IPC Industrial PC Industry Solutions
Best-in Class IPC solutions with Stability, Durability and Manageability
Encompassing a wide range of demanding applications from ATMs to POS or medical electronics to gaming, the market for Industrial PC solution is growing rapidly. In 2011, the estimated worldwide IPC market is expected to reach $7 billion. The annual growth rate across the market has continued to be in the double digit range. Three areas in particular expected to grow by 30% this year--the health care/medical market, casino games (gaming) market, and the games market. As the market grows, SSDs are increasingly becoming the preferred choice for IPC storage. Lite-On’s SSDs are available in the form factors and specifications to fit the specific needs of each segment of the IPC market.
IPC devices inherently require more stability, durability, and manageability than do traditional computers. IPC devices must operate in difficult environments reliably. They need to endure the rigorous demands of exposure to extreme temperatures, humidity, and vibration. . In these conditions, the advantages of SSDs become clear: solid-state technology with no mechanical wear, no noise, low heat output, and low power consumption. Furthermore, the benefit of high-speed search/read performance and Lite-On strict testing regimen ensure the reliability of its SSDs. Lite-On can provide different specification SSD products depending on the application and environmental challenges, including drives for use in industrial temperature ranges (-40 °C to +85 °C) and commercial temperature ranges (0 °C to +70 °C).
Every Lite-On manufactured SSD product is tested using industry standard specification procedures, ensuring the reliability, stability, and excellent data retention. Furthermore, Lite-On SSD products undergo custom quality tests as per customer design requirements; thus providing best-in class storage solutions for medical equipment, gaming products, and digital signage.
Medical Electronic Equipment
The health care industry demands medical equipments with high reliability, high stability, and low maintenance needs. SSDs in these equipments must be long lasting and must remain error-free throughout their long lives. Every Lite-On SSD features Global Wear-Leveling, Bad Block management algorithms, built-in ECC error correction, and other diverse technologies ensuring high reliability data storage and a dramatic extension of the drive’s life. This means that you can be completely confident in every Lite-On SSD used in the medical equipments.
Lite-On understands the requirements of the gaming industry; we test all our drives using state-of-the-art FLEXSTAR test systems and ongoing reliability testing to simulate a variety of real working conditions. Drives are designed to withstand a variety of temperatures and shock and are impact resistant. They also support SMART (Self-Monitoring Analysis and Reporting Technology) and Security Command features and can have various customized services specifically based upon each customer’s needs. Together, this ensures that Lite-On SSDs used in gaming systems deliver the highest quality with complete reliability.
When high capacity storage is required for digital signage, the use of SSDs improves performance, simplifies design, and reduces maintenance costs. This is because SSD storage solutions have better shock resistance, longer data retention time, faster file search, and lower amounts of power consumption. Furthermore, with Lite-On, each device undergoes a rigorous 22.5 hour factory burn-in test to ensure the best quality product with excellent reliability and stability.
