SODIMMs are So Right for Embedded-Industrial, IIoT Designs

SODIMMs are low-profile memory modules ideal for embedded-industrial and Industrial IoT designs. That’s due to their small form factor – roughly half the size of regular DIMM modules – yet still able to accommodate high capacities.  (Not long ago, we boosted the...

eUSB Still Hits the Mark

Taking a look at the priorities that embedded, Industrial IoT (IIoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) designers set for industrial-grade solid-state storage, we’re witnessing the emergence of designs that call for a balance of performance, temperature control and...

Zeroing Out Data Risk

It’s been said, ominously, that no stored data is entirely safe, regardless of the latest advancements in security technology. That’s a disheartening notion, especially when one considers the huge investments made in attaining, processing, storing and protecting...

One-Point-Eight Still Great!

1.8-inch SSDs Still Viable in the Industrial Embedded Space Storage device form factors come and go – remember hearing “Wow! How’d they do that?!” at the dawn of 3.5-inch drives? – but some have more staying power than others.  This holds particularly true in the...

3D-NAND: Landing Soon in the IIoT Space

There’s a major buzz these days surrounding 3D-NAND, which is heading toward the Industrial IIoT space. The buzz isn’t just because of its potential to dramatically boost SSD capacities, but also because it represents a breakthrough in storage. Imagine...

NVMe: Taking a Seat at the Industrial-Embedded Table

Not long ago, conventional thinking in the industrial-embedded-systems community was that non-volatile memory over PCI Express (NVMe) was overkill for industrial-embedded designs.  And it made sense then; storage-capacity demands didn’t justify NVMe performance at the...
