Automotive-rated Micro SD cards offer 100x data retention

February 06, 2014 // By Julien Happich
Swissbit AG’s S-40 and S-40u Series SD and Micro SD memory cards are the first SD and Micro SD cards on the market to feature autonomous data refresh with no intervention required by the host or application.

Thanks to intelligent algorithms, the memory cards deliver up to one hundred times longer data retention than conventional SD memory cards, says the manufacturer.
The memory cards are equipped with intelligent read disturb management (RDM) alongside an autonomous, performance-neutral background "auto refresh" process.

This type of data care management significantly improves data reliability and balances out the increasing limitations of MLC NAND flash during long operation time and extensive use in the field. Data transfer rates reach up to 11MB/s for write and up to 24MB/s for read operations, putting them into SD3.0 speed class 6.

S-40 SD cards are available up to 32 GB; S-40u Micro SD cards are available from 4GB up to 16 GB.
