How Memory Design Optimizes System Performance


Exponential increases in data and demand for improved performance to process that data has spawned a variety of new approaches to processor design and packaging, but it also is driving big changes on the memory side. While the underlying technology still looks very familiar, the real shift is in the way those memories are connected to processing elements and various components within a syste... » read more

PCIe 6.0, NVMe, And Emerging Form Factors For Storage Applications


PCIe 6.0 implementations are expandable and hierarchical with embedded switches or switch chips, allowing one root port to interface with multiple endpoints (such as storage devices, Ethernet cards, and display drivers). While the introduction of PCIe 6.0 at 64GT/s helped to increase the bandwidth available for storage applications with minimal or no increase in latency, the lack of coherency s... » read more

What’s In A Name(space)? Optimizing SSD Controller Performance And Verification


Solid state drives (SSDs) have come to the forefront as a promising solution for today and tomorrow’s immense data transfer and storage demands. And SSDs themselves are constantly evolving with upgrades of their critical components to provide higher access speeds. One such component for the NVMe specification is created by the division of non-volatile memory (NVM) into what are commonly known... » read more
