Enterprise Flash Controller

SF2600 & SF2500: Reliable, High-performance Solutions for Most Demanding Applications

  • Accelerate solid state drive performance in I/O intensive enterprise applications
  • Ensure critical operations with power failure protection that completes pending writes to flash in emergencies
  • Maximize endurance and longevity with DuraWrite™ data reduction technology that minimizes writes to flash memory
  • Protect critical data with high-level security protocols and automated hardware encryption
  • Provide high data reliability with enhanced ECC and RAISE data protection technology

Enterprise Flash Controller

SF3700: Build Robust PCIe and SATA Flash Storage for Enterprise Applications

  • Support native PCIe® Gen2 and SATA 6 Gb/s host interfaces in a single design for a greater manufacturing flexibility, and lower cost
  • Ensures that pending writes to flash are completed in the event of power loss with power failure protection
  • Provide high data reliability with SHIELD™ advanced error correction that further extends flash memory life by implementing a low-density parity check (LDPC) algorithm that combines hard-decision, soft-decision, DSP and adaptive ECC
  • Deliver enhanced RAISE technology that includes new levels of data protection and additional redundancy for mission critical enterprise solutions ensuring access to data even after a page, block, or full die fault
