The fastest and in many cases most cost effective way to get a product to market is by use of a Single Board Computer (SBC). Most SBC come with a slot or connector for an industry standard form factor flash storage device. Cactus has a wide breadth of form factors to support almost all SBC. 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.
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.
