Mobiveil’s Patented LDPC-Based Flash Reliability IP, Enterprise Flash Controller, and Universal NVM Express Controller Reduces SSD Designers’ Time to Market
Milpitas, CA—March 26, 2015—Mobiveil, Inc., a fast growing supplier of silicon intellectual property (SIP), platforms and IP-enabled design services, today announced Low-Density Parity Check LDPC-based flash reliability IP that offers solid-state drive (SSD) System on Chip (SoC) and FPGA designers a silicon footprint half the size of other LDPC IP blocks currently on the market. Combining the compact, extended reliability LDPC IP with Mobiveil’s Enterprise Flash Controller IP and Universal NVM Express Controller (UNEX) IP drastically reduces time to market, by providing designers a fully proven and integrated platform.
“As a leading supplier of memory and high-speed interface controller intellectual properties and platforms, Mobiveil is proud to introduce its small footprint extended reliability LDPC IP,” says Ravi Thummarukudy, CEO of Mobiveil, Inc. “As NAND flash technology migrates from 2-bit per cell MLC to 3-bit per cell TLC, the long term endurance of these cells decline and sophisticated error correction schemes, like LDPC are needed in solid state drive designs to offset this decline. Mobiveil’s small footprint, extended endurance LDPC IP provides superior performance while seamlessly combining with our existing UNEX NVMe and Enterprise Flash Controller IP to provide our customers a complete IP solution for building solid state drive designs for enterprise and client applications.”
“Implemented in the smallest area with the industry’s lowest power consumption, the Mobiveil LDPC technologies exploit the actual physics-based flash device characteristics to extend the durability of the flash memory,” declared Andrei Vityaev, Member of Mobiveil’s Advisory Board. “The Mobiveil LDPC IP dramatically extends the endurance and retention of NAND Flash and other block-based memories compared to currently available solutions, enabling next-generation solutions to use 1x/1y/1z nm, 3D technologies with significantly improved reliability and endurance.”
The Solid State Drive Market
The growth of solid state drives is detailed in recent market research data. According to EMC Corp., flash has become an indispensable component of data center storage. This is reflected in the continued rapid growth of flash shipments. “The primary influencer in the solid-state storage array market is the declining solution price, from $11.12/GB in 2012 to IDC’s forecast 2016 price of $2.88/GB, a 2012–2016 CAGR of minus 28.7 percent,” according to Hitachi Data Systems. “From a capacity perspective, capacity shipped in 2012 was 31PB, compared with 27.5EB for the enterprise storage array segment and 251PB for the I/O intensive segment.”
About Mobiveil LDPC IP
Mobiveil’s low power and small area, half that of competitive alternatives, LDPC IP supports a wide range of data-rates from 50MB/s to 4.0GB/s for a single LDPC instance. The scalable LDPC platform supports codeword sizes from 500 user bytes, to over 8K user bytes with selectable maximum parity byte overhead of up to 30 percent; several parameters for degree of parallelism; and memory access options. The LDPC IP offers simultaneous support for several LDPC codes and simultaneous support for different amounts of parity, as well as on-the-fly switching from one LDPC code to another. The IP has been ported to FPGA, eASIC, and ASIC (40LP UMC, 40G and 28HPM TSMC).
Mobiveil’s LDPC is available immediately for licensing and can be bundled with the company’s Universal NVM Express Controller (UNEX) and Enterprise Flash Controller (EFC). For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
