Microsemi’s second-generation Flashtec NVMe2032 and NVMe2016 controllers support the standard NVMe host interface and are optimized for high-performance 4KB random read/write operations, performing all flash management operations on-chip and consuming negligible host processing and memory resources. In addition, the controllers can achieve up to 1 million random read input/output operations per second (IOPS).
“We congratulate Microsemi on the production release of its second-generation NVMe 2032/2016 enterprise NVMe controller with a high-performance, flexible low-density parity-check engine,” said Eric Endebrock, vice president of Storage Marketing Micron. “These types of enabling technologies align to Micron’s 3D NAND needs which are focused on mission-critical and high performance workloads.”
Hyperscale and enterprise data centers continue adopting NVMe due to the high speed and low latency connection between SSDs and host processors, providing significant performance advantages over SAS and SATA. According to market research firm IDC’s report titled, “Worldwide Solid State Drive Forecast, 2015–2019,” the number of high-performance PCIe-based SSD units has an estimated compound annual growth rate of 44 percent from 2014-2019. As part of Microsemi’s broad Flashtec controller family, the NVMe2032 and NVMe2016 controllers cater to this growing demand for robust NVMe-based solutions, with the devices optimized for power efficiency while providing customers the highest levels of performance, data integrity and reliability.
