Finding the Right Automotive Memory Solution

Infotainment in Car

 

Embedded memory solutions are gaining in importance in the automotive industry. As cars become increasingly advanced and reliant on technology, embedded memory is becoming more and more critical to ensuring that all of the internal components function as expected—all within a constrained space and rugged operating conditions. For this reason, industrial embedded memory cards are playing a central role in auto innovation, and a reliable memory solution is becoming as key to a quality automobile as horsepower. Take a closer look at how embedded memory solutions are changing the automotive industry.

 

Why are memory cards so important to the automotive industry?

Today’s cars are no longer reliant on just combustion and mechanics, but are instead designed around electronic functions that allow cars to be quieter, smoother, and of course, safer. These electronic functions require a memory solution. In fact, the automotive industry makes up at least 5% (and climbing) of the total market for memory. As cars become increasingly advanced and autonomous cars become more common, the importance of reliable memory will continue to grow.

 

Memory cards are used in a variety of on-board operations in cars. Just a few of the areas in which memory is used in cars includes:

  • Engine control
  • Airbag deployment
  • Electronic power steering
  • Automatic braking
  • Keyless entry
  • Rear cameras
  • Auto-dimming lights
  • Infotainment Systems 
  • Seat system controls

 

What kinds of memory solutions work in cars?

The same memory that you might find in a commercial device like a laptop or cellphone will not stand up to the rigors of use in an automobile. For automotive memory, manufacturers typically opt for industrial grade solutions. Industrial grade memory can stand up to the operating conditions that are usually found in cars, including extreme temperatures and high levels of shock and vibration.

 

An industrial grade memory solution will also feature SLC flash technology. SLC has the longest lifespan of any kind of flash memory, and it is also the least likely to experience issues with data corruption. It is reliable enough for the sensitive operations that must be performed to keep modern automobiles running.
