SMART will be showcasing its new MRAM solution in booth 627 at the Flash Memory Summit, August 8-10 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

NEWARK, CA, August 7, 2017SMART Modular Technologies, a subsidiary of SMART Global Holdings, Inc., (NASDAQ: SGH), and a leader in specialty memory, storage and hybrid solutions including memory modules, Flash memory cards and other solid state storage products, today announced its MRAM NVM Express Card. The PCIe HHHL (Half-Height Half-Length) form factor card is an MRAM based SSD that provides the high-speed and high-endurance associated with DRAMs, combined with the non-volatility of Flash without the need for power backup.

SMART has partnered with Everspin Technologies, a leading pioneer in MRAM technology development, to launch this new MRAM-based product. SMART’s new MRAM NVM Express Card allows OEMs to accelerate their enterprise compute and storage systems with high-speed access to power fail safe data and is available in a 1GB density for customer evaluation.

This new MRAM solution supports greater than 1.5 million IOPS and 6µs latency, based on 4K random read/write.

Applications where the NVMe PCIe card is designed to be implemented are storage acceleration and metadata caching; specifically servicing storage arrays, file systems, tiering and online transaction processing (OLTP) log caching, and remote shared persistent memory applications.

SMART is showcasing a live demonstration of its 1GB MRAM NVM Express Card at the 2017 Flash Memory Summit from August 8-10 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
