Expanded eMMC offering with new solid-state storage solutions

04-10-2023 | Alliance Memory | Industrial

Alliance Memory has introduced new 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB industrial-grade eMMC solutions. For solid-state storage in consumer, industrial, and networking applications, the ASFC32G31T3-51BIN, ASFC64G31T5-51BIN, and ASFC128G32T5-51BIN integrate high-reliability TLC NAND flash memory with an eMMC controller and FTL management software in a single 11.5mm x 13mm 153-ball FBGA package.

The devices released today are compliant with the JEDEC eMMC v5.1 industry standard, supporting features such as boot operation, RPMB, device health report, field firmware updates, power-off notification, enhanced strobe features for faster and more reliable operation, write levelling, HPI, secure trim/erase, and high-speed HS200 and HS400 modes. The ASFC32G31T3-51BIN, ASFC64G31T5-51BIN, and ASFC128G32T5-51BIN are also backwards-compatible with eMMC v4.5 and v5.0.

The eMMCs will be used in smartwatches, tablets, digital TVs, set-top boxes, VR and AR headsets, digital cameras, CCTV, infotainment, surveillance, automation, point-of-sale systems, and emerging embedded applications. For designers, the ASFC32G31T3-51BIN, ASFC64G31T5-51BIN, and ASFC128G32T5-51BIN simplify designs for fast and easy system integration in these products, speeding up product development and time to market while saving space by eliminating the need for an external controller. In addition, the device's FTL software provides high reliability and stable performance with wear levelling and bad block management.

"With our latest eMMCs, we've extended our offering to include densities from 4GB all the way up to 128GB, providing designers with a wide range of options to meet their mass storage needs and solidifying our position as a leading supplier of eMMC technology," said David Bagby, president and CEO, Alliance Memory. "Furthermore, with their TLC NAND flash technology, our new 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB solutions deliver even higher reliability, endurance, and performance while maintaining the same ease of integration as our lower density devices."

The devices operate over an industrial temperature range of -40C to +85C and offer programmable bus widths of x1, x4, and x8. The device's NAND memory with internal LDO can be powered with a single 3V supply voltage, while the controller can be powered by 1.8V or 3V dual supply voltages.

Samples of the eMMCs are available now.
