Micron has released details about its new ClearNAND chips that have been designed with a built-in 24-bit error correction engine. The new development will allow a SSD drive’s host controller not have to concentrate on calculations and simply process the transfer of data.
Micron’s Standard ClearNAND ar available in sizes from 8 to 32 GB and are intended to remove the error correction code (ECC) burden from the host processor with minimal protocol changes compared to raw NAND.
As well as removing the load on the host processor the new ClearNAND products also provide new enterprise specific features to enable high-capacity designs, delivering improved performance and reliability.
Both Micron Standard ClearNAND and Enhanced ClearNAND products are available now.
