Micron Technology has announced the development of the world’s first microSD memory card capable of storing one and a half terabytes of information. The product received the designation i400 – its trial deliveries have already begun.
The novelty is based on 176-layer 3D NAND flash memory chips. The card complies with SD3.0 and UHS-1 standards, as well as U3, A2 and Class 10. It is more resistant to negative environmental influences and can operate in a wide temperature range from minus 25 to plus 85 degrees Celsius.
The solution is primarily intended for use in CCTV cameras. It is claimed that 1.5TB of capacity is enough to store video footage for 120 days or four months.
The card can be used around the clock for 5 years. The high performance enables simultaneous 4K video recording and processing of up to eight AI events per second, such as B. Object detection and classification, face recognition, etc.
The stated MTBF (mean time between failures) reaches 2 million hours. The i400 series also includes cards with capacities of 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, 512GB and 1TB.
