Swissbit AG will be exhibiting its latest memory innovations at the Flash Memory Summit 2017 in Santa Clara, CA.

 e.MMC EM-20

The company will present additions to the 6Gb SATA SSD X-60 product range as well as an embedded USB 3.1 module optimized to perform as a durable boot medium. Further highlights will be the solid e.MMC EM-20 and a NVMe PCIe M.2 module prototype featuring low power consumption. With its focus on the NetCom and IoT markets, the firm will also be participating in the Summit's conference program with a presentation entitled Improving Lifetime Estimates for Embedded Flash.

U-500 embedded USB 3.1-module optimized as durable boot medium

Embedded USB flash modules from the company are a boot medium for telecommunications applications. The firm is introducing the U-500 USB 3.1 module. The product sets offers a durable SLC-NAND, and also by its controller, which has been designed for boot media requiring reliability and durability over many years. The key feature is data care management that refreshes degrading NAND pages in read-mode. Thanks to a 10Gb/s data rate of USB 3.1 Gen 2, boot times can be reduced with the U-500.

For FMS visitors
For the first time, the company will present N-10: a prototype of its NVMe PCIe M.2 module. It is tailored to the requirements of telecommunications and embedded systems. Whilst the 4-lane/8-channel NVMe products are tuned for high data rate, company's N-10 has a different focus: With its 2-lane/4-channel architecture, it can offer more than double the performance of an SSD with 6Gb SATA interface, and reduces power consumption. The memory module can even be used in fanless systems. This would hardly be conceivable with conventional NVMe-SSDs with x4-PCIe connection. The NVMe PCIe M.2 module is based on 3D NAND and features a special industrial-grade controller.

Robust and durable
The company has specialized in robust and durable storage solutions for industrial and other demanding applications. Traditionally this is the domain of SLC, but the company's makes MLC a viable option for such applications. As an example, the recently launched e.MMC EM-20, an MLC-based memory card, is also available in pSLC mode which increases endurance by a factor of 6.7.


The SATA Gen 3 SSD range from the firm will be a further show-highlight. The 6Gb SATA SSDs from the X-60 product range offer storage densities between 8 and 960GB. They are available in five different models and are characterized by their durabit firmware. This brand-name unites technologies for the better use of MLC chips. New additions are an M.2 SSD with 1TB based on 3D NAND, as well as an M.2-SSD with greater protection against loss of data in case of power failure.

Selection and advice
"Our small-form factor products, the newly introduced e.MMC EM-20 and our security solutions successfully position us in the highly competitive IIoT market," says Ulrich Brandt, director, marketing, Swissbit. "We are looking forward to the Flash Memory Summit. We are confident that with the wide selection of SLC, MLC and pSLC products displayed on our booth along with expert advice from our colleagues and partners, customers from industries such as telecommunications, industrial and IIoT will discover that Swissbit offers the most suitable product for their application."
