Is the CM3 less susceptible to power loss corruption?

Mon Jul 23, 2018 2:38 pm

Hi all,

Since the CM3 uses emmc instead of an SD card, is it any less susceptible to corruption resulting from power loss? I know that there are ways around this, including read-only file systems and safe-shutdown circuits (which i'm implementing). I am not familiar with storage technologies in general, but I do remember reading that SD in general was more prone to corruption due to error checking and other particulars about the SD technology.
