Western Digital iNand IX EM132

iNand IX EM132 Industrial Embedded Flash Device - e.MMC flash storage solution for industrial applications

Western Digital iNAND EM132 IX eMMC - capacity of 256 GB - front and back side

The Industrial iNAND IX EM132 Embedded Flash Drive (EFD) is Western Digital’s most advanced e.MMC flash storage solution for industrial applications, with high reliability and endurance across a wide range of operational requirements.

Designed and tested to withstand demanding environmental conditions, this industrial- grade flash device features advanced flash memory management firmware to provide enhanced power immunity, ECC, wear leveling, and bad block management. Data intensive applications can rely on the EM132 to capture every critical moment, log each event, and    to ensure quality-of-service to end-users.

The Smart Partitioning feature in the iNAND IX EM132 EFD Industrial flash devices allows Boot partitions, RPMB, multiple General-Purpose Partitions, User Data Area and Enhanced User Data Area, providing OEMs the flexibility to choose different attributes on a single device depending on storage requirements.

In addition, the optimized 3D NAND memory offers significant advantages over that of standard X2 MLC memory in the previous eMMC generation.
