Microsemi, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions, has released its Flashtec NVM Express (NVMe) 2108 eight-channel controllers. This will enable leading enterprises and data centers to realize cost and power-efficient high capacity solid state drives (SSDs). The devices deliver robust mainstream performance and support for capacities to 16 GB and greater. Besides, customers will be able to avail the architectural consistency of the Flashtec NVMe Controller product line through high firmware reusability by minimizing engineering expense. Packed in a 17×17 mm package, the new line of controllers all popular form factors including M.2, U.2 and half-height half-length (HHHL) add-in cards.
The Flashtec NVMe2108 controllers offer a mature architecture with optimized power and cost for mainstream applications along with enterprise features like dual-port, Separate Reference Clock with Independent Spread (SRIS) and end-to-end data protection. Besides, its programmable architecture enables SSD product differentiation through firmware customizations.
Moving on, the NVMe2108HC and NVMe2108LC variants support different capacity points to align with specific industry needs. Their adaptive low-density parity-check code (LDPC) enables support for current and future generations of Toggle and Open NAND Flash Interface (ONFI), including multi-level cell (MLC) and (triple level cell) TLC, as well as QLC in future product developments.
