What is it?
An SD Card is the most common kind of memory card used in all kinds of modern electronic devices. It comes in three different sizes, and we are using the 'micro' variety that is compatible with the our Single Board Computer.
What does it do in the LSTN kit?
The Single Board Computer has no internal storage drive, so we are using the SD Card to hold all the software and data needed by the ground station. First, the SatNOGS software and a Linux operating system are copied on to the memory card. It is then installed in the Single Board Computer.
