The industry is rapidly transforming with technology driving innovation, automotive standards shaping requirements, and consumer preferences changing demands. Since the car on the road is now its own data center, the need for data storage has grown exponentially — and so has the role of NAND flash to support mission-critical functions in automotive applications and entertainment features.
For future autonomous driving, the demand for fast, high-capacity storage propels the development of embedded products along with the requirement for a higher-end transmission system and a larger storage unit.
As electronic content becomes a larger and larger part of the vehicle, storage technologies employing NAND flash must be able to ensure optimized performance, reliability, and longevity. Silicon Motion provides dependable high-performance automotive-grade storage solutions, including controllers and single-chip solutions for in-vehicle infotainment, navigation, ADAS, DVR, and autonomous driving applications.
