Western Digital iNAND AT EU552 UFS 3.1 Embedded Flash Drives ASPICE CL3 Certification

To meet needs of automotive industry

More than mere modes of transportation, today’s software-defined vehicles are a result of the ongoing transformation of the automobile from a product that is mainly hardware-based to a software-centric device on wheels.

Premium vehicles today can have up to 150 million lines of software code, distributed among hundreds of electronic control units (ECUs), sensors, cameras, Lidar and more.

It is critical for automotive OEMs to ensure the quality and reliability of these software-intensive systems. Automotive SPICE (Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination) is an industry-standard guideline for evaluating the automotive embedded software development process. This ISO/IEC 15504 standard proves the software and development capabilities of automotive suppliers and manufacturers meet OEM requirements and incorporate best practices throughout the automotive software development cycle.

With its iNAND AT EU552 UFS 3.1 embedded flash drives, Western Digital Corp. is one of the 1st storage manufacturers to achieve ASPICE CL3 (level 3) for a storage device. ASPICE CL3 moves beyond the ‘Managed’ CL2 tier to ‘Established’ at CL3, reflecting a level of maturity where processes are well-defined, standardized and actively managed. In order to achieve ASPICE CL3 certification, the development of the iNAND AT EU552 UFS 3.1 had to begin with ASPICE in mind from day one.

Fueling future of smart, connected cars
