TAIPEI, Taiwan, June 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- COMPUTEX 2012 -- LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) 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. Interactive demonstrations can be seen at the Computex Taipei 2012 exposition taking place this week in Taipei, Taiwan.
LSI SandForce FSPs are designed to provide best-in-class performance, reliability, endurance and power efficiency for NAND flash-based SSDs. With proven products available today, LSI offers SSD manufacturers a time-to-market advantage in building more affordable SSDs, helping to accelerate broad adoption of flash storage for cloud computing, enterprise and client 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.(1)
"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."As flash memory geometries continue to shrink, the need to incorporate best-in-class error correction becomes more critical. This is due to increasing difficulty for individual cells to hold a specific charge, often resulting in reduced reliability, data integrity and data retention characteristics in flash devices. To optimize the reliability and endurance of 19nm and 20nm flash storage, LSI's SandForce SF-2000 FSPs offer industry-leading support of up to 55-bit errors per 512 byte sector, ideal for a processor designed to support both enterprise and client markets. LSI SandForce products include a unique error-correction engine designed to address the ever-changing and increasing flash error-correction requirements of current and future state-of-the-art NAND flash technologies.
