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.
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.
Know and understand the concepts and mathematical models for estimating the expected write endurance for Cactus Technologies industrial- grade flash storage products.
This white paper outlines some frequently asked questions regarding Cactus Technologies Industrial Grade Flash Storage Products.
Today's 4Xnm SLC NAND flash devices typically are guaranteed for 70,000 program/erase cycles.
Both PC Card and Compact Flash standards define a mode in which the card can operate as though it is a hard disk drive.
This application note outlines the requirements and procedures for OS installation and start up with Cactus flash- storage products.
Recently, there has been increasing interest to adopt the SD Card for usage in industrial environments also.
Using flash memory-based storage devices can be very helpful for the system to achieve high performance under these environmental constraints.
