Phison at the forefront of PCIe Gen4 storage market with a portfolio of products

5 Aug 2019 Santa Clara - As the first and only company shipping PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe SSD solutions, Phison Electronics is the industry expert in enabling high-performance computing for bandwidth-hungry applications. In developing these solutions, Phison is ushering in a new era for applications expected to meet the demand for increasingly faster and higher-definition digital experiences.

The PCIe 4.0 standard offers double the data transfer rate over the prior PCIe 3.0 version. The increased data transfer rate, signal reliability and integrity of PCIe Gen4 enables technology solutions providers with the ability to deliver greater performance, additional flexibility and lower latency to a multitude of applications, including PC, gaming, mobile, storage and networking.

"There is continued pressure in the industry to improve the performance of computing systems to support the applications that end users are most interested in. PCIe 4.0 offers manufacturers a way to meet these consumer demands", stated Chris Kilburn, corporate vice president and general manager, Client Channel, AMD. "AMD is delighted to work with Phison to raise the bar by introducing first-to-market solutions. Through sound engineering and design, we are working together to deliver the experiences our customers demand."

According to CEO and Co-Founder of Liqid, Sumit Puri, "PCIe Gen4 will unleash the performance capabilities required for next generation data centric applications, including artificial intelligence and 5G edge computing. The LQD4500 provides 32TB of capacity and a PCIe Gen4x16 interface that enables over 24GB/s of throughput and 4 million IOPS. This impressive performance is only possible by aggregating multiple Phison E16 NVMe controllers into a single device. The Phison E16 provides industry leading performance, capacity and NVMe features required to build the PCIe Gen4 enabled data centre of the future. Liqid is excited that the Phison E16 is now powering the fastest storage in the world, the LQD4500."

Phison's first-to-market position in this emerging space is due to the company's decades of experience in memory technology, excellence in engineering and innovation in flash memory products. Whereas others have yet to debut their Gen4 solutions, Phison has developed a package of products to address multiple sockets within the consumer space.

Among its portfolio of PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe products currently available or planned for release within the next year are:

  • PS5016-E16: a high-end controller that can easily reach speeds of 5GB/s sequential reads and 4.4GB/s sequential writes, the fastest sequential reads and writes for a single M.2 SSD
  • PS5019-E19T: offering low power controllers for mainstream drives, delivering best-in-class power savings and reducing cooling needs in data centres for all-day computing, available 4Q 2019
  • PS5018-E18: builds on the success of E16 to deliver even higher levels of performance with speeds of 7GB/s reads and writes, available 2Q 2020, in advanced 12nm process node.

The entire portfolio of Phison PCIe Gen4 solutions is designed for quality by providing end-to-end data path protection, dynamic SLC cache support and integrated security support for the latest encryption standards.

Phison PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe controllers are currently shipping in a number of technology partners' products, enabling them to differentiate their own best-in-class solutions. These solutions provide users with advances in 8K high-definition gaming capabilities, high-performance computing, artificial intelligence, machine learning and others.

"After several years since the announcement of the standard, the era of PCIe 4.0 solutions is upon us and Phison is at the forefront of this movement with our portfolio of Gen4x4 solutions", stated K.S. Pua, CEO of Phison Electronics. "We pride ourselves with our long history of innovation supporting emerging technologies. From doubling transfer rates, to improving power consumption to increasing performance, Phison-based SSD solutions allow our integration partners to deliver the next-generation PC, gaming and storage systems needed to satisfy increasing consumer demand."
