Reliable Data Storage for Automotive Applications


Reading time ( words)

Swissbit will be exhibiting at the VDI Congress ELIV (Electronic in Vehicles) which is taking place from 18–19 October 2017 at the World Conference Center in Bonn. On booth #147, Swissbit will present a selection of particularly robust and durable SSDs and memory cards, and will also focus on one specific theme: secure storage modules as a solution for the challenges of networked automotive electronics.

Car-2-Infrastructure communication, automated driving, assistance systems, over-the-air software updates, infotainment - for current trends in automotive electronics, data and communication security is both a requirement and a challenge. With its Secure SD and microSD memory cards, Swissbit offers components for security solutions in automotive electronics. The secure memory cards can be optimized for different tasks. For example, a flash memory configured as read-only ensures that vehicle data recorded during vehicle operation cannot be manipulated later and provides evidential value in case of a dispute. Other storage media are used to protect reference databases for driver assistance systems.

Connected-Car-components with ID

Communication via bus systems, the internet or between components of car electronics as well as with external IT systems, must be secured. Data security is a key part of functional security. Swissbit offers SD memory cards with a Secure Element. This provides a cost-effective, easy-to-implement, and at the same time secure way to assign a unique identity to each participant in machine-to-machine communication. At the same time, such a memory card can be used for encryption of communication data.
