Because of the exponential growth in data transmission and storage, demand for robust memory has intensified for all types of devices that are now connected via the Internet of Things (IoT). This is especially true for industrial IoT (IIoT) and surveillance solutions that must withstand a wide variety of operating conditions, including extreme temperature changes and exposure to harsh environmental elements while functioning as an integrated system.
Performance, density, and reliability are common requirements for today’s complex networking needs. Telecom equipment requires reliable and scalable memory and storage to transmit and process voice and video data as base stations and headend optics platforms have lengthy qualification cycles due to regulatory compliance testing standards – NEBS (Network Equipment-Building System). SMART’s variable temperature testing ensures that its modules will function in any environment, saving maintenance and replacement costs while the DuraFlash solutions with low latency provide high performance and signal integrity for networking and telecom applications.
Despite the obvious differences in the nature of Industrial and medical application, it requires precise instructions in terms of project and device operations, especially in harsh environments. When the operations involve in a matter of human life, it is critical to maintain the accuracy of data output in addition to maintaining continuous, stable operating performance.
Thanks to advanced technology functions and features, both transportation and automotive industries have been undergoing a big transformation, especially in terms of power consumption. Regardless, safety during transportation is still one of the major standards that need to be kept. Memory applications for the transportation industry demand a flexible range of options, whether it's performing in harsh environments or for synchronized computing. SMART’s DuraFlash options can accommodate any vehicle telematics application whether it requires a standard or small form factor.
Data centers require reliable, high-density memory with low latency and low power consumption. In addition, secure storage memory requires data protection and encryption capabilities that are available in a range of speeds, densities, form factors and technologies. To meet the requirements for data center and storage servers, SMART provides a broad range of Memory products, including Persistent Memory (NVDIMM) to provide flexible options to meet the ever-changing needs of fast growing data demand in server and storage applications.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and High-Performance Computing (HPC) are data-intensive applications that generate and process large amounts of data. Low latency and high performance are critical for transforming raw data into usable information. Persistent Memory and Enterprise Memory are ideal solutions for low latency requirements, ensuring power loss protection and data integrity. When it comes to storage solutions, SMART’s DuraFlash embedded and removable drives are designed for compute intensive, high throughput and high capacity storage applications.
With the development of IoT technology, tons of data and transmitted and processed between devices to provide instant response to users on the site. Under such scenario, retail as well as gaming applications typically require memory with compact form factors, reduced voltage demands, high performance and high reliability. SMART’s DuraFlash embedded and removable memory products provide a wide variety of solutions for POS and gaming applications.
Defense and aerospace applications require the utmost in reliable, robust storage, and they must be able to withstand punishing conditions. Factors including extreme changes in temperature gradient, vibration, altitude and humidity all need to be considered when designing in memory for these types of mission-critical, high-reliability applications. Applications requiring higher levels of security and sanitization should consider the SMART RUGGED’s line of 2.5” SSDs specifically designed for defense and aerospace.
