FAQs about SD Card Industrial Grade Solutions
What is an Industrial microSD Card?
By definition, edge computing is pushing the frontier of computing applications, data, and services away from centralized nodes to the logical extremes of a network. It enables analytics and knowledge generation to occur at the source of the data (Wikipedia.org). This approach requires leveraging resources that may not be continuously connected to a network and as such needs a storage mechanism that specifically engineered to meet the ever-growing demand for capturing hours of data. For example, current SD cards in automotive are used to capture video from the various external cameras. In the future, the role of the SD cards in cars could potentially be expanded to capture video plus telemetry data in case of accidents and/or theft.
