Advantech has adopted the KIOXIA 112-Layer flash BiCS5 in multiple series and form factors. The new BiCS5 3D TLC SQFlash BiCS5 offers NAND chips with extended native temperature ranges that provide reliable operation in extreme environments and support employment in applications that demand ruggedised designs.

The solution provides 50% faster flash speeds than past NAND generation technology, inducing performance and smooth presence - essential attributes in high-resolution display applications such as gaming/medical displays and indoor/outdoor signage. Likewise, its SQFlash offers up to 8TB capacity for 5G and WIFI6 data transmission and AI analytical data storage employed in edge computing, gaming, AI and smart manufacturing industries applications.

The solution supports SSD operation in wide temperature environments (-40C to 85C), making it an outstanding choice for energy sourcing facilities, automated factories, and in-vehicle applications that need advanced reliability in harsh environments. Also, the products leverage the company's DeviceOn/SQ Manager Software for real-time performance/health monitoring and lifespan prediction.

The series includes a comprehensive selection of security features with broad coverage of a TCG-OPAL compliant design. Likewise, Flash Vault utilises a password to secure the drive; hardware and firmware write protection to stop data replacement/removal and crypto erase to facilitate full data sanitisation on the SQFlash.
