Embedded Systems for Power Applications


When it comes to applications in the power industry, unreliability is simply not an option. Failures can have drastic impacts on homes, businesses, and even entire communities, which leads most power industry suppliers to rely on industrial grade embedded memory solutions. This kind of memory provides the reliability necessary for power applications that are frequently used in rugged operating conditions. Here are the facts that anyone who works in the power industry needs to know about choosing embedded systems for power applications.


The challenges of reliability in power applications are unique.

Unlike in other industries, virtually every power application is used in rugged conditions. Temperature extremes and intense levels of shock and vibration encountered by power applications are typically too severe for embedded memory that’s designed for the commercial market. Instead, designers of power applications can benefit from opting for industrial-level memory with SLC flash. Industrial embedded memory is designed to tolerate high and low temperatures, as well as extreme temperature fluctuations. Additionally, Delkin’s industrial products are made using assembly processes that enhance each embedded system’s ability to withstand shock and vibration. These designs reduce the risk of data corruption associated with embedded system failures triggered by extreme operating conditions.


Long-term data logging issues in the power industry can be managed with SLC NAND flash memory.

Power applications rely on long-term data logging. It is typical for the logged data to be critical for ensuring that the application is performing as expected. SLC, or single-level cell, NAND flash memory increases the security of long-term data logging. With SLC flash memory, only one bit of data is stored on each cell. Since only one bit of data has to be programmed per cell, the chances of data being lost or corrupted due to a power failure are drastically reduced. Additionally, only having one bit of data on each cell increases the read and write speeds of the embedded memory significantly. Faster speeds translate to seamless power delivery, which is crucial for power applications.


Industrial memory comes with a locked BOM, which also reduces the risk of application failures.

A locked BOM is one of the biggest advantages of industrial embedded systems. BOM stands for bill of materials. When the BOM is locked, it means that no component that is critical to the system, including the firmware and controller, will be changed without advanced notice. A new product number will also be issued if a component will change. This eliminates the chance of compatibility issues that could lead to unexpected failures in the field.
