Challenges and Requirements
As the architectural framework for self-driving technology, smart cars and the IoV (Internet of Vehicles) gradually matures, vehicular devices are expected to see rapid growth, becoming the driving force in the global semiconductor industry. Flash storage solutions applied in transportation applications require a rugged design to withstand the extreme conditions of environments. From navigation systems, In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) and Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) in vehicles to surveillance and intelligent transportation system outdoors, SSDs and memory are tasked with reliably reading and writing data.
Tough enough to survive anywhere in the world
More than perhaps any other industry, the transportation industry has to develop vehicles and systems that will be used in a variety of harsh environments. From bitterly cold conditions to burning desert landscapes, transportation technology has to resist the extremes of temperature, humidity, dust and vibration. And natural weather systems arenʼt the end of it. Many parts of the world where vehicles need to travel are badly polluted. Luckily, Apacerʼs engineers are seasoned professionals at creating storage solutions that can resist even the most challenging conditions. In order to meet the harsh requirements, Apacer’s industrial solutions feature low power consumption, shock/vibration resistance, wide temperature and Anti-Sulfuration technology, making our automotive storage solutions highly reliable. Apacer’s industrial SSD and DRAM products for in-vehicle systems and the automotive industry are compliant with the United States Military standard MIL-STD-810G.
Voltage instability is no longer a problem
Especially in developing countries or remote areas, voltage supply can sometimes be compromised. The data stored on SSD may be lost or corrupted by any instant power instability. Even worse, it may cause SSD to stop working and lead to system shutdown in the long run. Thatʼs why Apacer has created storage solutions that can mitigate and offset the effects of voltage instability. Thanks to our innovative protection systems, storage solutions will still maintain data integrity and enhance data protection if voltage instability issues occur.
