ATP Electronics, the global leader in specialized storage and memory solutions, introduces its new 3D triple level cell (TLC) S750/S650 Series SD and microSD memory cards built for the rigors of non-stop video recording. They meet the high endurance, low latency, and built-to-last data storage requirements of dashcams and digital video recorders (DVRs), as well as surveillance systems, autonomous vehicles, and other write-intensive applications.

High Endurance Over 109K Hours1of Recording Time in Native TLC

Video evidence can prove critical in many scenarios; hence, it is very important for SD/microSD cards to record non-stop without compromising image quality and integrity. The S650 Series can record Full HD videos continuously up to 109,401 hours — far longer than similar cards marketed as “high endurance.” The S650 Series is based on 5K program/erase (P/E) cycles, which translate to 1.6X higher endurance than typical memory cards with 3K P/E cycles. The S750 Series, configured as pseudo single-level cell (pSLC) is based on 60K P/E cycles, while typical pSLC memory cards are rated for around 20K to 30K P/E cycles.

The following graph2 shows the endurance simulation result of ATP S650 128 GB microSD compared with other high-endurance branded cards of the same capacity, in full HD mode.

Notes:
Tested using 128 GB ATP S650 TLC card based on 13 Mbps (lowest bitrate of HD recording) in best-case/ideal scenario, with no other influencing factors.

Low Latency: Ready to Record in <1 Second, Writes 50% Faster

After power on, drive recorders may have to wait a few seconds to be ready for recording. The time between the first read command and the first write command from host is the “response time.” ATP S650 and S750 Series cards take less than 1 second response time while normal cards may take 7 to 12 seconds based on real tests on a DVR at room temperature. While recording 16 MB data sequentially, ATP S650 cards take less than 0.1 second, saving 50% of writing time compared with consumer-rated cards and enabling high-speed backup without data loss.

Own HW/FW Design Features Offer Precise Reliability

As a true manufacturer with its own hardware/firmware capability, ATP can adjust to a variety of usages to fulfill customers’ specific application requirements and conditions. Based on customers’ applications, ATP does its best to meet the requirements by unique FW and HW design.

  • Auto-Read Calibration (ARC). Over time and with constant use, NAND flash memory cells degrade, causing voltage shifts that increase bit error rates (BER). When the normal Read Retry function is not enough to recover the errors, a more precise “Auto Read Calibration” (ARC) is applied to assure data integrity at extreme temperature or degraded NAND cells.
  • ATP Methodology for Advanced Card Analysis. ATP memory cards are IP67/IP57-certified and manufactured using System-in-Package (SiP) wafer/die process, making it difficult to do component analysis compared to SMT (surface- mount technology) process. ATP’s uniquely designed substrate and debug tool make this mission “possible.”
  1. ATP-Developed Hardware Design – Substrate with reserved testing pin is available for future component analysis.
  2. Solder Mask Removal by Laser – Precise and efficient method to remove solder mask so as to reach the reserved testing pins on the substrate.
  3. ATP’s Own Customized Debug Tool – This is connected to the HW reserved testing pin and then linked to the SW analysis system.

ASUS Tinker Board – Single Board Computer (SBC) in an ultra-small form factor

ASUS Tinker Board SBC

Tinker Board is a Single Board Computer (SBC) in an ultra-small form factor that offers class-leading performance while leveraging outstanding mechanical compatibility. The Tinker Board offers creators and developers a reliable and extremely capable platform for building and tinkering their ideas into reality.

Leading Performance

With its powerful and modern quad-core ARM-based processor — the Rockchip RK3288 — Tinker Board offers significantly improved performance versus other popular SBC boards. To provide the flexibility needed for different builds and projects, Tinker Board features 2GB of LPDDR3 dual-channel memory. Tinker Board is also equipped with an SD 3.0 interface that offers significantly faster read and write speeds to expandable microSD cards used for the OS, applications and file storage.

Robust GPU Performance & Functionality

Featuring a powerful and energy efficient design, the Tinker board supports the next generation of graphics and GPU Compute API. Powered by the ARM-based Mali T764 GPU, its GPU enables a wide range of uses, including high-quality media playback, gaming, computer vision, gesture recognition, image processing and stabilization, photography, and much more. Multimedia enthusiasts will appreciate the H.264 video and audio encoders and H.265 compatibility, including HD and UHD* video.

HD Audio Quality

This is an improvement in key areas that many SBC cards lack, Tinker is equipped with an HD codec that supports up to 192kHz/24-bit audio. The audio jack can support both audio and microphone output, without an extension module.

Multiple IoT Connectivity Options

The Tinker Board features standard connectivity options, including a 40-pin GPIO interface that allows connection to a range of inputs from buttons, switches, sensors, LEDs, and more. Tinker Board is equipped with a DSI MIPI connection for displays and touch panels. The secondary CSI MIPI connection is for connection to compatible cameras that enable computer vision, and much more.

Tinker Board also features Gbit LAN for Internet and network connectivity. A dedicated bus resource designed for the LAN port ensures consistent Ethernet performance. The integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth controller on the Tinker Board is protected with a metal cover to ensure minimal interference and better radio performance. An integrated IPEX antenna connector allows for easy antenna replacement or upgrades.

Tinker Board also features a full-size HDMI output that avoids the use of adapters. Plus, it includes four USB 2.0 or 3.2 ports for extensive peripheral and accessory connectivity.

Improved DIY design

Creators will appreciate the visibility and clarity of the GPIO connector enhancements as they are color segmented for quick and easy recognition.

The Tinker Board’s PCB, dimensions, and topology meet a standard that makes it compatible with a multitude of chassis and accessories. The built-in MIPI headers also have colored tabs.

Tinker Board includes a heat sink, which helps to better work under heavy load or in hot environment.

TinkerOS ‧ Supported OS ‧ Applications

A Debian-based distribution ensures a smooth and functional experience, right out of the box. Whether you’re browsing the web, watching videos, or writing scripts, TinkerOS is a great starting point for your next project or build.

Furthermore, TinkerOS has been carefully designed to be extremely lightweight and responsive. Running on top of Debian 10 is an LXDE desktop environment. This GUI is specifically optimized for SBC. It also features Plug & Play NTFS support that allows easy access to Windows-based flash drives and external hard drives. The included web browser has also been carefully selected and optimized. It is based on Chromium and enables speed and stability along with various extensions. The ASUS team has helped enable browser hardware acceleration, which enables better web and video playback, including HD resolutions on YouTube.

TinkerOS also includes a number of popular apps that allow for easy programming and development. These include IDLE/Python as well as Squeak/Scratch.

Alongside TinkerOS and their Debian Linux Tinker Board offering they also support the Android operating system . This enables completely different usage scenarios ranging from media playback, gaming, and much more.
