Industrial Applications

Applications such as industrial automation, medical monitoring equipment, robots, wearables, smart speakers, surveillance cameras and much more can all benefit from flash memory with high reliability, durability, and the ability to maintain and protect code and data integrity. Flash memory is also routinely deployed in systems and devices that experience extreme environmental conditions, such as digital signage, drones, outside IoT devices, and even space vehicles and satellites.

The Evolution of Flash Memory in Industrial Applications

Since the invention of NAND flash memory in 1987, KIOXIA* has continued to provide innovative technologies that have changed the way we live, work, and play. Today, flash memory is a driving force behind applications like Industrial IoT (or Industry 4.0) and many other emerging “smart” applications. These applications are fundamentally changing the way factories operate and workplaces function— making them safer and more efficient.  In fact, flash memory will play a critical role in just about anything that begins with “smart” — smart metering, smart homes, smart logistics, smart farms, and more.

  • The memory business of Toshiba Corporation was spun off from Toshiba Corporation and named as Toshiba Memory Corporation in April 2017, and Toshiba Memory Corporation has changed its name to KIOXIA Corporation since October 2019.

Delivering Proven Endurance and Reliability for Industrial Applications

KIOXIA’s portfolio of industrial flash memory solutions provides high endurance and reliability, wide temperature support, a range of densities and package options, and extended product lifecycle support.  These solutions also offer advanced memory management functions, such as  auto/manual read refresh, error correction code (ECC), and wear-leveling to help ensure reliable operations in critical write-intensive applications and demanding industrial environments. From low-density code storage to higher-density data storage, KIOXIA offers proven, industry-standard solutions for a myriad of industrial applications.

KIOXIA’s Memory Solutions for Industrial Applications

Noted for its high performance, reliability, compact form factors, low power consumption, and ability to work over an extended temperature range, single-level cell (SLC) NAND is a cornerstone flash memory technology for industrial and consumer applications. KIOXIA’s SLC offerings include standard SLC NAND, Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI), an alternative to SPI NOR flash, and BENAND™, standard SLC NAND with on-board ECC.

KIOXIA’s UFS (Universal Flash Storage) and e-MMC are JEDEC-compatible memory devices that integrate a controller, error correction code (ECC) and other control functions in a single package offering easy integration into a variety of industrial and consumer applications.

Filling the performance gap between DRAM and NAND flash memory, KIOXIA’s XL-FLASH provides a high-performance, low-latency SCM solution to support increasingly demanding data-driven applications such as real-time analytics, transactional databases, and machine learning.
