By Francis Pelletier on 2016.12.15
Super Talent Technology, Corp., San Jose, CA, has been assigned a patent (9,489,258) developed by Yu, Frank, Palo Alto, CA, Ma, Abraham C., Fremont, CA, Chen, Shimon, Los Gatos, CA, Chang, Yao-Tse, Taichung, Taiwan, and Zhou, Yan, Wuhan, China, for a "green NAND SSD application and driver."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A GNSD Driver coupled to host DRAM, and having a memory manager, a data grouper engine, a data ungrouper engine, a power manager, and a flush/resume manager. The GNSD driver is coupled to a GNSD application, and the host DRAM to a Non-Volatile Memory Device. The GNSD Driver further includes a compression/decompression engine, a de-duplication engine, an encryption/decryption engine, or a high-level error correction code engine. The encryption/decryption engine encrypts according to DES or AES. A method of operating a GNSD Driver and a GNSD application coupled to DRAM of a host, includes coupling: Configuration and Register O/S Settings to the host and the GNSD Application, a data grouper and data ungrouper to the host DRAM and to Upper and a Lower Filter, a power manager and a memory manager to the host, a flush/resume manager to the DRAM, and the DRAM to an SEED SSD."
The patent application was filed on May 3, 2016 (15/145,383).
