STEC’s Industrial Grade USB Flash Drive (UFD) is more than just portable storage.
Tailored for industrial applications that require high reliability and data throughput, it
provides non-volatile, industrial grade solid-state storage in a thumb-drive package. In
addition, laser-etched manufacturing information allows for lot traceability and
complete info on the Bill of Materials.
The Industrial Grade UFD is available in a Standard enclosure with LED light
indicator, or an ESD-rated enclosure for applications that require NEBS Level 3
compliancy. The ESD-rated enclosure has been tested for immunity from ESD for
8KV contact and 15KV air.
STEC’s proprietary state-of-the-art USB 2.0 flash memory controller is incorporated in
the Industrial Grade UFD, providing high data integrity and endurance. The flash
management software that is embedded in the controller emulates a hard disk,
enabling read/write operations that are identical to a standard, sector-based hard
disk. Sophisticated wear leveling algorithms guarantee 2,000,000 Write/Erase Cycles,
while automatic bad block management and a built-in ECC Engine guarantee the
highest data reliability. Based on the Reed-Solomon algorithm, the ECC engine can
detect up to 5-byte errors and correct up to 4-byte errors per 512 bytes.
High performance, high reliability and a controlled Bill-Of-Materials make the
Industrial Grade UFD the product of choice in industrial applications, such as POS
Workstations, Networking Equipment, automotive diagnostics and Industrial PCs.
The UFD is fully customizable to add a company logo, graphic design or text, either
by silk screen or laser etching. In addition, STEC offers value-added services to OEM
customers, such as pre-loaded content, custom firmware, controlled Bill Of Materials,
