Silicon Motion unveils latest generation FerriSSD BGA SSD

Silicon Motion Technology has introduced the next generation of FerriSSD NVMe PCIe Gen 4 x4 BGA SSDs.

This latest solution features support for i-Temp and integrates advanced IntelligentSeries technology, which ensures robust data integrity in extreme temperature environments that can meet the demands of industrial embedded systems and automotive applications.

The latest FerriSSD BGA SSD supports PCIe Gen 4 x4 and uses high density 3D NAND within a compact 16mm x 20mm BGA chip-scale package. With storage capacities up to 1TB, these SSDs utilise Silicon Motion's latest innovation to achieve high sequential read speeds exceeding 6GB/s and sequential write speeds exceeding 4GB/s.

The company’s proprietary IntelligentSeries data protection technology enhances reliability and performance through the use of encryption, data caching, data scanning and protect features, as well as supporting the i-Temp requirements of operating in extreme temperatures from -40°C to + 85°C.

This FerriSSD is intended for a broad range of applications and operating environments including in-car computing, thin client computing, point-of-sale terminals, multifunction printers, telecommunications equipment, factory automation tools, and a wide range of server applications.

Additional features of the FerriSSD solution includes:

  • Built-in SR-IOV capability, enabling virtual machines to share a single physical PCIe device, ensuring greater flexibility and scalability, while maintaining security.
  • Digitally signed firmware with eFuse, AES-128/256 encryption
  • TCG Opal v2.01 compliance
  • Hardware SHA384 with a True Random Number Generator (TRNG), offering the most robust data security
