Whether it’s a high-speed train, a container ship, an aircraft, or an 18-wheeler, all vehicles require reliable hardware to store data – hardware that can endure toughest environments. Obviously, this presents many challenges as vehicles and their equipment are routinely exposed to strong vibrations, unreliable power supply, and extreme temperatures. Fortunately, internal solid-state drives (SSDs) and secure digital (SD) cards have solved this problem.
How Flash Memory Devices Are Changing the Future of Transportation
SSD technology is not only ultra-fast, but also enables secure storage and management of data. They cater to organizations with different needs, especially in rugged server, embedded computing, mission-critical, and industrial computing applications. They feature SSD speeds of up to 500 MB/s and a 2.5 inch form factor with easy data recovery; something not available with slow HDD speed devices.
The part of solid-state drives that makes them such a reliable flash storage is NAND flash memory. It is a type of non-volatile flash memory that doesn’t need power to retain data. SD cards also use NAND flash storage space and can withstand 100,000 write cycles, making them as enduring as a solid-state drive.
A good example of this is our 3.0 MLC Enhanced and Industrial Temperature SD Card, which is ideal for transportation, telecom-server, and industrial applications. It can operate in temperatures ranging from -40°C to 85°C, with an even greater range of temperatures in enhanced grade. With sequential write speeds of up to 95 MB/s (read) and up to 90MB/s (write), it is a viable solution for several industries. All this reliability comes with storage space of up to 128 GB.
Unlike a traditional hard disk drive that uses a circular disk to access data, flash memory devices offer the benefits of longer battery life, less physical space, and the ability to save data even after power is shut off.
If you work in the transportation industry, you are aware of the key challenges faced by storage devices’ operating system:
- Sensors and cameras generate massive amounts of data that your equipment must be able to store and analyze.
- The equipment must be able to handle ever-changing climate conditions and a constantly tough working environment.
- Quality of transportation applications cannot be compromised as any malfunction or mishap can lead to a disaster.
In addition, many tasks rely on sensors that must provide system input such as video/audio data, temperature, altitude, and GPS. All these challenges can be effectively met by the superior SSD performance devices.
