Greenliant Systems, a producer of industrial solid-state storage products, is now mass producing its eMMC NANDriveTM embedded solid-state drives (SSDs). This will provide customers with data storage in a small ball grid array (BGA) form factor that is able to withstand the severest of conditions, including temperature extremes from -40 to 185 degrees Fahrenheit.
All models of the eMMC NANDrive SSDs will have identical space requirements of 14mm x 18mm, in a 100-ball package with 1mm ball pitch for extended reliability. The GLS85VM devices comply with JEDEC eMMC 4.4x and 4.3 standards and the manufacturing facilities are ISO 9001:2008-certified.
The eMMC NANDrive is based on Greenliant’s own internally-developed NAND controller. The eMMC NANDrive also features wear-leveling, bad block management and error correction code (ECC) capabilities, all of which contribute to dramatically extending product life.
Nobu Higuchi, vice president of application engineering and product market at Greenliant Systems, said in a statement, “From industrial computers and sensors to instrumentation and automotive systems, eMMC has been rapidly adopted by Intel Bay Trail and a growing number of ARM (News - Alert)-based platforms. eMMC NANDrive is ideally positioned to serve a variety of high-reliability applications.”
NANDrive is offered in either 2-bits-per-cell (MLC) or 1-bit-per-cell (SLC) NAND that has advanced wear-leveling, bad block management and error correction code (ECC) capabilities. The GLS85VM series of eMMC NANDrive SSDs are available immediately, and can be ordered via Greenliant’s authorized distributors. Customers are also able to request NANDrive product samples and evaluation boards.
GLS85VM series eMMC NANDrive SSDs can be ordered and purchased through Greenliant authorized sales channels. NANDrive enables embedded system designers to quickly integrate mass data storage solutions. It can solve the compatibility and obsolescence issues of pairing a NAND controller with new NAND flash devices.
