SEOUL, Korea – Feb 8, 2018 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a universe personality in modernized memory technology, currently announced that it has begun mass prolongation of a 256-gigabyte (GB) embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) solution with modernized facilities formed on automotive specifications from a JEDEC UFS 3.0 standard, for a initial time in a industry.

Following a memory breakthrough of a automotive industry’s initial 128GB eUFS in September, 2017, Samsung’s 256GB eUFS is now being shipped to automotive manufacturers scheming a marketplace for Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), next-generation infotainment systems and new-age dashboards in oppulance vehicles.

As thermal government is essential for automotive memory applications, Samsung’s 256GB eUFS extends a heat operation to between -40°C and 105°C for both operational and power-saving modes. Warranties for required embedded multimedia label (eMMC) 5.1 solutions generally cover -25°C to 85°C for vehicles in operation and -40°C to 85°C when in idle or power-saving mode.

“With a new heat threshold for vehicle warranties, vital automotive manufacturers can now design-in memory that’s even good matched for impassioned environments and know they will be removing rarely arguable performance,” said Kyoung Hwan Han, clamp boss of NAND selling during Samsung Electronics. “Starting with high-end vehicles, we design to enhance a business portfolio opposite a whole automotive market, while accelerating expansion in a reward memory segment.”

Samsung’s 256GB eUFS not usually can simply continue a new heat specification, notwithstanding a heat-sensitive inlet of memory storage, though also by a heat presentation feature, a sensor will forewarn a horde focus processor (AP) when a device heat exceeds 105°C or any pre-set level. The AP would afterwards umpire a time speed to reduce a heat to an excusable level.

Sequential reads for a 256GB eUFS can strech 850 megabytes per second (MB/s), that is during a high finish of a stream JEDEC UFS 2.1 standard, and pointless review operations come in during 45,000 IOPS. In addition, a information modernise underline speeds adult estimate and enables larger complement trustworthiness by relocating comparison information to other less-used cells.

The heat notification, grown by Samsung, and information modernise facilities are enclosed in UFS specification, chronicle 3.0, that was announced final month by JEDEC, a tellurian semiconductor standards organization.

Samsung skeleton to accelerate a record partnerships with tellurian automakers and member providers, and continue expanding a eUFS choice with an aim to lead a reward memory market.
