Micron Outs Surveillance-Grade Edge microSD in 128GB and 256GB Capacities
Micron first introduced the Edge industrial-grade microSD flash cards back in November 2017 but was only available in capacities of up to 64GB. Today, Micron confirms the availability of the larger 128GB and 256GB capacities of the Micron Edge microSD on its global distribution channels.
The Micro Edge microSD cards are based on Micron’s industry-leading 64-layer 3D TLC NAND technology that enables greater capacities with the same compact flash form factor. With capacities of up to 256GB, it offers surveillance video storage of up to 30 days on the camera itself. Micron’s industrial-grade microSD cards are built to be robust, reliable and maintenance-free to deliver 24/7 continuous operation without dropping any frame rate.
