Altera to Demonstrate NAND Flash, FPGA Accelerators, and Storage and Memory Virtualization at Flash Memory Summit 2015



Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) is attending the Flash Memory Summit at the Santa Clara Convention Center, August 10-13, 2015, (Booth #486) and is demonstrating a new NAND Flash reference design that extends the life of flash memory up to 7x. In addition, Altera is sharing how FPGAs can be used to accelerate functions in the data center, and to enable storage and memory virtualization. Altera computerand storage experts also are presenting multiple technology sessions and offering tutorials on high-performance flash applications.

The Altera NAND storage reference design is based on the Altera Arria® 10 SoC. It implements Mobiveil’s Universal NVM Express Controller (UNEX), a configurable controller for PCIe-based SSDs, and NVMdurance’s NAND flash optimization software. The reference design enables data center operators to leverage the most advanced 3D NAND technology without the long design cycles required with ASIC designs.

In addition, Altera is showcasing memory application development kits and cards that can addressrequirements for the following:

  • High speed, and for low latency IO interfaces and protocols
  • SSD controllers
  • OpenCL-based accelerators
  • Optical PCIe
  • Non-volatile DIMMs and memories.
