SMART 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.

SMART is showcasing its new Gen-Z NVRAM Media Controller Card in a PCIe HHHL (half-height half-length) form factor. SMART is supporting OEMs adopting the new Gen-Z high bandwidth, low latency interconnect protocol standard for handling big data. The protocol was developed to enable new solution architectures to deliver high levels of performance (high-bandwidth, low-latency), software efficiency, power optimizations, and industry agility. It operates at data rates up to 64Gb/s on two separate interfaces with less than 100ns load-to-use memory latency and incorporates 768GB of Flash and 16GB of DRAM. SMART's card showcases how the Gen-Z standard is designed to handle advance workloads, enabling data centric computing with scalable memory pools and resources for real-time analytics and in-memory applications. OEMs with plans to launch Gen-Z-enabled high-performance computing systems can use SMART's media storage controller card as a storage device in Gen-Z fabrics.

November 14-16, 2017

Super Computing 2017, Colorado Conference Center, Denver, CO. SMART will be showcasing its Gen-Z NVRAM Media Controller Card in a static display in Booth #273. A live demonstration can also be seen in the Gen-Z Consortium Booth #992.
