Using Embedded Flash Storage in the Industrial Internet of Things

 

Delkin Devices Industrial IoT ConceptThe internet of things, or IoT, is a complex network of connections between different devices with embedded features. It is changing the landscape of nearly every aspect of life, and as an increasing number of devices achieve this kind of connectivity, the power and usefulness of technology will increase as well.

 

The industrial internet of things, or IIoT, refers to interconnectivity and automation between industrial devices. IIoT encompasses many different industries and needs, but in all of them, storage is a central issue. For devices to be secure and useful components of the IIoT, their storage has to be faster and more reliable than the storage used in consumer devices. Industrial grade embedded flash storage is the solution for IIoT applications. It provides the performance and security necessary to be part of this vast network.

 

What is included in the IIoT?

The IoT itself is the concept of allowing nearly any device with a power switch to connect to the internet as well as to other devices that are also online. For example, a smartphone and a coffee pot may both connect to the internet and connect to each other, so that when an alarm you set on your phone goes off in the morning, the coffee begins to brew right away.

 

The IIoT does much the same thing, except it connects industrial grade devices and applications. Through the IIoT, a component in an airplane that is on its way to failing could send an alert to the ground mechanics, who can then repair it before it fails completely and causes a delay in travel, saving money and improving customer satisfaction. The IIoT has tremendous ability to improve efficiency in a long list of industries, including transportation, healthcare, automation, supply-chain management, and much more.

 

What unique storage needs are required for IIoT devices?

All industrial grade applications have stringent needs for storage. Industrial grade embedded flash storage offers fast and reliable performance for devices that are part of the IIoT. Industrial embedded flash storage operates in extended temperature ranges and can tolerate a high level of shock and vibration without any loss of functioning. This grade of embedded storage relies on SLC NAND flash in which one bit of data is stored per cell. As a result, data reading and writing happen quickly and there is minimal risk of power-failure data loss.
