Data Care for Industrial Apps: Firmware Addresses Insufficient Lifespan of Flash
Ulrich Brandt 4/5/2017 Post a comment
Neither low-price flash memory devices for consumer markets nor those devices intended for professional IT use can adequately fulfill the requirements of industrial applications. As well as robustness in relation to the ambient conditions, and specific read and write performance requirements, a long product lifespan is a decisive factor - in relation to both the medium (endurance) as well as the stored data (retention). What are the determining factors? How do providers of industrial flash memory devices address these issues?
