A Low-Cost Embedded Storage Option

Our eUSBs are a lot smaller, more durable, and easier to design in than HDDs. They combine flexibility, performance, and fast time-to-market, and they cost less than traditional HDDs. With those features, eUSBs are a great example of a better, faster, and less expensive NAND solution that offers distinct competitive advantages for your embedded designs.

And with no moving parts, the reliability of our RealSSD eUSBs far surpass many of the best-in-class, rugged HDDs. They can sustain 500G shocks and operate within extended and industrial temperature ranges.

  • Costs less to implement than even the least expensive HDDs.
  • Smaller than a 1.8-inch HDD, an embedded USB lets you pack more features into less space.
  • Withstands extreme shock and vibrations and has a wider operating temperature range than competing technologies, ensuring higher reliability in demanding environments.
  • Draws less than 330mW of power when actively reading or writing data.
  • Enables faster boot-up (access time) than many HDDs, and the USB interface is already defined in most boot sequencers.

Embedded USB FAQs (5)

Is it possible for me to secure the data on Micron’s eUSB product?

No, Micron’s RealSSD eUSB does not support any security features.

Does Micron provide a way for me to retrieve Flash ID information to determine the useful life remaining on the device?
Yes, there is a tech note available upon request to Micron Sales and Support. This document provides commands that enable the host controller to retrieve Flash ID information with regards to bad block count, spare block count, erase count, and FlashIDBuf data. This data can be used to help determine the useful life of the eUSB.
Can I use the eUSB as a boot device?
Yes, Micron’s eUSB can be used as the Operating System boot and main storage device. The application’s BIOS must support this feature. This isn’t a concern for most systems that have been manufactured in the last five years and support USB 2.0. In either the main storage or boot mode, the eUSB is recognized as a fixed hard drive in the system.
Does Micron offer the eUSB with a 3.3V option?

Yes. Please check the part catalog for Micron’s offering.

How does the eUSB attach to my system board?
The eUSB device has a 10-pin (2x5) USB female connector compatible with the industry standard 10-pin connector found on most motherboards today. A mounting hole is also provided on the PCB to provide for a stable connection to the system board. This mounting hole pad connects to internal ground. There are also 3 additional holes in the PC board which are used for de-paneling the boards after assembly. These can also be used if needed for additional mounting.

Q&A: Three Keys to Choosing the Right Server Flash

June 20, 2014 by Corporate Communication

If your data center applications are struggling to keep pace with user demand, you may be looking to SSDs to close the gap.  While SSDs will generally offer a host of performance advantages over hard disk drives (‘HDDs’), not all SSDs are the same, and neither is the NAND flash inside them. I recently did a webinar with Storage Switzerland’s Lead Analyst George Crump during which we discussed this very topic – how do we choose the ‘right’ solid state stor...Read More
