The eMMC stands for an embedded multimedia card that is empowering a wide range of electronic devices. It is an embedded type of chip that is integrated into the motherboard. This type of chip is employing the MMC card and a 3D NAND flash memory medium. It consists of three main parts: a memory controller for controlling operations, flash memory for handling data, and an MMC card interface. These three together packed into BGA packaging forms an eMMC chip. The NAND type memory is used in almost every type of storage such as USBs, SD cards, and SSDs. This eMMC storage is ideal to enhance the storage in laptops, PCs, notebooks, smart watches, and mobile phones which require non-stop stability, capacity, and endurance.
FORESEE eMMC memory is extremely robust having a small footprint and providing higher storage in smaller devices. World-class developers prefer to FORESEE memory because of its robust in-house firmware and small footprint which is enabling easy memory integration to complex smart systems. New standards of eMMC such as eMMC 5.1 have been launched to deliver more immediate performance than the previous ones.
It is regarded as a principal storage medium for mobile devices and PCs. This chip is directly connected to the main circuit board and the controller within the chip is responsible for managing the data in the memory. The eMMC controller frees up the CPU from the task of data management. Thus, the CPU can emphasize its power and speed on other necessary tasks rather than data handling tasks thus leading to the improvement in the data processing.
The NAND memory in eMMC provides the advantage of little power usage for holding data. It is facilitating the developers to simplify the fabrication process and the entire design of a system which leads to the quick development of a system. FORESEE eMMC compiles the JEDEC standard interface and gets easily integrated into several systems without any hardware commissioning. FORESEE memory is assisting the developers by shortening the development cycle complications and complexities.
The market is loaded with different versions of eMMC products, each brand product having distinct features and different quality parameters. Longsys is listing all the principal eMMC products that are important for certain sectors such as eMMC, subsize eMMC, industrial eMMC and automotive eMMC.
FORESEE eMMC product is developed on the values of versatile compatibility, stability, reliability, and sustainability for boosting the operations of a wide range of applications such as dashcams, smartphones, tablets, laptops, STB, GPS systems, etc. It is employing the new versions of the LPDC controller that quickly manages the memory operations. The high level of power failure technology is upgrading the service life of this chip as well as retaining the data in case of a power loss scenario. It is offering the quickest and highest storage density from 4GB to 256GB. Now, low-spaced systems can rapidly process data and can handle the vast amount of data very effectively. This standard product has given new opportunities for developers to come up with systems having more rapid computation operations than ever.
The other frontier is subsize eMMC which is a gift for the IoT industry. It is a miniature version of the chip that promises to save PCB space up to 55% more than a standard eMMC product. It can provide storage from 4GB to 32GB, precise for smartwatches, smart bands, earphones, and IPC. This miniature chip has further less power usage than standard eMMC. All embedded memory chips are fed with cutting-edge technologies such as ECC, power safeguard, refresh mode, health monitoring, wear balance management, and bad block management to provide the best experience of computing.
This category of products is designed to work relentlessly in a tough working scenario. The in-house firmware assures the excellent reliability and stability of components in extreme working conditions. The industrial-grade product is not offering high storage facilities but also promotes efficient read/write performances. It is reducing the strain on the CPU by itself managing the data storage and processing tasks. For the automotive industry, Longsys is featuring automotive-grade eMMC that are AEC-Q100 qualified. The automotive chips power up the vehicle multimedia systems, dash cams, wifi routers, etc.
Two categories of eMMC are ruling over the world one is consumer eMMCs and the other one is industrial eMMCs. Both types have significant importance in certain sectors. These two categories of eMMC look similar in appearance but have distinct features and capacities. Industrial eMMC is particularly launched to satisfy the emerging storage requirements of complex systems requiring higher densities, non-volatility, and higher endurance. It quickly starts the booting operation which makes it a suitable medium for storing massive amounts of data. Industrial grade eMMC has an operating temperature range between -40°C to 85°C and -40°C to 105°C while consumer products have a range between -25°C to 85°C.
Wide ranges of eMMC providers are supplying both types of eMMC. Developers can blindly trust FORESEE products as FORESEE Industrial eMMC is powering up complex enterprise applications by providing storage facilities from 8GB to 128GB while the consumer eMMC is designed to boost handheld devices by offering storage facilities from 4GB to 256GB. The high endurance and innovative features of our embedded products grab the attention of developers. Each eMMC product comes with ECC circuitry that is in charge of maintaining data consistency and correctness. Industrial products have a high level of dynamic data refresh mode which results in efficient and smooth processing in an extreme working scenario.
Memory devices such as eMMCs, SSDs, and HDDs have a wide scope in the storage industry. Each unit is important for a certain sector and eMMC is contributing a lot to the development of the IoT industry. Recognizing the importance of embedded solutions in the market, Longsys is continuing to innovate and invest in new technology, which means we're staying ahead of the curve.
