ADATA Technology has launched its industrial-grade IUDD362 microSD card line which uses high-quality SLC NAND Flash for enhanced durability and a prolonged lifespan, which makes it ideal for automated systems.
The ADATA IUDD362 microSD card is ideally suited for industrial systems that are in continuous operation as the line offers improved stability, durability, and performance over its counterparts that utilize MLC or TLC NAND Flash. The IUDD362 is also designed to operate in a wide range of temperatures, from -40°C to 85°C, ensuring optimal performance, even in harsh conditions. Also, the IUDD362 is rated at 3 million MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) for added trustworthiness.
TheIUDD362 comes in 1GB, 2GB, 4GB, and 8GB storage capacities, boasts read/write speeds of up to 30/25/MB per second, and can operate on just 0.6W of power.
These chip specs make it ideal for industrial automation and transportation systems like in-vehicle data loggers.
In order to ensure the stability required by industrial applications, the IUDD362 supports a number of technologies. These include Error Correcting Code (ECC) technology, which can detect and fix errors to ensure data integrity, Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology (S.M.A.R.T.), which can indicate imminent drive failures, and Wear-Leveling, which is a technique that enables the use of each block of NAND Flash installed in memory from being damaged prematurely, thus prolonging its service life.
The whole line is a bit of new ground for ADATA which is known more for its DRAM, SSD, and flash drives for consumer use rather than industrial. It will be interesting to see how these chips shake out for the tech company, however, as it ties in with ADATA's new focus on robotics and electronic powertrain systems.
Exact availability of the ADATA IUDD362 may vary by region, but the microSD line is available starting today.
