Industrial Grade Flash Media

For mission critical applications it is important that your flash media perform at the right levels all of the time. Consumer products are not designed to do this and therefore card manufacturers optimise them for speed at the compromise of reliability. For industrial grade media reliability is more important, a device can be used that will have consistent access speeds over extended periods of use. We can offer solutions for Industrial Grade SD cards, Industrial Grade USB, Industrial Grade SSD and Industrial Grade Compact Flash. We can source and supply all types of Flash Memory, SLC, MLC, TLC and 3D Nand.

Extended Temperature flash media

Flash media is designed to run under certain environmental conditions, media is designed typically to run between 0 °C and +60 °C. However, what if you need to run the media at -20 °C? This is where extended temperature media can help, we can find and specify the exact media device that works for your environmental needs. We can offer solutions for Extended Temperature SD, Extended Temperature USB, Extended Temperature SSD and Extended Temperature Compact Flash.

Choosing the right product for you

Flash memory can be a complicated technology to understand. There are different types of flash technologies from different manufacturers and they all have a place in the market. There are also multiple form factors for removable and embedded storage and whilst they all comply to international standards, they all perform very differently.

After selecting the type of flash memory to use, further consideration should be given to how the manufacturer has tested and graded the memory, then there is the importance of the controller and the firmware. They all have a direct impact on how a product will perform, its reliability and ultimately its suitability for an application. The host is also a vital component in this eco-system so to ensure all products perform at their maximum potential, it is vital that product selection is taken seriously..
