Everspin Technologies, Inc., a developer and manufacturer of Magnetoresistive RAM (MRAM) persistent memory solutions, announced that Phison Electronics will provide native support for Everspin’s 1 Gb STT-MRAM memory in its next generation enterprise SSD controller lineup.
Phison controllers with Everspin’s 1 Gb STT-MRAM enable storage system designers to increase the performance of systems where high-performance data persistence is critical. This is accomplished by delivering protection against power loss without the use of supercapacitors or batteries.
Phison is shipping more than 600 million SSD controllers annually. Phison controllers with the Everspin 1 Gb STT-MRAM part offer storage system designers more effective management of I/O streams, creating a higher degree of latency determinism. It also allows storage OEMs to improve quality of service.
“As enterprise SSD manufacturers seek smaller form factors and increased performance, STT-MRAM delivers high-speed, non-volatile write buffer which enables higher performance and storage density,” said Rizwan Ahmed, Everspin Vice President of Marketing. “By partnering with Phison, we’re bringing our 1 Gb STT-MRAM technology to next-generation enterprise SSD controllers.”
“Adding native support for Everspin’s 1 Gb STT-MRAM to our controllers enables our hyperscale and enterprise OEM customers to increase performance, reduce latency and dramatically improve quality of service,” said CS Ma, Phison CTO. “Everspin’s STT-MRAM is the best solution available for SSD designers to optimize footprint, performance, endurance, and reliability.”
Everspin and Phison will be hosting a technical session at the Flash Memory Summit conference in Santa Clara, California (August 6-8) to provide insights on MRAM use-cases in enterprise applications.
