ADDING MULTIMEDIA IDT NVM Express Enterprise Flash Controller Recognized as Product of the Year by Electronic Products Magazine and Best Electronic Design by Electronic Design Magazine
SAN JOSE, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
Integrated Device Technology (News - Alert), Inc. (IDT®)
(NASDAQ: IDTI), the Analog and Digital Company™ delivering essential
mixed-signal semiconductor solutions, today announced that it has earned
a Product of the Year award from Electronic Products Magazine and a 2012
Best Electronic Design award from Electronic Design Magazine for its NVM
Express (NVMe) enterprise
flash memory controller with native support for PCIe® Gen
Each year the editors of Electronic Products - a leading trade
publication for electronic design engineers - select what they believe
are the most significant of the thousands of new products introduced
during the year as a way of recognizing excellence in product
development. IDT's NVMe
flash controller family is an industry-first and provides a standard
NVMe PCIe solid-state drive (SSD) solution, enabling storage and server
original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to overcome latency and
throughput bottlenecks inherent to legacy SAS (News - Alert)/SATA-based SSD designs.
"We are honored that our family of NVMe-compliant PCIe flash controllers
has been recognized by Electronic Products Magazine, a prestigious
electronic design magazine, for the technical superiority demonstrated
by our devices," said Kam Eshghi, senior director of marketing of the
Enterprise Computing Division of IDT. "In addition, our NVMe flash
controllers were also recognized as a 2012 Best Electronic Design Award
Winner in the digital category by Electronic Design Magazine, another
leading publication in the electronics industry."
IDT's enterprise flash controller family consists of two versions:
16-channel with PCIe x4 Gen 3 (89HF16P04AG3)
and 32-channel with PCIe x8 Gen 3 (89HF32P08AG3).
The flash controllers are designed to fully comply with the NVMe
1.1 standard - a standard that defines an optimized register
interface, command set, and feature set for PCIe SSDs. The goal of the
standard is to help enable the broad adoption of PCIe-based SSDs, and to
provide a scalable interface that realizes the performance potential of
SSD technology now and into the future. This eliminates the need for
OEMs to qualify multiple SSD drivers, facilitating the widespread use of
PCIe SSDs and helping bring to market dramatic improvements in storage
latency, throughput, power consumption and cost.
The 2012 Product of the Year Awards were announced in the January 2012
issue of Electronic Products with a cover feature and a brief
description of each product. Details of the Electronic Design Magazine
