If you've never heard or used a Click board, now is a great time to check them out. Click Boards from MikroElektronica   MikroElektronika invented the Click boards and the mikroBUS standard to which they fit. MikroElektronika makes the claim, "The Biggest Add-on Collection in the World," and I think they are correct. As of today, November 30th 2020, I can see 974 items on their https://www.mikroe.com/click  landing page, including Sensors, Displays, Wireless transceivers, Motor contr ...
Avnet's System-on-Module (SOM) and Single Board Computer (SBC) products are meant to be designed into end products. This includes products like UltraZed, Ultra96-V2 , PicoZed ,Azure Sphere Module, MaaXBoard, and SmartEdge Industrial IoT Gateway. Using a SOM, SBC, module, or Gateway can save an enormous amount of risk and time when developing a new product since much of the critical infrastructure (like memory subsystem and power) are already designed and tested on the SOM/SBC. However, there are ...
In Storage Insights #4, we highlighted the primary components of SSD drives, with an emphasis on the Flash Controller. In Storage Insights #5 we will dive deeper into the primary components of Embedded Multimedia Cards (eMMC).   eMMC General Description Designed for a wide range of applications in consumer electronics, mobile phones, handheld computers, navigational systems and other industrial uses, routers, eMMC is an embedded non-volatile memory system, comprised of both flash memory and ...
Optimizing the Life of Storage Devices In our first Storage Insights post, we discussed that all SD cards are not equivalent, and how different NAND flash and card technologies can be applied to diverse applications for the same storage form factor.  In this edition, we will examine how the device is written to – in terms of both the controller technology and the application workload – can have a significant impact on the resulting life of the drive.   Extending the Life o ...
