Persistent Memory - NVDIMM


DDR4 NVDIMM have unique performance benefits of low-latency and high performance. They also feature the near infinite endurance of DRAM with fast recovery in case of system power loss.

SafeStor™ Technology

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 SafeStor™ 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
