Additionally, the company showcased solutions that support storage techniques including 4K LDPC, data encryption and protection, multi-level power management, and high-speed interfaces.
The following products, in particular during the live demo session, were exhibited with performance:
PCIe 5.0 SSD reference design，with random read up to 3 million IO/ss
The Tacoma IG5669 PCIe 5.0 x4 SSD controller, released by the company in 1H22, attracted attention. It enables sequential RW speeds of up to 14GB/s and 11GB/s, respectively. It displays the amazing random read up to 3 million IO/s during the live demo session.
It represents the next gen SSD controller, extending the capabilities of advanced storage controller technology and maximizing PCIe Gen 5’s capabilities.
It features 16 or 18 NAND channels, PCIe 5.0 x4, and NVMe 2.0. To take advantage of PCIe 5.0’s bandwidth advantage and to fulfill the expanding storage and computation requirements, it utilizes multiple RISC-V CPU cores. Widespread applications for it include high-end data centers, enterprise software, and high-performance PCs.
PCIe 4.0 DRAMless SSD reference design, with NAND speed reaching 2,400MT/s
In 2021, the firm introduced the RainierQX IG5220-PCIe 4.0 x4 DRAMless SSD controller. It was the first PCIe 4.0 DRAMless SSD controller that could offer 2,400MT/s NAND speed. In the mid to high-end consumer SSD market, RainierQX, with NAND speed of 2,400MT/s, is a cost-effective alternatives to DRAM-based solutions with eperformance and low power consumption. It supports sequential read speeds of up to 7.4GB/s and sequential write speeds of up to 6.4GB/s.
PCIe 4.0 ZNS SSD reference design
The company is utilizing its controllers to provide customized SSD solutions to their customers. Based on its Rainier family of SoCs, which are used in multiple tier-1 data centers, the firm conceived and produced the PCIe 4.0 ZNS SSD reference design, among other important products.
At FMS, the firm’s customized PCIe 4.0 ZNS SSD solution demonstrated increased SSD performance for data center applications like RocksDB by eliminating background garbage collection.
At the event, the company also showcased more products and SSD reference designs, including enterprise-grade SATA SSDs, PCIe 3.0 QLC SSDs, and PCIe 4.0 QLC SSDs.
