Swissbit Solutions for Automotive Applications

All components used in automotive applications need to operate within a wide temperature range and withstand sudden power loss as well as shock and vibration. Additionally, very low failure rates are essential, because replacements of malfunctioning parts can incur high costs. Products built in Swissbit’s IATF 16949 certified fab fulfill the quality requirements of the automotive industry.

Requirements

  • Reliability and temperature range: Storage solutions for automotive applications must provide reliable operation even in the most extreme conditions: wide temperature changes, sudden power interruptions, environmental influence.

  • Customized for Automotive Applications: The increasing varieties of infotainment and dashboard applications in cars today require significantly higher storage capacities than before. For autonomous driving, the demand for fast and high capacity storage drives the development of embedded products. Swissbit participates in this trend with newly developed dedicated storage solutions.

  • In-car Cyber Security: Increasingly networked systems and new developments such as autonomous driving require reliable protection of data and the integrity of devices.

Swissbit Solution

  • SATA SSDs: The Swissbit SATA products provide the right storage capacity, longevity and operation temperature range for automotive systems.

  • Small form factor: SD and microSD memory cards, e.MMC and USB products with high endurance are ideal for automotive systems.

  • 3D TLC & 3D pSLC: Cost reduction with the introduction of 3D NAND while maintaining the high reliability and endurance.

  • Protected SD and USB products: Swissbit offers PIN protected SD memory cards and USD flash drives with access control and encryption.

Key Product Features

 

Data Protection Wide temperature Power fail management

Power fail management

Data Protection
Swissbit implements access and data protection on a variety of storage products. Security is mandatory for automotive systems to prevent system manipulation or illegal duplication of map data.
Industrial Temperature Grade
Swissbit products are designed for outdoor operation with a temperature range from -40°C to 85°C. This allows to operate the Swissbit products in systems without airflow. Own thermal management of the Flash controller protects against overheating and lifetime reduction.

Data Care Management
Stored data is sensitive to degeneration by high temperature storage. Data care management constantly checks the quality of the data and refreshes weak blocks in the background. This prevents data loss and extends the field life of the Swissbit products

Power Fail Robustness
Automotive systems are often switched off while still operating. Swissbit implements a robust protection against data loss at sudden power fail in all of the products and verifies the effectiveness by a harsh power interruption test during product qualification.

Typical Applications

  • Infotainment systems
  • Head unit / dashboard
  • Black box / crash recorder
