IBX MicroSom eMMC


The embedded card (eMMC) is still widely used in the industry as a primary means of integrated storage in portable devices. It provides a low-cost flash memory system with a built-in controller that can reside inside an phone or low-cost PC and appear to its host as a bootable device, in lieu of a more expensive form of solid-state storage, like the traditional solid-state drive.


The MicroSom's default is 4GB. If you need a customized setup - we can offer eMMCs up to 128 GB - feel free to contact us.


If you run an operationsystem like Ubuntu or Debian CLI directly from the eMMC, some error messages showed up. This does not happen if you use the eMMC as a storage only. This is aused by some firmeware bug of the current Samsung 4GB eMMC Model.

We are waiting for an updated firmware of the current 4GB model.
