Pointe Claire, Quebec, April 15, 2015 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components offers the new eMMC™ Series of flash memory from Kingston Technology.

Kingston's A19nm e•MMC™ Flash memory follows the JEDEC e•MMC 5.0 standard and encloses the MLC NAND and e•MMC controller inside one JEDEC standard package to provide a standard interface to the host CPU. The e•MMC controller directs the Flash management, including ECC, wear-leveling, lOPS optimization and read sensing, significantly reducing the storage management burden on the host CPU.

A universal storage solution, Kingston A19 e•MMC is ideal for many electronic devices, including smartphones, tablet PCs, PDAs, eBook readers, MIDs, digital cameras and recorders, MP3, MP4 players, electronic learning products, digital TVs and set-top boxes. Beyond its use in consumer products, e•MMC is being rapidly adopted in embedded applications, such as many Computer on Module (COM) designs, because of its compact size, low-power consumption and many enhanced features.

Key benefits include simplification of system design and reduction in time to market. The standard interface makes fast-changing NAND technology invisible to the host and the host processor doesn't have to keep changing its software to accommodate every NAND technology change and variation. This helps to significantly reduce the design-in complexity and shorten the qualification cycle.

The e•MMC controller improves system performance by freeing up the host processor's valuable resources from NAND management so that the host processor can use its processing power on other tasks.

Compared to SLC NAND, e•MMC uses MLC NAND so it makes higher capacity storage in mobile devices much more affordable and enables today's mobile devices to meet increasing demands for storage.
