15nm eMMC NAND Flash targets automotive applications
Toshiba Electronics Europe announces a range of 15nm eMMC (embedded MultiMediaCard) NAND Flash memory for automotive infotainment and industrial applications. Available in an 11.5x13mm package that is fully compliant with the latest JEDEC eMMC standard, Toshiba’s 15nm eMMC chips are among the world's smallest.
The automotive eMMC supports a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +85°C and meets AEC-Q100 specifications as well as adhering to PPAP requirements.
The new line-up of single-package embedded NAND flash memories is extremely well-suited to the demanding requirements of the automotive infotainment market, and includes densities from 8 to 64GB. Each device integrates a controller to manage basic control functions for NAND applications.
According to industry analyst firm Gartner, the majority of vehicles will be connected to the internet within five years, with 60 to 75% of them being capable of consuming, creating and sharing web-based data. From maps and weather conditions to voice recognition, entertainment, driver assist features and more - cars are quickly becoming much more than just modes of transportation. Accelerated processing power and increased data storage capacity are crucial to enabling all of this connectivity, and Toshiba’s eMMC NAND Flash memory has emerged as the data storage technology of choice for automotive applications.
