IDT Breaks Flash Controller Ground
IDT (NASDAQ:IDTI) has announced that it has delivered the industry’s first single-chip enterprise-class flash controller with native PCIe. Co-developed with Micron Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ:MU) for exclusive use in Micron’s recently announced P320h PCIe solid-state storage system, the PCIe SSD targets high-performance enterprise applications. Business Wire reports IDT’s PCIe enterprise Flash controllers reduce system power and latency by eliminating the traditional storage infrastructure and directly attaching the SSD to the processor’s PCIe host bus.
"’Micron’s P320h PCIe SSD leads the industry in performance for enterprise-class applications,’ said Gary Gentry, general manager, enterprise division, Micron’s NAND solutions group. ‘The performance we’re able to achieve with the P320h wouldn’t be possible without the tight integration of the controller coupled with our industry-leading NAND Flash. The PCIe and DDR interface designs that IDT provided for the controller played an integral role in enabling Micron to deliver a best-in-class PCIe SSD solution.’”
