Western Digital Corp. has introduced the first 3D TLC NAND automotive embedded UFS flash drive (EFD). The Western Digital iNAND AT EU312 EFD was inspired by the UFS 2.1 interface delivering high capacities and up to 2.5 times the performance of the company’s previous e.MMC-based products.
It’s made to run in V2X environments, both in vehicle and infrastructure systems, with constant generating and streaming data for real-time and offline data analytics.
Western Digital iNAND AT EU312 UFS EFD Features:
- High Capacity: Available from 16GB to 256GB based on 3D NAND technology
- Performance: Delivers write speeds up to 550 MB/s and read speeds up to 800 MB/s**
- Automotive Quality and Reliability: Features advanced memory management firmware and hardware, including robust error correction eode (ECC), and satisfies JEDEC47, ISO26262, and AEC-Q100 Grade 3 and Grade 2 standards
- Expanded Smart Features for OEMs: Western Digital provides a suite of automotive smart features, including enhanced power failure protection, a comprehensive memory health status monitor, enhanced SLC LUN, and OEM configurable boot partitioning
“As modern vehicles add more data-rich capabilities, such as machine vision, 3D mapping, multi-camera and multi-sensor-based systems and AI-driven databases, the need for bigger, faster, more reliable data storage has skyrocketed,” said Oded Sagee, Western Digital’s senior director, product marketing. “Leveraging more than 16 years of automotive design experience, including advanced 3D TLC NAND technology built with Western Digital’s own NAND flash controllers, firmware and assembly and test, the new Western Digital iNAND AT EU312 EFD provides automotive OEMs and tier-one manufacturers the scalability in storage capacity, performance and reliability that will be the foundation of future mobility experiences.”
