Swissbit Solutions for Embedded Systems and Industry

Swissbit‘s embedded storage solutions are the perfect fit for demanding embedded applications.  They offer the highest reliability and quality. Swissbit‘s strategic cooperation with suppliers allows for long-term availability of products. To guarantee high-quality standards, each product undergoes thorough functional testing before being released for shipment. The broad portfolio with different NAND technologies and industry-dedicated features guarantee the right solution for each embedded use case.

Requirements

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

  • High endurance: Embedded systems for data acquisition and control need to have a high endurance even with small capacity products.

  • Variety of form factors: Industrial application differ more than any other segment in their mechanical form and need for certain product types. A huge portfolio of modules, technologies and interfaces is required.

  • Longevity: Legacy interfaces still need to be supported, and products need to be available for multiple years.

Swissbit solution

  • SATA & NVMe SSDs: The Swissbit PCIe and SATA products provide the right storage capacity, longevity and operation temperature range for outdoor and indoor systems.

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

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

  • CompactFlash Cards: Longevity SLC and MLC CFC products are available with controlled BOM to eliminate requalification effort and reduce the total cost of ownership.

Key product features

 

Wide temperature Power fail management

Power fail management

Industrial Temperature Grade
Swissbit products are designed for operation in outdoor and remote systems under industrial temperature range. The guaranteed temperature range from -40°C to 85°C of the storage solution 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
Embedded systems are often just powered down by switching off AC, or systems are operated in remote location s with instable power supply. 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

  • Industrial automation
  • Energy distribution
  • Energy consumption
  • Smart grid
  • Infotainment
  • Transportation
  • Aerospace and defense

Use case example:

Automation system

The modern industry does no longer work without factory automation. Automation systems must work 24/7 and in all kinds of environmental conditions.
They may be in clean automotive factories, or in hot and dirty steel plants, on oil drilling platforms or in mining shafts. A frequent requirement is high performance under high temperature conditions. And immunity against shock, vibration, magnetic influence, corrosive gases.
Swissbit is a preferred supplier to many factory automation manufacturers, also because a band stop due to a failing storage product is not tolerable. Swissbit's high product quality prevents this to happen.
