Thursday 20 September 2012

Advantech, a leading embedded platform and services provider, today showcased the world's first industrial grade SATAIII series products at the Advantech Design-in Forum in Shanghai. Working closely with its long-term strategic partners, Advantech now offers an industry-leading storage solution which strengthens the security function and durability of the latest high-security Industrial SQFlash series product.

Dedicated Storage Alliance for Industrial Use

Storage is one of the crucial parts of an integrated system and directly relates to overall stability and performance. Specifically, many industrial solutions are made for working in rugged environments such as factory automation, transportation, and military fields. The whole system should be able to work under high temperature, high humidity, and even unstable power conditions. The storage needs to be strong enough to work stably in such environments. "With IPC know-how accumulated by Advantech for decades, we are pleased to partner with Phison and a first-tier Flash IC designer to deliver highly reliable Flash modules with advanced security features for a total storage solution. It also helps our customers to minimize their development effort and shorten time-to-market," said Miller Chang, VP of Advantech.

"Based on years of Controller IC design experience, Phison provides a flexible yet reliable framework for Flash modules. Working closely with Advantech and leading Flash IC designer, we are excited to see how the alignment combines resources from back end research & development all the way to front end marketing to provide the highest grade industrial storage solutions on the market," said Steven Wang, Greater China GM of Phison.
