Since microSD cards with capacities of up to 1 TB are presently on the market, technology manufacturer Micron has revealed a microSD card with a 1.5 terabyte (TB) capacity, which it claims is “the first in the world.”
This approach was introduced by Micron as part of Embedded World, an annual conference that brings together specialists from many sectors of embedded systems research and application.
This Micron i400 model has the greatest storage capacity ever and is made for industrial-strength video surveillance applications, allowing it to store a lot of data.
In fact, Micron claims that the microSD card can keep up to 120 days’ worth of local media, or up to four months. This feature enables users to maximize the amount of data that is kept in the cloud.
The i400 microSD series is produced utilizing a 176-layer 3D NAND technology, a format that the business has previously utilised. The cards are also X-ray, splash, and drop resistant.
On the other hand, this product is U3 certified (with a minimum sustained write speed of 10 MB per second), A2 approved, and Class 10 certified. It can achieve read speeds of 4,000 IOPs.
The chip maker for this model has emphasized a number of features, including the capacity to enable 4K video capture and as many as eight Artificial Intelligence (AI) actions per second.
Since it can run for an average of two million hours before a mistake is recorded, the business guarantees that it is unlikely to fail.
Despite the fact that Micron has made a point of include this new capacity in its microSD cards, this particular model will also be offered in 256GB, 512GB, and 1TB storage options.
According to the technical parameters table you provided, each one is capable of operating flawlessly for five years, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, before showing signs of failure.
They can all operate in temperatures ranging from -25 degrees to 85 degrees Celsius (oC), along with the Micron i300 (128GB, 256GB, 512GB, and 1T) and Micron i200 (32 GB and 64 GB) versions.
At this time, neither the price nor the release date of the 1.5TB Micro i400 card have been disclosed by Micron.
