SMART Modular Technologies (WWH), Inc. Key Developments

SMART Modular Sampling DDR4 NVDIMMs With SafeStor(TM) Technology

SMART Modular Technologies, Inc. has announced that its DDR4 4GB NVDIMMs are now available for sampling. SMART's full lineup of DDR4 NVDIMMs includes two configurations; a single rank eight bit in 4GB and 8GB densities, and a single rank four bit configuration in 8GB and 16GB densities. The additional 8GB and 16GB densities will be available for sampling in first quarter of 2015. Building on its focus to provide persistent memory solutions to its customers, SMART's new NVDIMMs are enhanced with SMART's proprietary SafeStor technology. SafeStor supports the engine which initiates backup and restore operations upon command from the host controller as well as manages the NAND Flash interface. The SafeStor engine employs multi-channel fast NAND and high-speed switching circuitry to provide robust backup and restore capability, all while functioning as a JEDEC standard DDR4 RDIMM during normal operation. Temporary power is provided to the NVDIMM during a sudden power loss (SPL) event by a hybrid supercap module, which can be tailored to individual application environments. SMART's expanded lineup of NVDIMMs features end-to-end error checking and correction capabilities to ensure a high level of data integrity during backup and restore operations. NVDIMMs offer performance, latency and data security benefits for a wide range of enterprise storage applications. SMART's DDR4 JEDEC-compliant NVDIMMs can be used in servers to store metadata in memory for application acceleration, check-pointing state for fast sync and restore, and host caching. In storage applications SMART's NVDIMMs are ideal for storing write data for reduced write latency, for fast RAID computation as a block device and as an SSD mapping table.

SMART Modular Technologies, Inc. Expands to DDR4 with its Ultra High Reliability Enterprise Memory Product Offering

SMART Modular Technologies, Inc. announced that it has expanded its lineup of enterprise memory products to include DDR4 modules. SMART has attained an exceptional reliability level of sub-two hundred DPPM with its DDR3 RDIMM Enterprise Memory and is achieving similar levels with DDR4 during its internal development process for these enterprise grade modules. This superior DPPM rate is accomplished utilizing a SMART proprietary Ultra-Reliability Test (URT) burn-in process. Early life failures and weak modules are eliminated through SMART's URT lab where every enterprise grade module undergoes a rigorous triple-stress process entailing hours of burn-in at high speed operation while running custom software at 99% DRAM utilization. SMART has shipped more than three hundred thousand of its DDR3 enterprise grade memory modules with a proven failure rate of less than 2 in 10,000. This DPPM rate translates into proven value for OEMs by improving data integrity, enhancing reputation, and reducing costs associated with failing memory.

SMART Modular Technologies PCIe-Based High Speed Persistent Memory Solution Using DDR3 ST-MRAM from Everspin Technologies, Inc

SMART Modular Technologies will demonstrate a PCIe-based, high speed, and persistent memory solution using DDR3 Spin-Torque MRAM (ST-MRAM) from Everspin Technologies, Inc. Committing R&D resources to promote the adoption of persistent, high-speed memory solutions, SMART has designed an FPGA based PCIe NVM card in conjunction with Everspin Technologies to demonstrate the functionality of Spin Torque MRAM technology. Everspin's EMD3D064M ST-MRAM is the commercially-available Spin Torque MRAM and the first in Everspin's roadmap of ST-MRAM solutions that meets storage system requirements; combining the speed and endurance of DRAM with the non-volatility of Flash. ST-MRAM gives designers of high perfoqrmance storage systems the ability to achieve ultra-low latency, increase reliability with high cycling endurance and protect data in the event of power loss.
