DDR4 NVDIMMs combine non-volatile memory functionality with high speed DDR4 DRAM technology and provide a persistent memory solution to significantly accelerate application performance in server and storage appliances. Learn More.
The nvNITRO Storage Accelerator is a revolutionary MRAM based SSD that has the high speed and high endurance of DRAM combined with the non-volatility of Flash, all without the need for power backup. Learn More.
SMART's DDR4 NVDIMM have various unique performance benefits. With wide industry support, NVDIMMs provide a combination of low-latency, high performance with the near infinite endurance of DRAM with fast recovery in case of system power loss. With NVDIMMs, non-volatile memory is on the DRAM bus, which significantly optimizes data movement, delivering faster access. Another advantage of NVDIMMs is that software overhead is also eliminated and they can access direct memory to persistent memory vs. flash only.
SMART's DDR4 NVDIMMs feature proprietary SafeStor technology, the engine which initiates backup and restore operations from the host controller.
The NVDIMMs also support multiple command delivery options to trigger SafeStor backup during a host detected power outage and recovery event.
The SafeStore engine also employs multi-channel, fast NAND and high speed switching circuitry to provide robust backup and restore capability, all while functioning as a JEDEC standard DDR4 or DDR3 RDIMM during normal operation.
NVDIMM with Encryption
For financial industry and other applications where protecting data on the NVDIMM is critical
IEEE developed AES-XTS 256 standard is used to encrypt data
Key must be supplied by host during POST through the 12C interface to support backup with encryption
AES-XTS encryption may be enabled or disabled through an NVDIMM 12C register
NEWARK, CA, January 8, 2018 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… announced its NVDIMMs now feature Autonomous Self Refresh (ASR). SMART's patented ASR feature (patent number 9,779,016) allows SMART's NVDIMM to independently initiate a backup after an event which results in a system freeze or "hang" without power loss.
NEWARK, CA, August 8, 2017 — SMART Modular Technologies,… today announced that its DDR4 NVDIMMs are now available with encryption. With the addition of encryption, SMART's NVDIMMs are ideally suited for financial and other data-sensitive applications where protecting data on the NVDIMM is critical.
NEWARK, CA, March 21, 2017 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… today announced another expansion to its SMTL (SMART Memory Test Labs) services with the availability of NVDIMM validation test reports. These new NVDIMM test reports can be downloaded from SMART's SMTL webpage.
NEWARK, CA, August 9, 2016 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… today announced sample availability of its 32GB DDR4 NVDIMM-N, making it the highest density DDR4 NVDIMM-N module available in the industry. SMART will begin sampling at the end of August 2016.
NEWARK, CA, January 18, 2016 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… announces today the availability of its DDR4 NVDIMMs with the newly adopted JEDEC I2C command protocol. The JEDEC command protocol provides a standardized method for communication between host systems and NVDIMMs.
