The chip supports a wide temperature range of -40 to +105°C, meets AEC-Q100 Grade 2 requirements and offers the extended reliability required by various automotive applications. The 512GB device joins the company’s existing lineup of Automotive UFS, including capacities of 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

The 512GB Automotive UFS memory integrates the company’s BiCS FLASH 3D flash memory and a controller into a single package. Specific functions well-suited to the requirements of automotive applications include Refresh, Thermal Control and Extended Diagnosis. The Refresh function can be used to refresh data stored in UFS and helps extend the data’s lifespan. The Thermal Control function protects the device from overheating in the high-temperature circumstances that can occur in automotive applications. Lastly, the Extended Diagnosis function helps the host processor easily understand the device’s status.
