Microchip Technology and KIOXIA America Successfully Complete the Industry’s First 24G SAS End-to-End Storage Interoperability Testing

Successful product interoperability testing paves the way for broad industry deployment of 24G SAS infrastructure

CHANDLER, Ariz., June 17, 2020 – Microchip Technology (Nasdaq: MCHP) and KIOXIA America, Inc. (formerly Toshiba Memory America, Inc.) today announced the successful completion of the industry’s first 24G SAS End-to-End Storage interoperability testing. Industry-standard 24G SAS Infrastructure delivers improved performance, security and reliability to data center, cloud, hyperscale and enterprise server/storage customers while preserving existing investments in SAS infrastructure.

This interoperability testing demonstrates that Microchip’s industry-leading suite of 24G SAS products and KIOXIA 24G SAS Solid-State Drives (SSDs) can be utilized together as part of next-generation storage solutions. Microchip’s 24G SAS tested products included the SmartROC 3200 PCIe® Gen 4 Tri-Mode RAID On Chip (ROC) Controller, the SmartIOC 2200 Input/Output Controller (IOC), and the SXP 24G SAS expander. New server and storage systems can be deployed utilizing these proven components that increase system performance while maintaining backward compatibility with existing infrastructure.

Created to complement the latest PCIe Gen 4 data center input/output (I/O) specifications, the 24G SAS (SAS-4/SPL-5) standard doubles the storage interconnect bandwidth of the prior SAS standard, eliminates bottlenecks at the CPU host interface, and allows more efficient use of both new and legacy storage infrastructure. 24G SAS includes robust Forward Error Correction (FEC) that supports the broad range of enterprise-quality server/storage use cases while minimizing system costs.

Please let us know if you would like to speak to a subject matter expert on 24G SAS implementation. For more information visit the web sites of Microchip and KIOXIA. Customers can secure product samples by contacting a Microchip sales representative.

True 3D EM Modeling Enables Fast, Accurate Analysis

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

Tired of patchwork 3D EM analysis? Impedance discontinuity can destroy your BER and cause multiple design iterations. Using today’s 3D EM modeling tools can take you days to accurately model the interconnect structures. The Clarity™ 3D Solver lets you tackle the most complex EM challenges when designing systems for 5G, high-performance computing, automotive and machine learning applications. The Clarity 3D Solver delivers gold-standard accuracy, 10X faster analysis speeds and virtually unlimited capacity for true 3D modeling of critical interconnects in PCB, IC package and system-on-IC (SoIC) designs.
