LSI technology shows its next-gen SandForce controllers
LSI has recently demonstrated the innovations made in its LSI SandForce controller next-generation FMS (Flash Memory Summit). In this demonstration, LSI has shown some of the goodies in things to come from the company and the SandForce SF-2000 in particular which we shall soon be released with enhanced features.
For starters, it has been shown to include SHIELD LSI technology, an advanced method of error correction for improved data integrity especially in SSD business environments, even using flash memory that typically has a high error rate. SHIELD technology is a unique implementation of LDPC (low density parity check) and DSP (digital signal processing), and it will be available for the next generation of SandForce controllers for SSDs.
The other important part is that LSI also showed in the new series of the SandForce SF-2000 controller, now with support for the second generation of memory chips Toshiba 19nm NAND (A19nm), allowing SSDs manufacturers to make products more affordable, which ultimately translates into benefits for the end user.
