What Are the Benefits of Electronic Conformal Coating?

Interfaces Form Factors

 

Your storage device contains sensitive circuitry and components that could be harmed by moisture, humidity, and environmental debris. Conformal coating is the key to keeping the internal parts of the storage device safe. Electronic conformal coating is an important component to consider when you are selecting an industrial storage device. Here are some of the benefits of having electronic conformal coating on your storage device.

 

Protection from Moisture and Humidity

Moisture and humidity are two significant risks for flash storage devices. This risk is even higher for industrial-grade applications, which are likely to be used in environments in which levels of moisture and humidity are higher than normal. This includes applications that are used in signage that may be outside and exposed to the elements or in transportation systems that are likely to generate hot temperatures when in use. With electronic conformal coating, the internal parts of the memory device are safe from the influence of these elements, so that the device can remain operational.

 

Longer Operating Life

Longevity is a critical issue for every kind of flash memory. This is especially true for industrial-grade devices, because unexpected failures can trigger very costly disruptions. With electronic conformal coating, the storage device is protected from the external factors that can interfere with its longevity. As a result, industrial users can focus on managing the longevity of their memory devices by monitoring signs of declining efficiency and the amount of usage, rather than being concerned that external factors are going to make the memory die unexpectedly and before they have gotten the expected amount of usage out of it.

 

Protection from Debris

Dust and debris can easily enter circuit board components and cause operational issues. It only takes a speck of dust to cause a major problem to occur. Conformal coating resolves this risk by providing a barrier to keep contaminants out.
