Western Digital Corp has introduced it’s newest and highest performing automotive-grade card solutions to date. Newly enhanced SanDisk Automotive card storage solutions provide endurance and reliability for intensive applications and “connected automotive” applications under extreme ambient temperatures.
It is being claimed that with up to quadruple the read speed and more than twice the write speed of the company’s previous generation cards1, they would enable OEMs to push the boundaries of applications – from supporting “smart” surveillance systems with fast in-camera analytics, to improving high-definition video capture in surveying commercial drones and automotive dash cameras, to enhancing the responsiveness of automotive 3D mapping navigation systems.
New, higher performance SanDisk Automotive SD cards are claimed to be built to meet the rigorous reliability, quality and temperature demands of the automotive market. Compliant with the automotive AEC-Q100 Grade 3 standard (operating in ambient temperatures of -40oC to 85oC), it would enable OEMs to bring intelligent, high-capacity and fast data storage to a wide array of advanced, in-vehicle applications and systems, including navigation mapping systems, data event recorders, infotainment systems and more.
