Swissbit at embedded world 2023
Bronschhofen, Switzerland. February 14, 2023 – Following last year’s summer show, embedded world 2023 will return to its usual schedule and open its doors on March 14. In hall 1, booth 1-534, Swissbit will exhibit the latest generation of its SATA SSD X-7x portfolio with 100+ layers of industrial TLC NAND and additional security features. The high-endurance SSD X‑78 is brand new and sets a record by achieving 100,000 P/E cycles (Program/Erase Cycles) in pSLC mode. A 16 TB version of the recently released N4200 data center SSD will also be on display for the first time at the Nuremberg show. As its latest security solution, Swissbit will showcase the new FIDO-stick iShield FIDO2 Pro and demonstrate how IoT devices can be secured easily and efficiently, even as a retrofit option, using the hardware security module iShield HSM.
Swissbit offers a wide range of Secure-SATA-SSDs with its X-7x platform, all of which include the latest industrial TLC flash generation and are offered in a variety of form factors, including M.2, Slim-SATA, and 2.5-inch SSDs. The series also includes new pSLC variants (X-78), which, with 100,000 write-erase cycles, achieve the endurance of much more cost-intensive SLC solutions.
The AES-128/256 encryption with TCG-OPAL-2.0 access protection, which guarantees comprehensive data and access protection, is another feature of the portfolio. Furthermore, Swissbit’s powersafe™ feature, a tried-and-tested addition to the new SATA-SSDs, ensures the greatest level of data security even for dynamic data in the event of sudden power outages.
16 TB version data center SSD N4200
A key focus in the memory space are solutions for the data center industry, which Swissbit entered at the end of 2022 with its own SSD series. In time for embedded world, the N4200 model series will be expanded to include a version with 16 TB of storage capacity, offering the same advantages as its 8 TB sister model: a two to five times faster constant write speed with consistently low latency and endurance over the course of the service life. This is accomplished via specialized firmware, which, if necessary, can be configured to work with particular data center application profiles.
iShield FIDO2 Pro: Highest security and even greater flexibility
Just in time for embedded world, Swissbit will launch iShield FIDO2 Pro, a new powerful hardware security key. The Pro version of the FIDO stick, which comes in a black, robust plastic housing, includes even more features, and meets additional security standards. These include HOTP (Hash-based One Time Password), which enables the FIDO stick to be used in offline use case scenarios, and PIV (Personal Identity Verification), which stores user login information using the PKCS#11 or PKCS#15 encryption standards. Swissbit's own production facility in Berlin manufactures the security key Pro with NFC and USB interface.
iShield HSM: Versatile security anchor for IoT devices
The iShield HSM hardware security module is a further security-highlight. The industrial-grade USB-A stick enables secure storage of cryptographic keys and credentials required to identify and register IoT devices. System integrators can easily retrofit iShield HSM to existing devices like gateways or industrial controls to add an additional layer of protection. The module is AWS IoT Greengrass qualified but, if necessary, can also be utilized as a security anchor in other IoT environments and situations. Swissbit will provide further information about planned technology partnerships, certifications, and other possibilities at embedded world.
