ADAS and Data Logging:
SSDs for automotive with IATF 16949:2016 certification

SSDs for automotive with IATF 16949:2016 certification

Data centers on wheels, these are our vehicles of tomorrow!

Many people are already dreaming of driving down the highway on autopilot.
When will that finally be possible?

Advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS) are central to the future of autonomous driving (AD). ADAS generate extreme amounts of data through their numerous sensors, LiDAR and cameras, leading to increasing demands for faster read/write speeds and larger storage capacities.

The vast amounts of data captured by numerous in-vehicle applications not only provide advanced and personalized infotainment, but also a safer driving experience. As vehicle architecture evolves and technology complexity increases, automotive OEMs and Tier 1s need high-performance, high-capacity, high-security and reliable storage.

Advanced Technologies for Advanced Vehicles.

EXASCEND SSDs with IATF 16949:2016 certification.

EXASCEND offers industry-leading storage solutions for the automotive industry. Ideal for tough applications such as Big Data, extreme temperatures, power failure, environmental impact and cyber threats. The portfolio supports many automotive applications such as advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) systems, black box recorders, vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications and more.

For example, providing fully customizable solid-state drives (SSDs) and memory cards helps automakers collect valuable data and accelerate the development of next-generation intelligent and autonomous vehicles.

Product lines for automotive applications: 


Data security

EXASCEND's self-encrypting drives (SEDs) are compatible with TCG Opal 2.0 and support AES-256 encryption, BitLocker and IEEE 1667 features, and boot authentication. Custom data sanitization and tamper-proof firmware encryption are available on demand to provide enhanced protection against security challenges in the networked age.

Thermal management and performance optimization

Proprietary Adaptive Thermal Control™ technology improves thermal, airflow and acoustic design complexity of the system.

Another exclusive firmware technology, SuperCruise™, can optimize write performance for stability over time.

High temperature ranges and durability

EXASCEND's products are designed to operate in extreme temperatures from -40 °C to 85 °C. Underfill and conformal coating technologies are also available to ensure resistance to vibration, shock and pressure and ultimately increase longevity.

High-capacity storage in a variety of form factors.

Up to 16 TB, our SSD portfolios include NVMe and SATA III interfaces in a variety of form factors:
PCIe-NVMe - E1.S, M.2, U.2
SATA-III - M.2, 2.5 inch, mSATA
Industrial CFast, Industrial CFexpress and e.MMC are also available for automotive applications and Systems.

Dual power loss protection (PLP)

In the event of a sudden power failure, the hardware and firmware power failure protection provides two levels of security against data integrity issues and guarantees that all data is safely stored before the storage device is shut down in a controlled manner.

Qualified and reliable

EXASCEND was officially certified to IATF 16949:2016 in 2022, confirming full compliance with stringent automotive requirements and international standards. The SSDs are fully manufactured in Taiwan and are also fully compliant with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA).
