By eeNews Europe

The devices provide a standards-based solid-state drive (SSD) solution, enabling storage and server OEMs to overcome latency and throughput bottlenecks inherent to legacy SAS/SATA-based SSD designs.

IDT’s new flash memory controller family consists of two versions: 16-channel with PCIe x4 Gen 3 (89HF16P04AG3) and 32-channel with PCIe x8 Gen 3 (89HF32P08AG3). The flash controllers are designed to fully comply with the NVMe standard – a standard that defines an optimized register interface, command set, and feature set for PCIe SSDs. The goal of the standard is to help enable the broad adoption of PCIe-based SSDs, and to provide a scalable interface that realizes the performance potential of SSD technology now and into the future. This eliminates the need for OEMs to qualify multiple SSD drivers, facilitating the widespread use of PCIe SSDs and helping bring to market dramatic improvements in storage latency, throughput, power consumption and cost.

In addition to fully supporting the PCIe Gen3 host interface for maximum throughput, the flash controllers are fully programmable, enabling customers to differentiate their solutions with custom firmware that leverages IDT’s reference firmware. The flash controllers also support enterprise-class features, including advanced encryption, data integrity and reliability features.
