industries. Computers and smartphones, for instance, are typically designed to be used in the consumer and commercial markets, in which individuals use devices for personal purposes. Industrial applications are different. These devices are used in a variety of industries, often for uses that have implications for an entire business or a large number of people. For example, industrial applications used in airplanes may help to control the in-flight entertainment system and flight navigation systems. These applications not only make the flight comfortable for passengers but can also have far-reaching impacts on safety. For these reasons, it is important for embedded data storage used in industrial settings to meet strict guidelines.

 

Types of Industrial Applications

You can find industrial applications in healthcare, transportation, gaming, communications, automation, power, digital signage, and much more. The thing that ties all of these applications together is that they involve critical data and perform crucial operations. A failure of on the industrial side can be far more costly—and even dangerous—than the failure of a commercial or consumer application. A failure of your smartphone may be personally frustrating, for instance, but the failure of a medical device or a device used in a public transportation system can be catastrophic.

 

Memory for Industrial Applications

A key difference between commercial and industrial applications is the kind of embedded memory they use. Industrial applications typically use single-level cell, or SLC, flash memory. This kind of flash memory has several advantages that are critical for industrial applications. It can withstand the extreme temperature ranges that industrial applications may be exposed to, as well as the high levels of shock and vibration they may encounter. In addition, SLC flash is the most reliable version of flash, and it has the longest lifespan. This helps to reduce the risk of failures in the field.
