Industrial Robotics

Memory components and cards are at the heart of every industrial robot, whether in the controller or sensors and used for data logging.


DRAM is used in a combination of smart sensors and industrial equipment now at the core vision of Industry 4.0, intended to increase productivity, improve reliability, and lower operating costs. Robots use integrated memory to support intelligence, capabilities, and flexibility.


FLASH memory is used for data logging at the edge at each individual motor (as much as 16Mb per motor), critical to factory uptime and to resume work quickly in the event of a power loss. It also enables safety functionality to move to the motor, eliminating the latency of round-trip controller communications.

Industrial Robotics Updates

As the world embraces Industry 4.0, the convergence of artificial intelligence (AI), the Internet of Things (IoT), and advanced automation is revolutionizing industrial robotics and manufacturing. The lies the evolution of edge computing, the adoption of AI-driven supply chain optimization, and the imperative for energy-efficient manufacturing processes. Semiconductor technologies, particularly high-performance DRAM and Flash memory solutions play […]
Industrial robotics has transformed factories. From cutting costs and increasing efficiency to improving safety and even boosting sustainability, industrial robots are one of the biggest leaps in the history of manufacturing. While the first “industrial robots” appeared over a century ago, the real advancements came with the start of the computer era. Today, state-of-the-art industrial robotics is driven by […]
Industrial applications often perform mission-critical tasks. Additionally, technological advancements are making industrial robotics increasingly autonomous. With very little human intervention on the one side but high standards for safety and reliability on the other side, the demands on data storage for industrial systems are stringent, including on the efficiency, speed, access, and capacity of the […]
When it comes to industrial applications, the bar is high: The equipment and devices in industrial manufacturing often perform crucial operations and handle critical data. A malfunction or failure is not just costly, it is often dangerous. When a consumer product fails, the user gets frustrated, but overall the damage is limited. A failure in […]
According to the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), the robotics market will grow between 25% and 35% annually for the next decade. By 2030, BCG expects that the sale of commercial and industrial robots together could generate $260 billion as demand from manufacturers continues to increase. The industry bounced back quickly from the pandemic as different […]
