Hagiwara Launches Intelligent One-Chip USB Flash Storage to Help Protect Software I/P in Embedded Applications

Hagiwara Launches Intelligent One-Chip USB Flash Storage to Help Protect Software I/P in Embedded Applications

IRVINE, California, March 30 /PRNewswire/ --

- The new one-chip flash storage 'bNAND', enhanced with UDRW Technology, is aimed for applications, such as gaming, requiring a higher level of security.

Hagiwara Sys-Com US Co., Ltd. (HSC-US), the industry leader in semiconductor application products for the cutting-edge consumer and industrial electronics -- introduces "bNAND", a bootable NAND flash with built-in flash controller and USB interface, measures at a mere 12mmx18mmx1.2mm. Enhanced with Hagiwara Sys-Com's patented UDRW Technology, the bNAND can be configured to various drive configurations: A CD-ROM partition (read-only access), a Flash partition (read/write access) and Hidden Memory Zone.

The CD-ROM partition can be used to store the OS and prevent accidental or malicious erasure, overwrites, modifications and infection by viruses.

The Hidden Memory Zone, which is invisible to the OS, can be used to store passwords, credentials and serial numbers. The Hidden Memory Zone is scalable and can also be used to store application components, backup files, or even the entire application.

Also each bNAND possesses a hidden UniqueID. This UniqueID can be embedded in the application, restricting operation to a specific bNAND with the matching UniqueID only, thus preventing unauthorized copies of the application to other storage mediums.

Features Overview: -- One-Chip Flash Data Storage -- High Capacity -- available in two capacities, 1GB and 2GB. -- High Performance -- 17MB/sec (read), 6MB/sec (write) -- USB 2.0 / 1.1 (High speed / full speed) -- Supports USB HDD/CD Boot -- JEDEC Standard P-FBGA 169-pin connector -- Hidden Memory Zone -- UniqueID -- Permanent "Self-Destruct" function -- Enhanced with UDRW Technology -- RoHS compliant, Lead-Free -- Also available in Type-A USB Drive and 10-pin USB module form factors.

Possible applications include: gaming -- arcade/slot, medical devices, thin client, set-top boxes, high-end MFP, GPS, and POS.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
