Ruggedized for industrial environments and workloads

Exascend's SD300 series features proprietary hardware and firmware designs, allowing it to operate in a wide temperature range of -40°C to 85°C and resist shock, vibration, and humidity. With a mean time to failure of two million hours, the SD300 memory cards are built to handle significant workloads, incorporating advanced technologies such as LDPC ECC, wear leveling, and pseudo SLC (specifically for 8- and 16-GB cards) to deliver sustained performance, low storage latency, and high endurance. Additionally, the SD300 comes equipped with a SMART (self-monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology) tool that helps monitor card health status and ensure reliable operation.

Optimized to handle high-resolution images and 4K videos at the edge

The combination of 5G transmission speeds and artificial intelligence (AI) computing has accelerated edge IoT deployment, leading to demand for smaller and higher-speed storage solutions. With sequential read/write speeds of up to 90 MB/s and 80 MB/s respectively, the SD300 offers exceptional performance that can meet the requirements of data-intensive applications. Both SD300 series SD and microSD cards carry speed class of V30/U3/C10 and performance class of A2, capable of supporting continuous 24/7 video recording and processing high-resolution images and 4K footage at the edge.

"Exascend is committed to providing our customers with the highest-quality storage solutions that can meet the needs of their most demanding applications," said Frank Chen, CEO of Exascend. "The SD300 series industrial memory cards are the latest additions to our portfolio, and we are confident that they will be valuable for our customers in the industrial sector."

The SD300 series is now available for purchase from the company and its authorized distributors, with both models offering capacities from 8 GB to 256 GB, and a three-year warranty. For detailed specifications, please visit the industrial SD card and microSD card pages on Exascend's website.
