  • Designing NVMe SSD for Industrial Applications

    SSD performance is one of the biggest considerations when designing industrial applications. SSD technology is still evolving from PATA to SATA and the speed of its interface continues to increase. The PCIe interface appeared in the market almost at the same time as SATA 3.0 Gbps (Gen. 2) became popular.

  • WISE-PaaS Open APIs and Standardized Protocols at Various IoT System Levels

    WISE-PaaS Introduction Whitepaper. The success of IoT is stepping away from vertically-oriented, closed systems towards open systems, based on open APIs and standardized protocols at various system levels. By Louis Lu, Embedded-IoT Architect
  • Accelerating Wireless Sensor Network Development with the Open Standard Sensor Node M2.COM

    The IoT era is fundamentally altering the operations and evolution of traditional industries as well as emerging businesses. Several IoT applications now available harness sensors, gateways, networking and cloud infrastructure to enable new avenues of value and efficiency for customers. Whether deploying basic IoT devices like sensors or a host of next-generation IoT products and services, standard network infrastructures need to be altered to enable important IoT characteristics like wireless connectivity, remote management, and monitoring. In addition, multiple platforms and technologies need to be integrated to fully bring the benefits of IoT to market.
    To facilitate a wide variety of integration possibilities without compromising on lead time requirements, Advantech along with partners TI, ARM, Bosch Sensortec and Sensirion have collaborated to bring a new open standard - M2.COM to the market.   M2.COM is based on M.2 form factor architecture and provides a modular approach to sensor node design.  In this paper, we call out the core requirements associated with sensor node design for IoT and examine how the M2.COM design standard fulfils these requirements.
  • RTX: The Right Form Factor for Your Rugged Applications

    The presence of high-end electronic equipment is increasing in many applications including transportation, industrial, agricultural and power equipment.   These applications are expected to operate reliably for several years and are often subject to harsh environments like vibration, dust, and extreme weather conditions.   They need special design considerations and use of boards and components qualified to work reliably in harsh conditions.   The figure below summarizes the stresses that must be endured in rugged applications.
  • Complete Power Failure Protection for SQFlash

    Advantech SQFlash features complete power failure protection in all product SKUs, proper power failure protection mechanisms are implemented in different product series. This complete scheme combines four different functions – Power Failure Saver, Power Drop Catcher, Flush Manager, and Voltage Stabilizer.

  • New Era for Computer-on-Module:Intel® Xeon® D-1500 COM Express Module

    Advantech SOM-5991, designed on the Intel® Xeon® Processor D-1500 family, is the world’s first COM Express powered by a server-grade processor that provides high bandwidth interfaces for data transmission-reception, all within a basic form-factor of 125 x 95 mm with a Type 6 compliant pin-out. Nevertheless, since most user scenarios adopt a thin chassis or blade/slot architectures, the SOM-5991 is designed with extra, dedicated CPU heatsink screw holes that allow for a compact and flexible thermal solution. With this new product, the user can easily design a scalable, high performance system with all computer-on-module advantages that is not restricted to ATCA/CPCI slot architectures.
  • Jumpstart IoT Innovation with Pre-integrated Gateway Starter Kit

    2016 is going to be a booming year for the IoT industry. Most company executives and managers are targeting IoT as their key strategy to help their future business growth. This could be for new market development, or it could be for improving production efficiency. Whatever the purpose, a key challenge is to close the “technical gap” between engineers and managers. Facility managers have expert knowledge of their equipment but suffer from IT departments’ reluctance to “open up” their data gathered from equipment. IT departments have different challenges and ideas about “industrial automation”, and there are no universal standards like in the regular IT world.
  • Advantech’s Powerful Ultra-Small 2.5" MI/O-Ultra Pico-ITX Single-Board Computers Ensure Easy Assembly and Convenient Integration

    With the advent of Internet of Things (IoT) applications for industries, a greater number of embedded product applications for industrial control, medical, POS/KIOSK, home security, and transportation are required. Advantech’s 2.5" MI/O-Ultra (Pico-ITX) single-board computers (SBCs) are ideal for use in super slim, cableless, and rugged designs aimed at satisfying demands for rich I/O, compact size (for slim chassis applications), and intelligent software support.
  • Advanced Thermal Solution Dynamic Heat Conduction System (DHCS) Introduction

    Advantech has developed a highly efficient thermal solution– the Dynamic Heat Conduction System (DHCS). The advanced DHCS technology effectively improves heat transfer performance, which solves the heat dissipation problem that develops when a high performance CPU generates massive heat. With the help of the Dynamic Heat Conduction System, devices and systems can run smoothly and the chances of a breakdown or malfunction can be reduced.
  • Design Benefits of the MI/O Extension Solution

    System integration is not an easy task, making system integration easier is the goal of most clients.

  • Industrial Storage Modules- SQFlash Fragment Writing Technology

    A “block” is a basic process unit in any flash IC; every program or erase command in a flash drive is normally executed at the block level. The most essential task for a NAND flash controller, called “block management”, is to rearrange user data into proper blocks and generate a block address table to convert low-level block information into readable data for the OS level. Therefore, the endurance and performance of a NAND flash module relies heavily on the block management approach conducted by the NAND flash controller.
  • Wear Leveling Implementation on SQFlash

    NAND is similar to a hard-disk drive. It is sector-based (page-based), and fitted for storing sequential data such as picture files. The host system performs its data transfer (reads and writes) to LBA (logical block address) only. For example, the FAT information would also be stored from LBA X to LBA Y. The assigned allocation area for the FAT does not move in LBA, whereas the actual FAT table for the PBA (Physical Block Address) moves randomly from time to time. The PBA is the physical address of the NAND Flash. A mapping table is also required for the controller to remap the LBA to the PBA of the NAND Flash.
  • Ultra MLC Technology Introduction

    Flash memory is a non-volatile storage element that can be electrically programmed/re-programmed and erased. As technology continuously advances, the demands for greater density and better performance with flash memory become large as well.
