Voltage Input Affect on SSD

How the Input Voltage Affects on Solid State Drive (SSD)

In ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems), PIS (Passenger Information System) and other embedded In-vehicle applications, such as video surveillance, data recording…usually or sometimes the voltage supply is unstable, SSD as embedded memory and storage device would be aggressively affected by unstable input voltage.

Then, how the input voltage affects the NAND Flash of SSD?

Here we have to mention the RBER (Raw-Bit Error Rage) firstly. RBER is the Bit Error Rate before ECC (Error Correction Code) performing, which reflects the initial reliability of NAND Flash. The higher RBER is, the less reliability of NAND Flash is.

To verify this point, we made test as below.

Firstly, per 0.3V as a voltage difference in set time, the below graph is the fluctuation between 3.3V-3.6V.

(4) When setting as 4.2V-4.5V, the RBER keeps increasing and up to 10^(-5.823).

4.2V-4.5V, the RBER keeps increasing and up to 10^(-5.823). Generally, the higher input voltage is, the

Generally, the higher input voltage is, the higher RBER is, and the greater impact to SSD performance.

Renice SSD solutions designed with appropriate circuit according to SSDs acceptable varying voltage, which will make sure our SSD can show high and stable reliability performance in harsh/ extreme environment.
