Using an Embedded USB Flash Module for Industrial Storage

eUSB- Delkin Devices USB Embedded Drive

 

Embedded USB flash modules bring industrial grade storage with USB functionality to applications that need a flexible, small-sized storage solution. Nearly every processor supports USB interfaces, so this small-form embedded storage option is easy to adopt and integrate across a range of devices and applications. The embedded USB flash module—also known as eUSB—is valued for its low power consumption and fast access times. For many industrial applications, this storage solution is superior to other options.

 

Embedded USB Flash Module Technical Specs

Embedded USB storage is available in several different capacities, ranging from 128MB to 32GB. As industrial grade storage, eUSBs can withstand extreme shock and vibration without any loss of functioning. This solution offers sequential read speeds of up to 32MB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 30MB/s. With SLC format, 234 TBW is standard.

 

Temperature ruggedness is another feature of embedded USB that is essential for industrial users. This form of storage can operate in conditions as cold as -40 degrees C. On the higher end of the scale, the storage is functional at up to 85 degrees C. It can withstand even more extreme temperatures during storage without any data loss or compromised function.

 

Other Design Features

Embedded USB flash modules are available with multiple connector options, as well as fixed disk and removable configurations. They are compliant with High Speed USB 2.0 specifications. Advanced wear leveling algorithms and ECC help to maximize the lifespan of the storage and prevent premature wearing due to read and write operations.

 

For OEMs, embedded USB flash modules are customizable in a variety of ways, including through conformal coating, content loading, content duplication, and custom labels. All of these features—coupled with the ease of integration of USBs—makes this form factor popular in industrial applications for use as a boot drive.
