The automotive industry is on its way to introducing innovative systems in vehicles that make the driving experience more comfortable and charming. For this, engineers demand high-power memory technologies that are compact enough to endure the vehicle environment. The memory solutions such as HDDs and SD cards are the leading choice of engineers when it comes to managing the functionality of the low-powered application. But these memory fixtures are not able enough to cope with the memory needs of the newest car applications. As the automotive industry is constantly evolving and changing so engineers have been switching from hard disk drives to eMMC.
There is going to be a major shift in how in-vehicle storage is managed and used in the automotive industry in the coming years. Automotive eMMC promises a great future for handling advanced car application data such as automatic driving systems and car infotainment systems.
eMMC is a term used for the embedded multimedia card. This is the newer memory technology that is designed to beat the performance of hard disk drives and is utilized in a wide range of industries including the automobile industry. Automotive eMMC belongs to industrial-grade cards that have a standard size, tough firmware, easy interface design, and excellent throughput than standard eMMCs. The miniature form factor and its easy interface determine the memory strength of any industrial unit.
FORESEE is providing an eMMC products that is comprised of a 3D NAND flash, LPDC controller, and MMC interface unified into a BGA packaging. This kind of BGA chip is known for shortening the development process and making the development more quick and stable. FORESEE automotive solutions are certified with AEC-100 certifications which makes them ideal for high-end car applications. This chip is instilled with an excellent level of power management technology that assures a high level of user experience.
Only robust firmware can tolerate the ever-changing operations of the automobile environment and Thanks to FORESEE solutions that are built by using the in-house compact firmware having features of high endurance up to -40°C to 105°C. The requirement of any industry is quality solutions and automotive eMMC never failed to upgrade the performance of car systems due to its high standards of reliability and longevity measures.
Manufacturers are developing automotive-grade solutions that are specified with innovative features thus making them compete for items in the industry. High data integrity management maintains data consistency. The dynamic block wear leveling technology is managing the load by focusing on continuous read/write operations.
Various series of automotive products are developed by FORESEE such as Grade 2 and Grade 3 automotive eMMC that are compiling the advanced eMMC 5.1 interface, providing pSLC, MLC, and 3D Flash NAND memory choices. These memory mediums are precise for offering an excellent level of endurance for car systems. Automotive-grade products are destined to offer higher-density storage for distinct applications. The data integrity, power safeguard, auto refresh, wear leveling, block management, and block safeguard technologies maintain the smooth performance of these applications.
Automotive eMMC is built to power up the applications of the vehicle and is playing a key role in managing high-end automated car applications. This chip is instructed to make driving better by providing memory support, enhancing the service period, and high level of map navigation.
This chip is benefiting the dash cameras by offering a higher storage facility to manage big files smoothly. This small-size memory package gets smoothly integrated to dash cams. Other solutions like SD cards and TF cards are not able to manage the big files and engineers avoid these slow fixtures. The quick data reading/writing features of eMMC attract the engineers and its applications in dash cams further improve the robustness and stability of dash cams. FORESEE eMMC is built with all the required features that extend the service life of these cams and provide the best recording experience for the user.
TF cards have less reliability than eMMC chips. These cards can break easily and can be lost or dislocated. The malfunctioning of a system may result in data loss. The mistreatment of this card leads to poor data performance. The TF cards are sensitive and get damaged quickly. That’s why eMMC is the perfect choice of engineers for handling recording data.
The advanced features of eMMC make it an ideal choice for car GPS systems. The higher density of eMMC makes it possible to keep a record of a vehicle's activity and gives the benefit of tracking the location of the vehicle and one can have exact control over the geographical location of a vehicle. This chip is facilitating navigation and provides stable roadmaps for quick navigation. Latest car applications are highly dependent on FORESEE eMMC because of its maximum storage, quick read/write cycles, bad block handling, standard memory mediums, power safety, and non-volatility.
Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) is wide-spreading in automobiles and is expanding its scope and performance by using eMMC fixtures for providing the fastest performance. It is a wide range of advanced applications that are providing a comfortable driving experience to users. ADAS is promoting lane detection, collision prevention, and automotive driving technologies. The use of eMMC in an image processing system is assisting the vehicle to quickly sense the surroundings.
eMMC is no doubt a high-density, high-performance, energy-efficient embedded memory chip and is promising a bright future for automotive as well as other sectors. This chip is enabling the in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems to provide occupants with a wide range of functions such as entertainment, navigation, and communication without stressing out the memory. Longsys is focused on continuing to provide best-in-class automotive products and services to customers. To do this, we're investing in new technologies and capabilities that will help us meet the ever-changing needs of the market.
