Bronschhofen, Switzerland. June 1, 2017 - Swissbit, a leading manufacturer of flash memory solutions, presents its latest technology for the industrial market: the embedded Multimedia card EM-20. The eMMC combines an industrial controller with reliable multi-level cell (MLC) flash in a BGA153 package making it possible to solder the memory directly onto the printed circuit board of the target application. With capacities from 8 to 64 GB, all typical applications are covered. EM-20 replaces thus far commonly used NAND memory chips, which depend on elaborate operating system resources. Thanks to its integrated controller, flash management functionality and standardized interface, EM-20 can be easily designed-in to applications and offers a variety of key features. The firmware is designed for use as a streamlined and energy-saving boot medium for medical devices, POS/POI terminals or demanding industrial embedded computing applications. As a further distinctive feature, Swissbit's EM-20 can be optionally operated in reliable / pseudo-SLC mode (pSLC).
