Greenliant increases adoption of embedded SSDs
“As NAND flash memory continues to rapidly shrink, making it difficult for embedded products to keep up, a standard-interface storage solution that doesn’t require redesigns at each new geometry node is needed,” said Michael Yang, Principal Analyst for Memory & Storage, iSuppli Corporation. “The timing is right for BGA package SSDs like NANDrive.”Compatible with the latest generation chipsets, SATA NANDrive combines Greenliant’s proprietary high-performance NAND flash controller with up to eight NAND flash die in a multi-chip package. As a fully integrated SSD—when compared to using discrete NAND and a controller—NANDrive improves customers’ time-to-market by eliminating the need to procure and qualify multiple chips.
“By offering NANDrive with a SATA interface, we are providing our automotive, industrial, medical and enterprise networking customers an essential building block for their embedded systems,” said Bing Yeh, CEO of Greenliant Systems. “Products that use NANDrive—such as robotics, ruggedized tablets, blade servers and car infotainment systems—have unique storage requirements. They need SSDs that will reliably preserve data integrity, with long operating life and ‘military-grade’ security options, which are Greenliant’s areas of expertise and where NANDrive excels.”
The addition of SATA II-compliant GLS85LS devices builds on the success of Greenliant’s PATA (GLS85LD and GLS85LP) products, expanding its portfolio of NANDrive embedded SSDs.
SATA NANDrive is available now.
