Event Recap: Flash Memory Summit 2015 - Santa Clara, CA

Earlier this month, SATA-IO treated Flash Memory Summit 2015 attendees to a preview of the upcoming SATA specification enhancements, which will enable higher capacity, reliability and flexibility. SATA-IO representatives were on hand to answer questions about the new developments, including:

  • New transmitter specification to increase reliability in power intensive environments
  • Remote power cycling of SATA drives to simplify maintenance procedures
  • Shingled Magnetic Recording (SMR) support to facilitate high capacity drives
  • Added flexibility in the drive spin-up control and activity indicators to provide hosts with more choices

Further demonstrating the technology’s diverse portfolio of applications, members also provided a variety of SATA products at the booth:

  • 1.8” SATA SSD (Intel)
  • 2.5” SATA SSD (Intel)
  • mSATA SSD (Kingston)
  • SATA M.2 SSDs (Intel, Kingston, Micron)
  • SATA SSHDs (Seagate)
  • PCI Express 3.0 Protocol Analyzer for SATA Express (Teledyne LeCroy)

A special thank you to all of the members that contributed their time and products!
