3D NAND FLASH

NAND Flash has been around for a long time. Its main use is, but not limited to, building storage devices (CF Card, SD cards, SSD (PATA and SATA Disk drives) and more. Its makeup is of multiple cells based on floating gate MOSFETs. These cells are arranged in an XY grid planar configuration the die, in a logical NAND configuration, hence the name NAND Flash. Cells can contain 1 bit (SLC), 2 Bits (MLC), or 3 Bits (TLC). SLC Read More...

Why Choose an Industrial Memory Card?

 Technology has progressively shown improvement year after year, and this ongoing evolution has required new development in data storage solutions, especially in the industrial sector. Therefore, it’s necessary that the right decisions are made when picking the appropriate industrial memory card. There are several form factors of industrial memory cards available, with a variety of specifications. Form factors include Industrial SD, Industrial microSD, Industrial USB, Industrial CF, and Industrial SSD. Not all storage devices are designed alike, and industrial-grade Read More...

Industrial Flash Storage for Transportation Applications

What Are Top Reasons for Industrial Flash Storage in Transportation Applications?  Many modes of transportation including motor vehicles, trains, and aircraft use industrial flash storage for critical data storage functions. Due to the varying nature of these transportation methods, technology is designed to execute specific roles and address special concerns. However, a common requirement found in all transportation technology systems is the need to reliably store operational, navigational, and system performance data. The rugged reliability of Delkin Devices Industrial Flash Read More...

Real Time Embedded & Operating Systems (RTOS)

Real Time Embedded Systems generally consist of Hardware and Software (More often referred to as Firmware). These systems include at a minimum:Hardware:CPU – Various types such as RISC or CISC, single core or multi-core, fully integrated ASIC type controllers. Executes a set of instructions in a program (process or application) created by the system programmer. Ram Memory and Controller– Usually DRAM, used to run programs and for transient data storage. The controller for the DRAM is usually part Read More...

Industrial CompactFlash Cards for Aerospace

That's why these flash storage devices Read More...

Managing Errors in NAND Flash Based Devices

  GeneralNAND flash is the proper choice for mass storages devices. Its use allows large storage devices at relatively low cost. Nor flash was traditionally used in embedded systems, to hold boot code and data, however, it is inefficient for holding large amounts of data.In today’s systems, having a Nor flash (protected) bios supporting system boot from USB or SATA/IDE drives, SD cards and CF cards is now the choice for design, and these devices are typically NAND flash based.NAND Read More...

What Are the Top Differences Between Industrial Grade and Consumer Grade Flash Storage?

Perhaps your organization has just decided that a flash storage device is necessary for your new industrial application prototype, or you just need a perfect replacement to the flash storage that’s been used in an industrial host. Whichever the case, there are many flash storage options in the market to choose from, with all of them falling under two general categories - industrial grade flash storage and consumer grade flash storage.However, learning about the differences between these two grades Read More...

Why Delkin Devices Industrial Flash Storage Solutions Enable a Better Healthcare Industry

Healthcare files are big, meaning that simple x-rays are about 8 MB each. When you're talking about one picture for one patient, this might not seem like a lot, but when you consider that a normal brain MRI involves about 230 images, you're quickly looking at several gigabytes of data per patient. Across a healthcare network that spans multiple cities or states, the amount of data that needs to be stored becomes immense.That data also needs to be transferable Read More...

3D NAND Flash Application Considerations

3D NAND flash is an advanced architectural development in flash storage that enables memory cells to be stacked vertically in multiple layers. This is a more sophisticated design and is a great solution for high density mass storage. By building multiple layers, larger geometries can be used to deliver higher reliability and higher density. It is estimated that about fifty-percent of bits manufactured will be 3D by mid-2017.One strong advantage of 3D NAND is that it has a low Read More...
