Silicon Motion Expands Ferri Series Single-Package SSD Portfolio

Silicon Motion Technology Corporation, a global leader in designing and marketing NAND flash controllers for solid state storage devices, today introduces new additions to its Ferri portfolio with single-package Ferri-eMMC and ultra-high performance SATA 6 Gb/s FerriSSD embedded memory solutions supporting industrial and commercial grade temperatures. Silicon Motion will be showcasing and demonstrating these new products at the upcoming EE Live! Conference and Expo in San Jose, CA from April 1 to 3.

Ferri-eMMC is designed for a wide range of embedded applications and is fully compliant with JEDEC-standard eMMC 4.5 protocol. With a 100-ball 1.0 mm pitch BGA package, Ferri-eMMC provides for more flexible PCB design and low-cost manufacturing. Ferri-eMMC delivers market leading data integrity and protection capabilities featuring Silicon Motion's advanced NAND management technologies including error correction, bad block management and NAND health monitoring.

New Ferri-eMMC parts:
  • SM667 for high reliability applications that require up to 30K Program/Erase (P/E) cycles
  • SM661 for cost effective systems with less stringent endurance requirements
Silicon Motion's latest FerriSSD products are single-package SATA 6 Gb/s SSDs that feature embedded DRAM to enhance data storage efficiency and increase performance. These highly integrated solutions embed Silicon Motion's NAND flash controller, industry standard NAND flash memory and DRAM in a small 90-ball, 1.0 mm pitch BGA package (16x20x2 mm). The embedded DRAM extends the SSD life and delivers best-in-class performance of up to 80,000 random IOPs. These solutions also leverage advanced Silicon Motion technologies including PowerShield, DataPhoenix, Intelligent Scan & DataRefresh, SSDLifeGuard health-monitoring, remote firmware update, and other patented proprietary features.

New FerriSSD parts:
  • SM659 for high reliability applications that require up to 30K Program/Erase (P/E) cycles
  • SM619 for cost effective systems with less stringent endurance requirements
"We are very excited to add new Ferri-eMMC and SATA 6Gb/s FerriSSD products to our successful portfolio of Ferri solutions. With our expanded product range, we are better able to bring industrial-grade and commercial-grade, single-package SSD solutions to an increasingly wide range of embedded applications, such as server, thin client, POS, office automation, HMI devices, factory automation, gaming, medical equipment, surveillance and in-vehicle infotainment that require eMMC 4.5 or faster SATA 3.1 performance," said Wallace Kou, President and CEO of Silicon Motion. "Industrial and commercial devices that require instant boot-up and reduced operating system and software load time benefit from our highly reliable, high endurance, compact single-package SSDs."
