Sai-Ying Ng, President of Cactus Technologies Ltd. commented, “There is a requirement by a portion of the OEM market for flash storage devices that do not have a need for high endurance cycles, but do need Bill Of Material control and long life cycles. For this reason we are introducing the OEM Standard Grade product Series.”

The Cactus Technologies Commerical Grade offers the following features:

  • Industry Standard MLC SD Card and MLC SATA SSD form factors
  • Bill-Of-Material Control
  • Long Life Cycles
  • 100K endurance cycles per block
