Western Digital this week has introduced its first family of embedded eMMC storage devices for industrial and IoT applications. Based on the company's 64-layer BiCS3 3D TLC NAND memory, the new iNAND IX EM132 drives offer up to 310 MB/s read speeds as well as enhanced endurance and reliability by supporting various features designed specifically for embedded, commercial, industrial, and similar environments. Western Digital’s iNAND IX EM132 embedded flash drives are based around an in-house controller that supports an eMMC 5.1 HS400 interface along with an advanced ECC, wear leveling, bad block management, and RPMB (replay protect memory block). The eMMC drives also support smart partitioning (multiple partitions with different features and purposes to provide device makers some additional flexibility), auto/manual data refresh (automatically rewrites...
