Microchip Releases Industry’s First 24G SAS/PCIe Gen 4 Tri-mode Storage Controllers into Production

Category articles

Integrated circuit’s Smart Storage stack management devices simplify integration and also improve product flexibility for system integrators. The new Smart Storage space products support SFF’s Universal Backplane Management (UBM), Intel ® Virtual Pin Port (VPP) for smart backplane management, and also DMTF’s standards-based Platform Degree Data Version (PLDM)/ Redfish ® Tool Enablement (RDE) requirements streamlining the execution of out-of-band monitoring over Administration Part Transport Protocol (MCTP)/ Wall Management Controller (BMC).

” We remain to offer the most flexible and ingenious controller profile for a sector that is quickly moving to PCIe Gen4-based servers as well as NVMe SSDs for efficiency storage space while remaining to leverage SAS/SATA HDDs for bulk storage space,” stated Pete Hazen, vice president of Silicon chip’s information facility services business system. “Our industry firsts include assistance for a PCIe Gen 4 interface with DirectPath modern technology for low-latency NVMe purchases, and also 24G SAS with Dynamic Network Multiplexing (DCM) for a lot more efficient gathering of lower-speed SAS or SATA hard disk drives onto 24G SAS infrastructure.”

Silicon chip’s brand-new Smart Storage space platform offerings are sustained by the firm’s common set of deployment tools. These consist of maxView storage manager, ARCCONF management tools, DMTF’s standards-based PLDM/RDE and also ChipLink analysis devices.

Server OEMs and also cloud operators creating storage space platforms for next-generation data facilities need to deliver significantly higher efficiency via PCIe ® Gen 4 x16 CPU interfaces and also assistance for the current NVMe ™ SSDs and 24G SAS facilities. Microchip (Nasdaq: MCHP) today introduced manufacturing launch of the first items to supply these abilities; the Smart Storage Space PCIe Gen 4 Tri-Mode SmartROC (RAID-on-Chip) 3200 as well as SmartIOC (I/O Controller) 2200 storage space controllers additionally provide proven safety and also manageability functions for the most demanding web server storage applications.

SmartROC 3200 and also SmartIOC 2200 items support both x8 as well as x16 PCIe Gen 4 host user interfaces and also approximately 32 lanes of SAS/SATA/NVMe connection. Assistance for up to 8 GB of on-board cache triples the RAID efficiency contrasted to affordable alternatives, while DCM delivers link efficiency of higher than 99% while making certain complete interoperability with existing tradition SAS/SATA facilities.

Release Tools

Microchip’s Relied on System assistance delivers a new level of compute and also supply chain safety based upon a hardware root of count on that is lined up with the Open Compute Safety And Security Project. Silicon chip has broadened on its one-of-a-kind maxCrypto ™ Controller-Based File encryption (CBE) remedy to sustain SAS, SATA, and also now, NVMe media.
