Mostly read embedded OEM applications should consider the read disturb issue in addition to the endurance of the NAND memory when making a decision on which grade of flash memory to use.
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.
The development of NAND flash technology has, until recently, followed the path of traditional memory technologies in that each memory cell stores one bit of binary data.
SEDs (Self Encrypted Disk) are now widely available, most SSDs on the market today advertise as having hardware encryption built-in. However, not all SEDs are created the same. Data security is more than just having hardware encryption
Microsoft Windows CE is a popular operating system (OS) for embedded applications and runs on multiple processor platforms. Many embedded platforms require the use of flash memory-based storage devices...
S.M.A.R.T. (Self Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology, a.k.a. SMART) is a feature set defined by the ANSI ATA Specifications. The feature set consists of a set of commands which allow the host to retrieve information about the storage device's health status. This allows the user to know in advance impending device failures and act accordingly before the device actually fails.
