IP-Maker to showcase NVMe Host demo at Flash Memory Summit

August 03, 2018, anysilicon

IP-Maker announces the availability of a NVMe Host reference design, to be showcased at Flash Memory Summit, in Santa Clara, on August 7 to 9. It highlights the integration of the NVMe Host IP from IP-Maker in a powerful FPGA, able to manage data transfer with a Gen3 x4 NVMe SSD, without requiring any CPU and software. This technology delivers a best in class performance per watt NVMe Host manager, ready to accelerate next generation of server architectures.


“We are excited to showcase at FMS a new technology that will leverage server architecture improvement.”, said Mickael Guyard, Product Marketing Director at IP-Maker. “The future will definitely see new server architectures, from data centric to near storage processing, and we think that our NVMe Host IP will help a lot in providing a CPU offload and low latency NVM access.


As NVMe is the new standard storage interface, new fast interfaces to NVMe SSDs are required. The NVMe host IP is a full hardware accelerator replacing the software NVMe host driver. It can be used in numerous applications such as:


-NVMe to NVMe Host Bus Adapter: NVMe SSD aggregation to improve the system performance and reliability with an advanced namespace management.

-Computational storage: adding advanced computing to the HBA controller for a local processing

-Data centric architecture: making a low latency bridge between interconnects and NVMe SSDs

The demo will be showcased on IP-Maker booth (#710) and explained during a session at the conference on Tuesday Aug 7.
