Microsemi’s New Gen 4 PCIe NVMe 3016 Offers the Most Flexible and Programmable Controller

The newly announced Flashtec™ NVMe 3016 Gen 4 PCIe controller is now sampling to early adopter customers. As the industry’s first enterprise controller of its kind, the NVMe 3016 addresses market demand for high-reliability, high-performance PCIe Gen 4 NVMe solid state drives (SSDs) and is capable of delivering greater than 8 GB per second throughput and more than 2 million IOPS.

The NVMe 3016 provides end-to-end enterprise class data integrity with high reliability and exceptionally strong RAID and ECC to support next-generation triple level-cell (TLC) and quad level-cell QLC NAND technologies well-suited to the high growth storage end point markets, such as data center, server and storage. Its flexibility and programmability provide users the opportunity to uniquely optimize their own SSD solutions for a wide variety of applications including NVMe, KV and Open Channel SSDs, while its programmable flash channel controller interface enables customers to future-proof for multiple generations of NAND technologies.

Microsemi’s Flashtec NVMe 3016 controller supports best-in-class enterprise features going beyond the NVMe 1.3 protocol with the latest in security, encryption, virtualization and high availability support.

Fast design of PCIe Gen 4 NVMe SSDs is enabled with Flashtec firmware development acceleration tools, including an architectural simulator to enable development and debug of firmware independent of silicon. As the third-generation Flashtec enterprise NVMe controller, the NVMe 3016 controller is designed for customer reuse of previously developed firmware on earlier generation devices, and comes with NVMe evaluation boards as well as a complementary software development kit (SDK).

Microsemi’s Flashtec NVMe 3016 is part of a full end-to-end solution of storage infrastructure and endpoint solutions for PCIe Gen 4.
