Apacer to unveil ruggedized SSD technology

first_imgAfter 20 years in the industry, the company remains dedicated to showcase its industrial products and technologies at embedded world including top-range 3D NAND SSD, industrial DRAM, and TCG Opal 2.0 solutions.With the advent of Industry 4.0, Apacer expects to unveil all-new 3D NAND flash storage solutions to fulfill the macro demand in cloud computing, automated industrial applications, and big data analysis. Apacer’s 3D NAND flash storage solutions adopt 64-Layer BiCS3 flash chips, which promise to operate at excellent stability, capacity and access speeds to meet industrial needs. Products are available for 2.5-inch, M.2, PCIe, mSATA, MO-297, SATA modules, uSSD, and CFast. Apacer anticipates fully demonstrating the high-performance, high-speed, and high-stability features of its products, thereby satisfying customer requirements.The technologies of Apacer’s military-grade ruggedized SSDs are as follows: (1) Thermal Throttling: This is for monitoring the temperature of the SSD. When continuously executing intensive reading and writing, the temperature of the SSD rises, which could lead to or increase the risk of device malfunction or damage. To prevent the system from overheating and sustaining damage, Apacer’s SSDs are equipped with Thermal Throttling technology for temperature control, reducing operating speeds during high temperature to prevent hardware damage. (2) Underfill: This strengthens the soldering points of BGA packages, enhances anti-vibration properties, and reduces damage from thermal stress. It not only effectively reinforces anti-vibration and anti-thermal impact properties but also prolongs product life. (3) Conformal coating/ IP57 nano-coating: This provides anti-pollution and water-proof functions.Amidst the continuous advancement in the storage technologies of solid state drives (SSDs), choosing products that can store an immense amount of data securely has become the priority of many companies. Apacer offers a variety of products with the TCG Opal 2.0 technology. TCG Opal 2.0 SSDs handle the encryption of information within the device without the need for a host, enabling fast encryption and minimizing the risk of data leakage without affecting system performance. Apacer’s TCG Opal 2.0 products come in a variety of form factors, including 2.5″, M.2, mSATA, and MO-297. Apacer developed and patented a unique industrial-grade anti-sulfuration DRAM module that combines anti-sulfuration technology and wide temperature support, ensuring stable operations in highly sulfuric or stringent/extreme climate conditions. Modules are designed for use in industrial control systems, automobile electronics, medical devices, national defense equipment, network and communication devices, and mining control systems located in highly contaminated environments, providing multi-layered protection solutions.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous ADLINK brings ‘AI at the Edge’ with NVIDIA technologyNext The rise of edge computinglast_img read more

Cruise Companies Cancel Calls in South Korea

first_imgzoom Amid the recent developments in South Korea, cruise giant Royal Caribbean has decided to cancel calls at the country’s ports on its China-based voyages, the company said in an alert on its Chinese site.The calls are related to the itineraries of the Quantum of the Seas, Mariner of the Seas and Ovation of the Seas up to June, 2017 with calls in Busan, Jeju and Seoul, Korea replaced by those in Japan.In addition, Carnival’s Costa Cruises is cited by Reuters as saying that it would “remove calls to South Korean ports for our upcoming cruises home ported out of China, replacing them with cruising at sea or calls to destinations in Japan.”  The move was triggered by South Korea’s deployment of Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) missile system in cooperation with the United States, which Beijing believes is targeted against China, and not as a means of keeping nuclear threats from North Korea at bay.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Hoegh LNG Pulls the Plug on FSRU Charter Deal with GEI

first_imgzoom Owner and operator of floating LNG import terminals Höegh LNG Holdings has terminated the 20-year charter contract for a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) with Global Energy Infrastructure Limited (GEI).The FSRU charter agreement signed on December 15, 2016 was intended for the FSRU #9 which is currently taking shape at Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) shipyard in South Korea.Under the terms of the deal, the FSRU was intended for the GEI’s LNG import project in Port Qasim near Karachi, Pakistan.The decision follows Höegh LNG’s announcement in its third quarter 2017 financial report that it was considering its options under the contract with GEI due to the withdrawal of the LNG sellers from the infrastructure consortium, and the delays to the original start-up date for the GEI project.As explained by Höegh LNG, the contract was conditional on GEI putting in place the associated infrastructure required to connect the FSRU to the domestic pipeline grid.As part of this process, a consortium consisting of Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil, Total, Mitsubishi and Höegh LNG was formed with the intention to build, finance and operate the infrastructure based on an agreement with GEI.The consortium has spent considerable time and resources on finding its final form and structure, however by mid-November it has been concluded that no agreement with GEI could be found and the consortium has consequently been dissolved, Höegh LNG pointed out.“Höegh LNG is involved in several ongoing processes for alternative employment for FSRU #9, which was originally intended for the GEI project, and the company remains optimistic that firm FSRU employment will be in place before delivery end 2018,” the company said.Scheduled for delivery in the fourth quarter of 2018, the FSRU will have a storage capacity of 170,000 cubic meters and a max regasification capacity of 750 MMscf/day.With a gross tonnage of 103,800 tons, the newbuilding will feature a length of 294 meters and a width of 46 meters.last_img read more
