Automotive electronic technology has progressed rapidly and the industry output value is gargantuan. According to research reports from vehicle testing centers, the proportion of automobiles with information electronic parts will increase by 50% by 2030. Despite the great business opportunities, Alex Li, Deputy General Manager of Longsys's industrial storage division, has reminded interested investors that the automotive field has very high requirements for automotive components. By taking advantage of Longsys's R&D advantages, the technical storage brand of Longsys, FORESEE, launched our automotive eMMC product after a year of research and development. This automotive eMMC meets the requirements for the high reliability of automotive electronics as well as the needs for big data storage and exchange.
The internal environment of automobiles is hostile. The severe dust and high vibration generated during driving will damage the fine-structured components and may loosen the components. In addition, the electromagnetic waves of the motor when the car is started will affect the operation of electronic components. At the same time, the location of use in different geographical environments will also bring challenges to the components. For example, in high-latitude countries, the outdoor temperature is often extremely low in winter, while in summers in tropical countries, the temperature of the automobile during the day can reach up to 50-70℃. Under this condition, the automotive information system needs to read information frequently to maintain the operation of various functions. The FORESEE automotive eMMC products can easily cope with the above problems and provide a complete and stable embedded storage solution.
According to Alex Li, FORESEE automotive eMMC products have passed the AEC-Q100 automotive specifications, which will be able to help automotive equipment pass the validation of the car manufacturer. The products come in different capacities ranging from 8GB to 128GB, allowing them to meet the functional requirements of different automotive systems. In addition, with the ever-increasing amount of electronic map information, navigation has become a must-have application for modern vehicles. To avoid issues with downloading, FORESEE products feature pre-burning support to ensure that no information is lost from pre-recorded data during normal production. In terms of stability, the storage area design of FORESEE automotive eMMC products have been optimized to reduce the probability of system failure and black screens. In addition, information security encrypts private protocols to ensure data integrity.
Alex Li pointed out that FORESEE automotive eMMCs are packaged by a world-class manufacturer. All product series have passed wide-temperature verification. Fixtures have also been developed independently to improve product reliability via strict testing methods. In order to make the product functions of automotive components more flexible, FORESEE separates the two major areas of firmware and application in automotive eMMC products. Users can flexibly adjust the storage area according to their own needs to meet the needs of the market. In addition, FORESEE can customize private protocols for customers to ensure data credibility.
Regarding future plans, Alex Li said that the market has an increasingly higher demand for functions regarding the automotive information system. Therefore, the transmission bandwidth of storage components is bound to be insufficient. FORESEE will seek to match the products of global automotive electronics manufacturers to strengthen the performance of the storage products. In terms of the products, FORESEE will continue extending the automotive product line and will introduce UFS, DRAM, and SSD products over the next few years. In regards to the market, FORESEE will focus on the Chinese automobile market, pay close attention to the dynamics of foreign automakers, and gradually tap into the global market.
