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...

The Striking Contrast Between IoT and IIoT SSDs

A shift is underway in data storage for Industrial IoT (IIoT) designs—away from traditional approaches, and toward full, integrated solutions dedicated to storing, computing, controlling, connecting, and protecting critical information. These solutions address needs...

CompactFlash Lives!

We all remember those CompactFlash (CF) cards that came with our digital cameras.  Well, in the industrial-embedded world, CF storage is a whole different animal.  Rugged, industrial-grade CF is still a perfect format for many industrial-embedded applications, across...

Virtium Flies Higher with Compliance to Aerospace Standards

The aerospace industry continues to expand dramatically and has become an increasingly significant part of Virtium’s business.  Our customers in aerospace are understandably demanding and exacting in their needs for powerful, secure and reliable solid-state storage...

Our New DDR4 32GB…

It goes without saying that embedded-system designers want the full complement of memory features in the systems they develop: maximum capacity, reliability, durability, small footprint, and cost-effectiveness. It can be a balancing act, however; sometimes one or more...
