Cypress Parallel NvSRAM Nonvolatile Memory Selected By LSI For Use In Industry’s First 12Gb/s SAS Host Bus Adapters

Cypress Semiconductor Corp. (Nasdaq: CY) today announced that LSI has selected Cypress’s parallel nonvolatile Static Random Access Memories ( nvSRAMs) for its new 12Gb/s SAS Host Bus Adapters (HBA) for high-performance servers, workstations and external storage systems. The nvSRAMs provide the SAS HBAs with high-speed and low-voltage fail-safe memory that enhances LSI’s solutions. LSI also chose the parallel nvSRAM for its flexibility to operate at different voltages and for its established track record as a journal memory.

LSI recently introduced the  LSI® SAS 9300 HBA family, the industry’s first 12Gb/s SAS HBA solution for high-performance servers, workstations and external storage systems. The family accelerates storage and is designed to meet the high-performance application needs for a range of environments including transactional databases, Web 2.0, data mining, video streaming and editing.

Cypress’s parallel nvSRAMs offer access times as low as 25 ns, making them the fastest asynchronous nonvolatile RAMs in the market. nvSRAMs feature infinite read, write and recall cycles, with 20-year data retention, making them the ideal solution for applications requiring continuous high-speed writing of data and absolute nonvolatile data security, without a battery back-up.

”The transition to 12Gb/s SAS has been fueled by the needs of businesses to manage an ever-increasing volume of storage in datacenters,” said Robin Wagner, senior director of marketing at LSI. “We have had proven success with nvSRAMs as a journal memory, and they met our stringent performance requirements for the LSI 9300 product family. The flexibility of parallel nvSRAMs to extend operation below 3V simplified the design process and accelerated our time to market.”

“We’re pleased to have storage industry leader LSI adopt our parallel nvSRAMs,” said Rainer Hoehler, Senior Director of the Nonvolatile Products Business Unit at Cypress. “Having parallel nvSRAMs used in the industry’s first 12Gb/s solution is a strong validation of the speed and reliable performance they deliver.”
