Micron Technology, Inc. introduced the industry’s first 1TB automotive and industrial grade PCIe NVMe solid state drive (SSD) in BGA and 22x30mm M.2 form factors. Based on 64-layer triple-level cell (TLC) 3D NAND technology, the new Micron 2100 series of NVMe SSDs is designed for next-generation autonomous cars and the industrial internet of things (IIoT).
As data requirements in connected cars with advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) and in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) increase, vehicles are transforming into data centers on wheels, requiring faster, reliable and cost-effective storage. In addition, the proliferation of edge computing and use of artificial intelligence (AI) in IIoT applications is driving a similar need for faster storage that is not supported by legacy interfaces like SATA and e.MMC.
- Up to 2000 MB/s reads and 1100 MB/s writes, >2X faster reads and >1.5X faster writes than UFS 2.1 and SATA 3 interfaces1
- Available in 64GB to 1TB densities2 and 16x20mm BGA and 22x30mm M.2 form factors
- Optimized for reduced power consumption with lower estimated energy usage vs. UFS 2.13
- -40°C to 105°C and -40°C to 95°C Tcase
- PCIe x4 Gen3, NVMe 1.3 with direct boot option, bypassing the need for another storage device for boot; NVMe shows >25% and >15% improvement in system write and read speeds, respectively, over SCSI software storage stack used in UFS4
- AEC-Q100, IATF 16949-compliant
- End-to-end data path protection, SLC partitioning support for high endurance, TCG Opal with self-encryption capability
- Based on industry-leading 64-layer TLC NAND with CMOS under array technology
