New tech paper: Optimizing Enterprise-Class SSD Host Controller Design

Enterprise SSD endurance and data reliability require unique interconnect features in host controller SoCs.

We have a new detailed technical paper written by Senior Solutions Architect Dee Lin and myself about the new challenges faced by enterprise SSD host controller teams in meeting SSD endurance, power and performance requirements.

How is SSD flash memory like a helicopter?

It destroys itself as it is operating.*

Bear with me now as I explain how SSD flash memory works similar to helicopters...

First, let's explain the helicopter part of this analogy: Fixed wing aviators (i.e. non-helicopter pilots) are keen to remind people that the act of converting a jet engine's axial force into the orthogonal axis required to spin a helicopter rotor requires a sophisticated gearbox that slowly (and sometimes not so slowly) grinds itself to death through friction.
