LSI To Showcase SandForce Technology For Mobile Computing Applications At Flash Memory Summit 2012

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FLASH MEMORY SUMMIT – LSI Corporation (NYSE: LSI) today announced that it will feature LSI® SandForce® SF-2200/2100 Client Flash Storage Processors (FSPs) in mobile computing technology demonstrations at the Flash Memory Summit, August 21-23, at the Santa Clara Convention Center.


LSI SandForce FSPs are the intelligence that manages flash memory in solid state drives (SSDs) and enable the power efficiency, accelerated application performance and sleek, lightweight designs that are driving the rapid growth of Ultrabooks™ and other mobile computing devices.

"LSI SandForce FSPs have been an ideal solution for meeting the high performance, longer battery life and compact form factor our ZENBOOK™ customers demand," said Y.C. Chen, Senior Director, Product Marketing Division, ASUS. "The complete solution approach from LSI SandForce also enables a faster time-to-market, which has been key to our early success in the rapidly expanding Ultrabook market segment."

In addition, LSI experts will participate in tutorials and panel sessions discussing the latest flash memory-based technologies and trends, including PCIe ® flash cards and emerging storage interfaces, and provide their perspective on how they are impacting the current and future IT landscape.

"Flash, with its high performance, low latency and low power consumption, is seeing rapid adoption across client and datacenter computing," said Jeff Richardson, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, LSI. "At the show we'll demonstrate the strong user benefits and customer return on investment that LSI's flash-based products deliver."
