Flash memory is one of the most common types of storage medium that provides fast data processing and code storage features in an embedded application. It is based on a non-volatile memory medium that reprogrammed the data electrically. Its non-volatility nature provides a high level of data integrity by holding data permanently. In this type of memory, data gets deleted at the block level and gets rewritten at the byte level. It is suitable for applications that demand continuous re-writing of data. Many variations of flash memory solutions are there in the market having differences in processing speed, data writing, reading, and erasing capabilities.
Two categories of flash memory storage are reinforcing the functionality of various applications. These include removable and non-removable flash memory. Embedded flash storage is known for its non-removable and non-volatility memory characteristics. It is a kind of storage that is fixed in the system and cannot be removed. It is leveraging various systems such as smartphones, laptops, tablets, and several other handheld systems.
Embedded flash memory is a kind of flash memory that is usually embedded into computers, and systems having low-space features. Thanks to its low power consumption, small size, and ruggedness, embedded memory has become the main medium for storing data in portable devices. Today, this memory is used in everything from digital cameras and USB drives to smartphones and automobiles. The most common examples of embedded storage are eMMC, UFS, LPDDR, eMCP, etc.
Finding the best version of embedded storage can be a daunting task for engineers but Longsys is facilitating the developers by listing all the premium versions of embedded flash solutions that are designed on the principles of high longevity and capability. Choosing the premium version of embedded memory is perfect for an enterprise that is dealing with infinite data volume and needs continuous data access. FORESEE, an industry brand of Longsys, its solutions are designed for offering innovative benefits to enterprise applications, helping to grow your business. It has a keen knowledge of embedded systems and is developing fixtures for the past ten years. The product line has been extended into various solutions based on the demands of end users.
Enhanced speed and performance always comes to the mind of engineer when they think about the embedded flash medium. This resulted due to the use of high-power technology that maintains the smooth data operation of a memory medium. This enables the enterprise to concentrate on business milestones rather than data processing tasks. This enables the user to quickly store, handle, and access the data at any time. The embedded solutions such as DDR3L, industrial eMMC, SPI NAND flash, parallel NAND flash, and SPI NAND flash are excellent choices for promoting the rapid performance of industrial applications such as vehicles, industrial IPC, etc.
Embedded solutions such as eMMC and UFS are highly in-demanding fixtures as their design and form factor is suitable for many platforms such as MediaTek, UNISOC, etc. Now, developers can simply integrate these memory solutions without re-designing the system’s architecture. Distinct versions of embedded solutions are available to match the requirement of different products.
eMMC is the main type of embedded flash memory that is based on MMC standards. This product is continuing the legacy of MMC cards and is a complete package that is integrating flash memory and an LPDC controller. FORESEE eMMC products are based on the new standard eMMC 5.1 which is suitable for innovative systems such as smartphones and TV. This chip occupies minimum PCB space and is best for the mobile industry which is focusing to provide slim and fast-ever mobile systems.
It is featured in various ranges of capacities such as 4GB-256GB to meet the data storing needs of distinct applications. It further optimizes the battery life of smart applications by drawing voltage between 1.8V-3.3V. eMMC is highly compiling the values of data integrity as this incorporates power failure safeguard and ECC technologies.
The launch of UFS in the market has turned the scope of the mobile industry to the next level. It has enabled mobile devices to become more intelligent and faster than PCs. FORESEE UFS is based on UFS 2.2 /UFS 3.1 protocol which offers the features of HBP and writes booster. It has the ideal size that makes it precise for mobile devices. This memory product is offering uninterrupted data processing as this has been introduced with a high level of data-accelerating technology. Now, smartphones can handle data operations more quicker than PCs. The storage capacity offered by the UFS product is up to 256GB.
This is another frontier in the embedded product series that is promising to improve the performance of the application by consuming low power. The product is packaged in well-known compact packaging that keeps the components of the product intact. This is featured in several versions such as LPDDR, LPDDR3, and LPDDR4x. FORESEE LPDDR product type has a distinct capacity and speed for example LPDDR4x provides the maximum clock frequency up to 1600MHz/2133MHz. It is benefiting smartphones, tablets, teaching tablets, smart TV, etc.
This is a combined version of UFS and LPDDR and is offering the combined benefits of both products. This small package is designed to take less PCB space while providing excellent features like higher density, accelerated performance, fast read/write, and low power utilization. FORESEE uMCP is developed on the protocols of UFS 2.2 and LPDDR4x and is promising a clock frequency of up to 2133 MHz. Developers highly prefer this product to enjoy the benefits of both UFS and LPDDR technologies.
Embedded solutions are enabling the engineer to optimize the functionality of handheld devices and to enhance the scope of these solutions, FORESEE is coming with a new version every year such as eMCP and ePoP and is focused to keep launching solutions that are highly sustainable for industrial and consumer sector.
