Download the free, 6-page white paper, titled: How to Choose Portable Memory for Embedded Systems: Comparing Consumer and OEM Memory Devices.

This white paper examines the various portable memory options that are available to embedded system designers, including:

  • Consumer Portable Memory Devices (e.g. USB flash drives and SD cards), and
  • OEM Portable Memory Systems.

Where consumer memory device manufacturers are primarily focused on the consumer market, OEM portable memory device manufacturers are focused on non-consumer, embedded applications.

The paper also looks at "industrial" versions of consumer memory products, such as industrial CompactFlash and industrial SD cards. It discusses what the advantages and disadvantages are of the different portable memory options and presents a listing of design considerations that OEMs should consider when integrating portable memory into their embedded designs.
