Development of New Series of SD and MicroSD Card for Industrial Application by TDK
TDK has announced the development of industrial type SD and MicroSD cards with support for rewrite life monitoring, integrated SLC NAND, with maximum of 16 GB capacity. Both types of cards are compliant with SDA specification 2.0 for improved power interruption tolerance. Both MMGBA Series of SD/SDHC cards as well as MUGBA Series of MicroSD cards feature high durability, advanced error correction as well as a lifetime monitoring function.
Among some of the key features on the new cards are Global Static Wear Leveling algorithm which counts the number of times each memory block is rewritten (erased) and replaces blocks uniformly, power interruption tolerance algorithm reducing the risk of collateral data errors such as corruption of data other than the data being written if power is interrupted when writing data just to name a few.
