There are many differences between Industrial and Industrial MLC flash storage devices. In many cases Industrial MLC products initially appear to meet the needs of a specific application. But, the true test of a product is its ability to last the lifetime of the application in the field. In this section we explore the considerations which should be taken to determine the right product for your application.
Industrial Grade uses SLC (Single Level Cell) NAND versus Industrial MLC MLC (Multi Level Cell) as the storage medium for data. SLC NAND has 20-30 times more endurance cycles than MLC NAND and has significantly better data retention life and functionality at extreme temperatures.
