Solid-state drives (SSDs) and embedded Multi-Media Cards (eMMCs) both use NAND flash memory. They are found in similar electronic devices and perform similar tasks. However, the choice for an SSD or eMMC matters significantly from the design phase through the user phase and determines, among other things, the performance and price. In this blog post, […]

The eMMC memory chip market is forecast to rise steadily this year and for years to come. With new 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB industrial grade products as workhorses and 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB wide-temperature range products for automotive and other extreme environment applications, SMARTsemi is the supplier to qualify today. We’re dedicated to delivering tier-1 quality components with […]

Embedded MultiMediaCards (eMMCs) and Secure Digital (SD) cards have been key components in the memory industry for decades. Even though Universal Flash Storage (UFS) was introduced to the market more than ten years ago as a replacement, eMMC and SD/microSD cards are still widely used, and demand is forecast to rise steadily year over year, […]

Secure Digital™ (SD) cards are a staple in the memory industry. The SD card is found in a plethora of industrial applications and is a popular storage media for consumers. Its popularity can be attributed to its flexibility, low power consumption, and small, portable form factor. SD cards can be used as removable or fixed […]

At the early stages of product design and launch, the costs of engineering electronic applications are high. Unit costs can be brought down with volume over time. In contrast, the non-recurring engineering costs from the drawing board to the prototype circuit board add up and are often a limiting factor for new product development and […]

Over the past decade, more than a petabyte – this is 1 million Gigabytes – worth of NAND flash memory has been shipped across the globe. Invented almost 40 years ago, NAND storage products are a commodity today, used in most commercial electronics like smartphones, tablets, and game consoles. NAND flash memory doesn’t need power […]

To improve efficiency and decrease latency, computing power is increasingly placed in the field. Whether on the factory floor, in outdoor kiosks, or for defense equipment, more and more devices and tools find themselves in locations with temperatures varying across a wide range. Harsh and fluctuating environmental conditions and SWaP-constrained (Space, Weight, and Power) systems […]

Industrial applications are increasingly operating autonomously with minimal human intervention. In that environment, the demands regarding quality and reliability for memory components are stringent. From the outside, commercial and industrial grade products often look similar or even identical. A commercial grade DRAM can have the exact same density, speed, and form factors as its industrial […]
