Intelligent Power Consumption

Power Fail

 

The power consumption of embedded storage devices is one of the leading factors that designers and OEMs consider when selecting memory cards. Memory systems that require a large amount of power from the host device are not viable and prevent the efficient use of the host device. However, improving the performance of the host device is only one reason why low power needs are important for memory cards. The demand for intelligent power usage is also growing. Intelligent power consumption refers not just to the power demands of the embedded memory, but also to the power needs of the entire host system. The increased interconnectivity of devices has spurred interest in ways that these shared connections can also decrease power usage. For industrial applications, intelligent power consumption can have a drastic impact on the ability of industries to go green and reduce their carbon footprint.

 

Understanding Flash Memory Benefits

Today, many embedded memory solutions are designed with flash memory. Flash memory is much more efficient than random access memory, or RAM. RAM is volatile memory, which means that it needs to have a power source in order to maintain the data that it stores. The need for power for data storage in RAM represents a significant obstacle for host devices and does not align with the demand for more efficient power usage.

 

Flash memory, on the other hand, is non-volatile. As such, it maintains data without the need to have any access to power. RAM is somewhat faster than flash memory, but the difference in speed is hardly noticeable and certainly not significant enough to offset the costs and lack of efficiency associated with RAM’s power usage.

 

Achieving Intelligent Power Consumption

Using non-volatile memory is a step in the right direction for more intelligent power consumption. This is particularly true for industrial customers. Using flash memory for industrial applications means that designers can create devices that are more energy efficient. Given the scale of industrial operations, this can have a significant impact on overall energy consumption.
