Speed up your Data I/O

High-speed data processing by advanced memory control technology

Flash storage

A monument to leading-edge hardware and software technology

Demand for flash storage is expanding every day. NAND flash memory mainly used in flash storage was invented in the 1980's. Since then, the range of applications has been spreading from memory cards and mobile devices to recently data centers and embedded systems such as automotive.

Hardware innovations such as miniaturization and 3D NAND have contributed to large capacity and low cost. In addition to these evolutions, it can be said that not only high-speed reading and writing storage performance, but also features such as low power consumption and high density can be said to be widely demanded in the era of rapid data expansion.

However, flash memory has various restrictions due to its hardware structure, and advanced software control is required to achieve both high reliability and the above performance.

Fixstars has been cultivating optimization and parallel processing technology that maximizes hardware resources since its establishment. Along with such advanced software technology, we will contribute to the evolution of flash storage.
