SMART (Self-Monitoring & Analysis Reporting Technology [SMART information]) software performs self-diagnostic functions.
The NAND Flash memory built into compact flash (CF) cards, SSD (solid state drives) and SD cards can only perform a certain number of program (erase) operations due to its limited endurance.
When using built-in CF cards, SSD or SD cards, it is especially important to monitor program (erase) counts, track how much defective blocks have generated as devices near the end of their lifespan, and get quantitative, real-time assessments of CF card, SSD, and SD card endurance in actual systems.
The TDK SMART program provides the following information.
