Solid-state drives that rely on PCI Express bus instead of Serial ATA interface are rather common nowadays, however, those SSDs are mostly oriented on consumers. Integrated Device Technology (IDT) and Micron Technology on Tuesday said they would team up to standardize PCIe-based SSDs for the server, storage and embedded markets.

“Through this alliance with IDT, we’re opening the doors for our customers to easily take advantage of the latest and most innovative flash technology, with features optimized for enterprise applications,” said Dean Klein, vice president of memory system development at Micron.

As part of this alliance, IDT and Micron will co-develop enterprise flash controllers with a PCIe host interface optimized for Micron’s flash devices and future generation RealSSD solid-state drives. Combining Micron’s experience in flash design and SSD development with IDT’s proficiency in PCIe solutions and memory interface products will enable devices to achieve lower latency, greater performance and new levels of storage integration.

“The existing IDT portfolio of memory interface products, PCIe bridges, switches and timing solutions with integrated Power Smart technology delivers industry leading  performance and reliability to enterprise class customers today, Our alliance with Micron, together with their enterprise flash products will, in the future, supply the industry with PCIe-based solid-state drive solutions with unparalleled performance and reliability,” said Mario Montana, vice president and general manager of the IDT enterprise computing division.
