NXP iMX 8M Plus To Use Kingston eMMC Memory!

Kingston just announced that their eMMC memory has been selected to be used in the NXP iMX 8M Plus reference board!


NXP iMX 8M Plus To Use Kingston eMMC Memory!

On 8 April 2021, Kingston Technology announced that their eMMC embedded memory will be featured in NXP iMX 8M Plus evaluation kits.

Although Kingston did not reveal which eMMC part was selected, the picture they released appears to show the EMMC08G-MB29, which boasts these key features :

  • 8 GB capacity
  • 3D TLC in pMLC NAND memory
  • eMMC 5.1 standard
  • 11.5 x 13 x 0.8 mm package size

They will be used as storage in the NXP iMX 8M Plus reference boards, which will be used for development and engineering verification.


NXP iMX 8M Plus : What Is It?

The NXP iMX 8M Plus is an application processor – a System-On-a-Chip (SoC) designed for infrastructure solutions like smart home, intelligent city and industrial IoT devices.

  • two or four ARM Cortex-A53 processors (up to 1.8 GHz)
  • a neural processing unit (NPU) operating at up to 2.3 TOPS
  • ARM Cortex-M7 controller (up to 800 MHz)
  • 32-bit DDR4 and LPDDR4 interface (up to 4.0 GT/s)
  • dual image signal processors (ISP) : up to 12 MP, up to 375 MPixels per second
  • two MIPI CSI camera interfaces
  • two Gigabit Ethernet LAN interfaces
  • two USB 3.0 / 2.0 with Type C PHY
  • PCI Express Gen 3 support
  • 14 nm FinFET process

ADATA SC660H and SV620H External SSDs Updated

Taipei, 8 December 2016ADATA Technology today launched the updated SC660H and SV620H external SSDs.

Based on previous designs, the new models are part of the ADATA move to 3D NAND Flash in all new SSDs and in refreshes of existing models. The SC660H and SV620H feature 3D TLC NAND instead of traditional 2D NAND to provide increased reliability, durability, and efficiency.

The drives connect to host PCs via USB 3.1 Gen 1, and are presented in two distinct enclosure styles. Thanks to 3D NAND, the updated SSDs are available in 256GB and 512GB as opposed to 240GB and 480GB in the original SC660/SV620. Performance is 440MB/s read and 430MB/s write in both models.

ADATA SC660H : ultra-thin and tough elegance

The SC660H measures just 9.6mm tall. Its slim enclosure uses electroplated and textured titanium, ensuring a high degree of resistance against shocks, scratches, paint chipping, and fingerprints. The SC660H weighs a mere 73g, a fraction of the bulk of an external mechanical hard drive.


ADATA SV620H : elevating external SSD design

Also light and slender, the SV620H likewise employs a sandblasted titanium enclosure that makes it shock and scratch resistant. Its flat surfaces are raised 0.75mm, so that even when moved across a desk or other area the risk of unsightly scratches is minimized. The SV620H weighs 76g, and like its SC660H sibling has a cool blue activity LED.

Bigger capacity in the same space plus added reliability

The 3D TLC NAND used on the two external SSDs is more reliable than 2D NAND and enables “packing” more storage into identical product chassis. At 256GB and 512GB, the SC660H and SV620H offer more space than their predecessors without consuming extra power. They are extremely efficient and ideal for notebook PCs thanks to placing very little stress on batteries.

Like all SSDs, they run totally silent and cool. With their 3D NAND, the SC660H and SV620H simply offer a better value than 2D NAND-based external SSDs, representing another step in ADATA embracing new technology to benefit consumers worldwide.
