Dependable and secure UEFI BIOS embedded firmware
Phoenix SecureCore Technology (Phoenix SCT) 3.0, the latest UEFI BIOS firmware from Phoenix Technologies, uses a graphical user interface to simplify once obscure BIOS settings. It uses an integrated development environment to accelerate firmware development, debugging, and customization in order to enhance boot performance while providing peripheral and system security support. Phoenix SCT 3.0 is playing a significant pioneering and innovative role in the next generation of BIOS. It is the first firmware in the industry to provide native EDK II support, backward compatibility support for EDK 1117, and cross-border applications for tablet PCs, ultrabooks, embedded systems, and servers.

New industrial control technologies and applications for flash memory in 2013
The quality and durability of successive generations of flash memories have tended to drop. Industrial customers are often only willing to use costly SLC memory, which limits SSD capacities for industrial control applications. The flash SSD/DOM industry has incorporated iSLC memory technology which is 10 times more durable than MLC, as well as key technologies that can maintain and monitor program/erase (P/E) wear leveling. This allows MLC to be integrated into lightweight industrial control applications, while iSLC memory will become the new darling of industrial control applications.
