The i400 series uses 176-layer 3D NAND memory from Micronwhich was introduced at the end of 2020. The company said at the time that its layer count was nearly 40 percent higher than its closest competitor, and it was ideal for small form factor solutions.

Micron said the cards will make it easier to store data at the edge where it’s created for actionable, real-time information. They can also enable small businesses to reduce the need to continuously upload data to the cloud, which can be costly, especially from remote locations such as cargo ships or oil rigs.
