Micron Technology debuts the i400, an 1.5TB microSD card designed for industrial-grade video security utilizing the world’s first 176-layer 3D NAND. Whether it be real-time video security, internet protocol video security or video security-as-a-service (VSaaS), this card is up for the job.
Just how much is 1.5TB of storage density? A single card can store up to four months or 120 days of video security media locally, thus eliminating the need to continuously upload data to the cloud for primary storage. It’s capable of concurrently handling 4K video recording and up to eight AI events per second, like object detection and classification such as license plate or facial recognition. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to turn this memory card into a functional game console, like this SEGA Dreamcast VMU.
- Up to 1TB to store even more hours of Full HD video (2). 1GB=1,000,000,000 bytes. 1TB=1,000,000,000,000 bytes. Actual user storage less. (2) Full HD (1920x1080) video support may vary based upon host device, file attributes, and other factors. See official SanDisk website.
- Up to 120MB/s transfer speeds let you move up to 1000 photos in a minute (5). Up to 120MB/s read speed, engineered with proprietary technology to reach speeds beyond UHS-I 104MB/s, require compatible devices capable of reaching such speed. Write speeds lower. Based on internal testing; performance may be lower depending on host device, interface, usage conditions and other factors. 1MB=1,000,000 bytes. (5)Based on internal testing on images with an average file size of 3.55MB (up to 3.7GB total) with USB 3.0 reader. Your results will vary based on host device, file attributes, and other factors.
- Load apps faster with A1-rated performance (1). (1)A1 performance is 1500 read IOPS, 500 write IOPS. Based on internal testing. Results may vary based on host device, app type and other factors.
- Ideal for Android smartphones and tablets, and MIL cameras
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. 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,” said Kris Baxter, corporate vice president and general manager of Micron’s Embedded Business Unit.
