Kiosk, Point of Sales Systems and other vertical application devices use the modular, reliable Cactus flash storage devices to store their Operating Systems and application software. Whether in benign or hostile environments, Cactus has an offering to meet the needs of the Display systems.
This market’s requirements vary widely as cost versus requirements considerations are made. Cactus offers several choices of products to meet these demands, a few of which are shown below.
From visits to OEM companies using flash storage as a critical device in their systems over the last couple decades, the discussion often turns to what would happen to the company if the flash storage failed.
Not all SSD are created equal. There are enormous differences in ability to work at temperature, in poor power environments, under high duty cycles. When talking enormous, an Industrial Grade SSD can have as much as 300 times (yes, 300 times, not 300%) more write endurance cycles per physical block of data.
In the world of Mil Spec SSD and flash storage devices, the high shock, vibration, wide temperature range, long life cycle, locked Bill-Of-Material requirements are easily met with the Cactus Technologies’ Industrial Grade Flash Storage Offering.
Pseudo-SLC NAND uses MLC NAND in a single bit per cell mode, thereby giving it >6 times the endurance of the same MLC NAND cell used in its traditional two bit per cell operation. Cactus OEM Grade uses this pSLC and is an upgrade from our Commercial Grade which uses MLC NAND.
Cactus Technologies industrial-grade flash storage products are designed to operate in environments where temperature, shock, vibration and voltage fluctuations occur often and can cause abnormal operations on the device.
