Swissbit Solutions for the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is one of the fastest growing markets for embedded and industrial systems. The term stands for the technology to connect homogeneous and heterogeneous physical and virtual devices with each other and also to a centralized cloud. Often combined with big data and artificial intelligence (AI), the IoT devices generate lots of data that need to be stored, processed, transmitted and analyzed. Local storage in the IoT devices (edge) becomes more important in order to buffer and reduce the amount of data that is transmitted through the communication channels.
Swissbit provides various types of storage solutions for the IoT systems that enable reliable, stable and high-performing operation with long service life.

Requirements

Memory and non-volatile storage solutions for edge computing must work uninterrupted and with long service interval. Edge computing systems experience wide temperature ranges, shock, and vibration. Remotely installed sensors, actuators and communication channels need to have local storage for pre-processing of big data, temporary storage for optimized network usage and format conversion. Stored data must be protected against manipulation or theft. The storage product must provide a high bandwidth for small block write operations.
The life time status of the storage device must be controllable by local maintenance routines.

Swissbit solution

Swissbit provides the perfect rugged and reliable small form factor storage products for edge computing systems.
The Swissbit PCIe, SATA, SD, microSD, e.MMC and USB products provide the right storage capacity, longevity and operation temperature range for remotely installed systems. The introduction of industrial grade 3D NAND TLC and 3D pSLC reduce the cost while increasing the available storage capacity.

Swissbit security products can be used as a TPM-like, HW based root of trust to give Iot devices a unique ID and protect access, boot code, communication and stored data.

Key product features

 

Wide temperature

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.

 

Power fail managementData 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 management

Power Fail Robustness
Other than office and entertainment equipment the IoT 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.

Typical applications

  • Industrial connectivity
  • Smart Manufacturing
  • Smart grid
  • Automation
  • Surveillance
  • Transportation

Your benefits

  • Small: ideal for small form factors IoT devices

  • Robust: rugged design, environmentally protected

  • Reliable: wide temperature range, high endurance

  • Low cost of ownership: long service life, highest quality

Use case example:

Surveillance camera

Surveillance cameras need to operate 24/7 with a constant frame rate. Dependent on the indoor or outdoor location the operation temperature of the storage product can reach extreme levels. The Swissbit SD and micro SD memory cards withstand all typical environmental conditions with a long lifetime. The sustained bandwidth and available capacity of the new 3D NAND based microSD memory card series S-50u covers the spec of most modern HD surveillance cameras and is supported by life time monitoring which can predict the remaining field life time.
