Cactus Industrial Grade SLC NAND Products Reliable Solution for Years to Come

Industrial Grade Flash Infographic

Extreme Reliability in flash storage starts from the NAND memory where your data is stored.  If you use the lowest cost memory, that great price comes with lower reliability and short life cycles.

Since our inception in 2005, Cactus Technologies has been offering the most reliable Industrial Grade Flash Storage Devices, based on SLC NAND.

We also offer lower cost OEM and Industrial MLC products, but if reliability is paramount, Industrial Grade SLC NAND products are the best of breed.

Industrial SLC NAND Applications

As the mass market focuses primarily on price and performance, Cactus continues to offer extreme reliability for mission critical applications that cannot fail for a decade or longer.

The Industrial Grade parts are offered in an extended (-45C to 90C) operating temp range and always come with a locked-BOM (Bill-Of-Material).

The locked-BOM is important since it makes no sense to qualify a flash storage device for months or years in your application when the production units will be built differently.

Most flash storage devices look the same from the outside, but without a locked-BOM, they are different on the inside. Different controller or memory silicon as well as firmware can have drastic effects on the performance, reliability and functionality of the product.

So, if you are designing an OEM system today that needs reliability now and into the years to come, the Cactus Industrial Grade solutions are an ideal solution.
