Momentum for AIoT/IoT core applications

25th February 2019

At embedded world, February 26th to 28th, 2019, Hall 1 / Stand 1-505, Apacer will showcase a full range of storage solutions developed for the AIoT/IoT market. IoT devices often have to run without interruption for extended periods, while still prioritising data integrity. Apacer’s latest products can easily handle long-term uninterrupted read/write operations, while delivering truly impressive cost-benefit results. 

Disk tolerance and operational efficiency have both been improved to better meet the needs of enterprise users. 

Apacer’s ultra-high-speed Turbocharged USB technology aims to set a new standard for data transmission. It offers IOPS read-write speeds that claim to outpace almost anything on the market. Compatible with industrial embedded systems, it can handle fast boot, random read-write access and small log file writing. This makes it a well suited host for operating systems or middleware. 

As AIoT and IoT evolve rapidly, the diversity of SSD storage behaviour has become complex. In order to gather and analyse real-world storage behaviour, Apacer’s Double-barrelled Solution has been developed, with the goal of optimising SSD purchasing for each customer. 

First, the CoreAnalyzer2 software suite examines usage factors such as workload, erasure, continuous data volume and random access. It then suggests preferable SSDs for the workload in question, and can also suggest firmware customisation where appropriate. 

Second, SSDWidget2.0 steps in to allow customers to remotely monitor the health of their SSDs in realtime. This can reduce the likelihood of data loss by anticipating when an SSD will reach the end of its operational lifetime. Together, CoreAnalyzer2 and SSDWidget2.0 make up the Double-barrelled Solution, which is already extending SSD operational lifetimes for buyers around the world. 

Apacer has also developed a new 3D TLC NAND SSD storage solution with carefully selected chips, BiCS3 wafers, 64-layer vertical stacking technology and Over-Provisioning technology. It’s a good choice for IoT applications including automation, transportation, logistics, medical, intelligent manufacturing and smart cities. 

The ability to operate within a wide range of temperatures (-40 to +85°C) means that even under severe conditions, Apacer 3D TLC NAND SSD products will still deliver outstanding performance. The development focus of Apacer 3D NAND based industrial SSD products includes PCIe, 2.5”, M.2, mSATA, MO-297, CFast, CFexpress, SDM, uSSD, USB drive. 

Apacer VLP SODIMM industrial memory supports ECC function and improves data reliability by detecting and correcting data errors. As for the biggest problem of system overheat for IPCs, the industrial-grade wide-temperature IC from original manufacturers is installed to ensure that the memory can still operate normally within a wide temperature range from -40 to +85°C. 

Apacer's VLP DDR4 SODIMM and VLP DDR4 ECC SODIMM industrial-grade memory is less than seven centimetres long and 1.8cm high. It is available in DDR4 2133/2400/2666 specifications for high performance, low power consumption and low latency, and comes in 4GB and 8GB capacities.

Cindy Huang, Director of Apacer’s Vertical Market Application Division, said: “The AIoT/IoT generation has matured alongside 3D NAND technology, and market advantages have lit a fire under to the growth of Apacer's industrial sales. We will continue to develop innovative technologies and products to create a mutually beneficial situation with our customers."
