虽然 SATA 仍然是嵌入式和网络控制通信系统中的主要接口,但未来属于 PCIe。PCIe 突破了 SATA 的带宽限制,并且提供了组合多条通道的灵活解决方案。

提高性能的一项重要创新是专为非易失性存储设计的全新 NVMe 协议。它通过使用更高效的命令显著降低了读取和写入请求的延迟。

更高的性能伴随着更高的功耗要求,在常见的 4 通道配置下更是如此。

Swissbit N-10m2 模块、PCIe Gen3/NVMe 1.2 模块仅使用 2 条 PCIe 通道,可在不牺牲性能的前提下降低功耗。即使仅使用单一 PCIe 通道操作,性能仍会超过 SATA 限制。
为了满足高耐久性要求,N-10m2 还提供具有 N-16m2 系列名称的 pSLC 版本。它们提供超过十倍的 TWB 值。

新 N-20m2 是适用于 PCIe Gen3.1/NVMe 1.3 和 4 通道的稳定、低功耗解决方案。它支持主机内存缓冲器操作并提供高性能。
产品以小型 M.2 2230 格式(适用于小系统)、标准 2242 和 2280 大小提供。 此外,对于 N-20m2,还提供 pSLC 版本:N-26m2。

Data Care Management

Various effects like data retention, read disturb limits, or temperature can impact data reliability. The latest generation of Swissbit products use special methods to maintain and refresh the data for higher data integrity.

Life Time Monitoring (LTM)
Life time monitoring (LTM)

The Swissbit Life Time Monitoring feature enables users to access the memory device’s detailed Life Time Status and allows prediction of imminent failure, avoiding unexpected data loss. This feature uses an extended S.M.A.R.T. (Self-Monitoring, Analysis and Reporting Technology) interface or vendor-specific commands to retrieve the Flash product information.

Power Fail Protection & Recovery
Power fail protection

Intelligent Power Fail Protection and Recovery protects data from unexpected power loss. During an unintentional shutdown, firmware routines and an intelligent hardware architecture ensure that all system and user data will be stored to the NAND.

Read-only optimized
Read-only optimized

In many industrial applications the data is written to the NAND Flash once and is only read afterwards. For such cases, the firmware can be optimized in order to guarantee the highest possible data retention and less read disturb.

Secure erase
Secure erase (Sanitize / Purge) / Fast erase

This feature uses an uninterruptable sequence of data erase commands. Even a power off can’t stop the process, which will continue upon restoration of power. The optional enhanced feature allows the customer to sanitize the data according to different standards like DoD, NSA, IREC, etc. The purge algorithm can be started by a software command or through a hardware pin.

Shock & Vibration
Shock and vibration

Robustness is one of our key specification targets. The design, assembly and use of selected materials guarantee an extremely solid design which has been validated by extensive testing.

Temperature sensor
Temperature sensor

The sensor allows the host hardware or software to monitor the memory device temperature to improve data reliability in the target application environment.

TRIM support
Trim support

The TRIM command allows the operating system to inform the SSD which blocks of data are no longer considered in use and can be wiped out internally, which increases system performance in following write accesses. With TRIM Support data scrap can be deleted in advance, which otherwise would slow down future write operations to the involved blocks.

Write Amplification Factor
WAF reduction

The WAF (write amplification factor) for MLC-based products is reduced by combining a paged based FW block management with a powerful card architecture and configuration settings.

Wear leveling
Wear leveling

Sophisticated Wear Leveling and Bad Block Management ensure that Flash cells are sparingly and equally used in order to prolong life time of the device.

Wide temperature support
Wide temperature support

Swissbit‘s embedded memory and storage solutions are designed and approved for reliable operation over a wide temperature range. The products are verified at temperature corners and prestressed with a burn-in operating functional test (Test During Burn In – TDBI).
