07 August 2017

Microsemi Corp. has entered into production with its Flashtec NVM Express (NVMe) 2108 eight-channel controllers for enterprises and data centers worldwide.

The controllers feature high firmware reusability delivered in a 17 x 17 mm package in form factors such as M.2, U.2 and half-height half-length (HHHL) add-in cards.

The controllers feature dual-port, separate reference clock with independent spread (SRIS) and end-to-end data protection. It also provides a programmable architecture enabling SSD product differentiation through firmware customizations. The controllers’ low density parity check code (LDPC) allows for support of current and future generations of Toggle and Open NAND Flash Interface (ONFI), including multi-level cell (MLC) and triple level cell (TLC).

The Flashtec NVMe2108 controllers are available in volume production quantities now.
