ATP Announces Industrial Grade SD Cards - Ruggedized SD Memory Cards to Endure Extreme Temperatures, Shock and Vibration in Harsh Environments

ATP Electronics Inc., a premium manufacturer of digital flash media products, today announced a new line of highly durable and reliable Industrial Grade SD (SecureDigital) Flash Cards. ATP Industrial Grade SD Cards are designed for demanding Industrial applications such as military, automotive, marine navigation, aviation, and manufacturing, where mission critical data requires the highest level of reliability, durability, and data integrity.

Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 6, 2005 -- SD memory cards, widely used today in mobile devices such as digital cameras, PDA and mobile phones, are increasingly being deployed in industrial applications to operate under harsh conditions, as systems integrators discover new uses for this small size, durable, high capacity solid-state memory storage cards.

ATP Industrial Grade SD Cards are designed to withstand a storage temperature range of -40 to 85 degrees Celsius and an operating temperature range of at least -25 to 85 degrees Celsius. In addition, ATP’s SIP (System-In-Packaging) manufacturing process hermetically encapsulates all exposed components to ensure the cards are waterproof, shockproof, and ESD (electro-static discharge) proof. Furthermore, ATP industrial strength cards have a MTBF rating of over 2 million hours, and performance rating of 10MB/s.

“The decision for ATP to introduce industrial grade SD cards was a natural extension given our existing commitment and reputation for building high quality and performance flash memory cards. All ATP Industrial Grade SD cards are constructed using best-in-class components with enhanced error correction function and wear leveling algorithm. This combines with our advanced SIP manufacturing process results in a consistent, highly durable, reliable and enhanced performance product”, said Danny Lin, ATP VP of Sales and Marketing.              

ATP Industrial Grade SD cards are immediately available with capacities ranging from 32MB up to 2GB, including special capacities such as 384MB, 768MB, 1.28GB, 1.54GB. The entire ATP Industrial Grade SD lineup is fully FCC and CE certified as well as RoHs/Green package compliant.
