Presentation:  Automotive Flash Memory Growth and the Production Bottleneck:
Accelerating the transition from eMMC to 3D UFS in manufacturing for the connected car

By:  Anthony Ambrose
President & CEO Data I/O Corporation


Automotive electronics systems including powerful in-vehicle infotainment systems (IVI), detailed navigation maps and complex advanced driver assist systems for the connected cars are driving demand for high density Flash memory.Researchers estimate cars will require up to 2TB of data by 2022.To meet these demands semiconductor vendors are introducing new automotive grade flash technology with more storage (higher density) in a smaller size.

Designing the next generation of cars with the latest Flash technology is one challenge.Manufacturing and programming these systems without creating a bottleneck in production is another. Data for these applications are primarily programmed into the systems during manufacturing can have significant impacts on the production processes.

It is critical for automotive electronics manufacturers to understand the latest advancements in Flash memory and the impact on their manufacturing process.This session examines the transition from eMMC to 3D UFS (Universal Flash Memory) and the impact of this technology change and rapid content growth on the manufacturing processes.This session will also identify strategies and best practices automotive electronics manufacturers can integrate into their manufacturing processes today to manage large file sizes and ensure they have a highly flexible and cost-effective supply chain.
