Swissbit joins virtual FMS 2020: Store and protect data reliably


Industrial-quality memory and security products for demanding IoT applications

Bronschhofen, Switzerland. November 10, 2020 – This year it’s the world wide web instead of California for Flash Memory Summit (FMS) 2020 , which will be taking place as a virtual conference & expo from November 10 to 12, 2020. On booth #308, Swissbit will present robust memory solutions for demanding applications as well as data carriers with integrated security functions for embedded IoT applications.

At FMS 2020, Swissbit’s Embedded IoT Solutions division will showcase its hardware-based security solutions designed to protect data and devices in Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

By using familiar form factors and common flash memory media interfaces, it is possible with systems-in-package to provide M2M communication participants with forgery-proof identities, carry out data-encryption and equip embedded systems with secure boot media. Developers can test this with Swissbit’s secure boot solution for Raspberry Pi.

Endurance with 3D-NAND

With its range of data storage products, Swissbit proves that durable and reliable storage media for industrial applications are possible even based on 3D-NAND. Under the product name X-75, SATA 6 Gb/s SSDs for the industrial temperature range from -40 to +85 °C are available as 2.5-inch SSDs in the variants M.2 2280, 2242 as well as mSATA and SlimSATA. X-75 SSDs are optimized for highly consistent performance and long lifetime.

The ability to tolerate fluctuating temperatures between read and write operations across a wide temperature range is a key feature of industrial memory products such as the SD and microSD memory cards from the S-50 and S-56 series. These offer highest reliability for demanding applications such as data recorders and industrial PCs.

With its N-20m2, Swissbit offers a robust and powerful SSD featuring low power consumption and quad PCIe-3.1 interface. It is available in standard 2242 and 2280 dimensions as well as the smaller M.2 2230 form factor. This memory module is the ideal boot medium for small embedded systems and routers.

The latest e.MMC EM-30 is another product in compact BGA format. Capacities from 16 to 256 GB are available and, thanks to 3D-NAND, it is significantly more cost-effective than previous 2D-NAND products. Applications range from embedded systems, POS/POI terminals, routers and switches and EM-30 is particularly suited for factory automation, solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT) and medical technology applications.
