What is it?
3D-Based NAND flash technology SD Cards
What problem does it solve?
3D NAND flash offers the potential for higher capacity in a smaller physical space than 2D NAND.
In comparison to planar NAND, 3D NAND can lower the cost per gigabyte, improve electrical use to reduce power consumption, boost reliability, and provide higher data write performance.
What are the features and benefits?
- Card endurances from 3,000 to 20,000 total program/erase cycles
- Operating temperature of -25°C to +85°C
Consumer Plus SD Cards Panasonic has adopted the new 3D-Based NAND flash technology into four new Consumer Plus SD Card Series. By utilizing both TLC (Triple Level Cell) and pSLC (pseudo-Single Level Cell) technologies, card endurances from 3,000 to 20,000 total program/erase cycles are available.
A standard operating temperature of -25°C to +85°C is available with all Panasonic Consumer Plus SD Cards which is an improvement over some consumer-type products on the market. Along with Panasonic’s current 2D-NAND-based product line, the New Consumer Plus Grade 3D-Based SD Cards can also offer up to UH1-1 U3 speed grades and read performance of up to 95 MB/s.
Panasonic’s proprietary controller firmware design supports additional firmware features such as Power Fail Robustness (available on some Series) and Static Wear Leveling to ensure long life in nearly any customer application.
While many memory suppliers are moving away from low capacities like 4GB and 8GB, Panasonic strives to support both the older, “legacy” products and the more modern, high capacity applications being developed. Currently, Panasonic provides capacities from 4GB up to 256GB.
