Energy Applications Embedded Systems

 

Embedded systems are hardware and/or software systems inside of larger computing systems that perform a dedicated task or function. When it comes to energy applications, embedded systems are crucial. Embedded memory in energy applications not only has to be reliable, but it also has to be able to tolerate rugged conditions, including high operating temperatures. Failure of data storage in an energy application is not an option, as such an outage could have far-reaching implications for entire communities. Energy applications embedded systems with SLC flash memory offer the high level of reliability that designers and OEMs require.

Embedded Storage Needs for Energy Applications

Energy applications have unique demands that require specialized storage solutions. Often, energy applications are used in environments in which temperatures are likely to be high or in which temperatures fluctuate rapidly. These applications are also prone to higher than normal levels of shock and vibration. Each of these factors can compromise the reliability of embedded storage if the storage does not meet certain design standards that allow it to tolerate these kinds of conditions.

 

SLC Embedded Systems in Energy Applications

For energy applications, high-endurance SLC flash-based embedded systems are typically recommended. SLC, or single-level cell, flash is memory in which one bit of data is stored per cell. Storing one bit of data on each cell means that the memory works as quickly as possible and also has a very low risk of data corruption in program cycles. It is the highest grade of flash memory available.

 

SLC flash also has another advantage that is important for energy applications. It is very tolerant of temperature extremes, so it will not lose functionality in environments in which temperatures spike or drop, even if they cycle rapidly. Additionally, SLC flash is also able to tolerate high levels of shock and vibration, increasing the reliability of the embedded memory system.
