OEM Grade Flash Products

The pSLC OEM Grade series offers an up to 6 times higher endurance than the MLC Commercial Grade series (depending on the data profile used) for a slightly higher price. The OEM Grade flash storage devices are built with pseudo SLC NAND memory, which uses MLC NAND in a 1-bit per cell mode instead of the standard 2-bit per cell configuration. All OEM Grade products have a locked BOM for as long as it is available. Also an extended temperature version is available in the range of -40°C to +85°C.
