Micron Technology has announced the company is sampling what it claims is the world's highest-capacity microSD card, the i400, at a density of 1.5 terabytes (TB). This card is designed for industrial-grade video security with 176-layer 3D NAND.
Verkada, a cloud-managed enterprise building-security provider, is among the customers receiving Micron's 1.5TB microSD card samples. Verkada protects over 12,000 organizations, including 43 of the Fortune 500, with its intelligent cameras and recently donated cameras to Asian American-owned businesses seeking enhanced safety.
"Micron's industrial-grade storage is key to helping us protect our customers and communities, from schools to large enterprises, by meeting the most demanding of video retention and security requirements," said Raj Misra, VP of hardware engineering at Verkada. "The latest i400 solution will provide further peace of mind by enabling greater video storage at the edge and faster in-camera AI analytics - important in crises where response time is paramount."
Micron has received the first International Organization of Standardization (ISO) 26262 Automotive Safety Integrity Level (ASIL) D certification of memory for its LPDDR5 DRAM manufactured using 1-alpha process technology. With next-generation advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) applications requiring increasing levels of autonomy and safety, this certification validates that Micron's LPDDR5 meets strict functional safety standards.
Micron disclosed its automotive LPDDR5 memory is certified by exida, a renowned expert in automotive safety, for the most stringent safety integrity level, ASIL D, under ISO 26262. Micron has kicked off mass production of its automotive LPDDR5 memory available in 48- and 96-gigabit densities.
"With edge devices generating critical insights for everything from public safety to vehicle autonomy to manufacturing operations, today's smart applications cannot afford to compromise on latency or quality," said Kris Baxter, corporate VP and GM of Micron's embedded business unit. "Micron's newest high-performance, ruggedized solutions - our i400 microSD card for video security and automotive ASIL-D-qualified LPDDR5 - will unlock new value for businesses and drive the rapid innovation needed at the intelligent edge."
