eUSB- Delkin Devices USB Embedded Drive

 

Embedded Universal Serial Bus, or eUSB, is a popular storage option for industrial applications. It offers reliable storage, even in taxing conditions, while only taking up a small amount of real estate. Users of eUSBs praise the small form factor and low power consumption of this kind of memory, as well as the fast access times it delivers. This eUSB wiki provides an overview of what engineers and OEMs need to know about this memory solution.

 

eUSB Overview

eUSB is a form of NAND Flash memory. It works similarly to external USB memory and is compliant with USB industry standards. However, it is embedded in applications. Using USB as a format means that this kind of memory is compatible with an enormous range of applications, making it easy to integrate into a variety of devices across multiple industries.

 

eUSB Integration

Typically, it is not necessary to make any BIOS modifications or to use any additional device drivers in order to integrate eUSB storage. eUSB devices come with 10-pin headers that are available in multiple stand-off heights and pitches, so that they can easily match the processor board. Customization of eUSB storage is possible in accordance with the needs of the industrial application in which it is being used.

 

Benefits of eUSB

There are many reasons that engineers and OEMs opt for eUSB memory. It is a comprehensive storage solution that reduces the production turnaround time of applications thanks to the easy integration. eUSB is available with SLC NAND Flash—which is the type of memory that is usually recommended for industrial applications thanks to its increased data protection and ability to operate in harsh conditions. Additionally, this storage solution can be used for a boot device for most standard BIOS and boasts a capacity of up to 32GB.

 

Industrial eUSB

Industrial grade eUSB is usually used in data-sensitive applications, such as gaming, transportation, and healthcare. In addition to SLC memory, industrial eUSB drives will not undergo changes in the Flash chip, controller, firmware, connector, or configuration unless the parts number is changed. This controlled bill of materials prevents industrial users from experiencing errors in the field that are caused by unanticipated compatibility issues.

 

Delkin offers both eUSB and industrial USB Flash drives that combine small size and reliability with the customization necessary for the unique needs of industrial users. To get specific guidance regarding your storage needs, please contact our product team.
