What You Need to Know about Industrial SSD
For engineers seeking board-level storage for SATA-based designs, industrial SSD is the solution. This NAND storage option is ideal for logging critical data in rugged environments that require a small form factor. Industrial grade products are designed to provide reliable embedded storage when temperature, shock, and vibration demands are extreme. This makes them compatible with the needs of industries such as aerospace, transportation, and healthcare, where losing critical data is not an option. Here are the facts engineers need to know about industrial SSD.
Industrial SLC mSATA SSD was created in response to demand.
When mSATA was introduced, it was intended to be used as a computer-centric form factor for client applications. Notebook computers were the main focus, although other thin client applications also used mSATA. However, the embedded industrial industry seized on mSATA because of its easy integration, light weight, and small size, coupled with its wide range of configurations. Industrial SLC mSATA SSD provides these benefits with the SLC Flash reliability necessary for industrial applications.
Rugged environments are no problem for industrial SSD.
Industrial applications often operate in taxing environments. Some common issues faced in these applications include:
- Extreme temperatures.
- Temperature fluctuations.
- High levels of shock.
- High levels of vibration.
Industrial SSD can withstand these conditions. Typically, this kind of embedded memory can operate in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees C to 85 degrees C, with an even greater range of safe storage temperatures. The ability to withstand shocks and vibrations coupled with high-performance read and write speeds make industrial mSATA SSD a viable solution for a range of industries. Additionally, opting for an industrial grade product means that the parts will not be changed without a product number change, reducing concerns about unexpected field failures. This reliability comes with a storage capacity of up to 64GB.
SLC Flash protects data for industrial users.
MLC Flash storage is appropriate for a wide range of products, but SLC Flash is more useful for industrial applications. With SLC Flash, one bit of data is stored per NAND Flash cell. As a result, SLC Flash memory provides higher speeds, longer endurance, and less power consumption—all critical components for industrial applications.
