LSI Demonstrates SSDs with Toshiba 19nm & Intel 20nm NAND Flash
LSI Corporation today announced several demonstrations of its award-winning SandForce SF-2000 Flash Storage Processors (FSPs) using Toshiba 19nm and Intel 20nm NAND flash memory, the most advanced flash memory technology currently available for solid state drive (SSD) applications. Shipments of SSDs in client and enterprise markets are expected to exceed 100 million units in 2015, representing a 56 percent growth rate over 2011 shipments. LSI is showing at Computex 2012 that the company is paving the way and is able to use the latest NAND Flash with the companies current SSD controllers or processor as they like to call them.
“SSD users want to benefit from the significant cost advantages of the leading flash processes, but most SSD controllers can't support the complexities of the most advanced chips," said Jim Handy, SSD analyst for Objective Analysis. "By supporting today's smallest NAND processes, LSI provides OEMs and end users access to the most cost-effective deployment of flash memory in primary and I/O- intensive data storage workloads across cloud-computing, enterprise and client applications.”
