Micron Technology has launched the UFS 2.1 managed NAND products for automotive applications, to enhance driver experience in connected vehicles.
The products will be offered in different capacity variations ranging from 32 GB to 256 GB.
Micron says that the new suite of products will enable a quick system start-up and provide higher data bandwidth for in-vehicle performance systems.
The company says its vehicle-focused semiconductor technology currently helps mitigate human driving errors like gesture control interfaces that can detect distracted drivers. Its artificial intelligence (AI) can also assists cars to detect the presence of objects and humans on the road and alert the driver.
The company already provides automotive-grade low-power DDR memories to automotive companies. Micron says that it believes that this will enable overall system bandwidths of up to 100 gigabytes per second.
However, the company estimates that bandwidths of 300 GB/s will be required to power Level 5 autonomous vehicles, making it all the more important to make advancements in its already powerful memory solutions.
