Western Digital Corp introduced iNAND 7250A embedded flash drive (EFD). Leveraging enhanced flash storage technology for superior reliability, the new SanDisk-branded storage device is designed to support data demands of the latest “advanced driver-assistance systems” (ADAS), cutting-edge infotainment and safety systems, and other connected technologies in vehicles.
It is being claimed that it delivers dependable performance even in extreme conditions in and around the vehicle, including ambient temperatures down to -40oC and up to 105oC. This makes the robust, new EFD ideal for a wide range of connected automotive systems and environments.
The iNAND 7250A is designed to work with a variety of automotive systems in the vehicle that generate, receive and process data, from increasingly complex infotainment and navigation systems, to diagnostic systems continuously processing analytics, to constantly streaming vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure systems. The new iNAND 7250A also comes with the company’s suite of automotive “smart” features, which include enhanced power failure protection, a comprehensive memory health status monitor, advanced diagnostic tools and more.
