Memory and non-volatile storage solutions for embedded and industrial applications must provide reliable operation even in the most extreme conditions: temperature, shock, and vibration. As such, both the qualification effort and the support life cycle needed for these products by far exceed those of devices designed for typical consumer applications. The variety of form factors and interfaces used in embedded systems range from 2.5” SSDs to CompactFlash™ to e.MMC, the interfaces from PCIe to PATA, all of which are available and long-term supported from Swissbit.
Swissbit provides the perfect rugged and reliable products for embedded systems with best quality.
The Swissbit PCIe, SATA, SD, microSD, e.MMC and USB products provide the right storage capacity, longevity and operation temperature range for outdoor and indoor systems. The introduction of industrial grade 3D NAND TLC and 3D pSLC reduce the cost while increasing the available storage capacity. Longevity SLC and MLC products are available with locked BOM to eliminate requalification effort and reduce the total cost of ownership.
Key product features
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
Other than office and entertainment equipment the embedded systems are not necessarily shutdown in a safe manner. Embedded systems are often just powered down by switching off AC, or systems are operated in remote location s with instable power supply. Independent of the source of a sudden power loss, the storage products, which often contains the operating system, must restart proper operation after return from power loss without corruption of the drive or stored data. 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.
