ATP Introduces advancedMLC (aMLC) Technology

TAIPEI, -- ATP introduces its latest technology, advancedMLC, also known as aMLC. Developed by ATP, aMLC is an advanced firmware technology uniquely implemented onto ATP's NAND Flash products to vastly improve the endurance and performance of these storage devices while using mainstream MLC NAND to provide the best cost effective solution for any read/write intensive applications.

The Benchmarking of MLC, eMLC and aMLC Endurance and performance are the two critical factors for a NAND Flash storage device to meet the demanding industrial operating requirements. However, system and product designers often have to make compromises to fulfill the necessary criteria due to the inherent high cost of SLC NAND Flash components. To address this requirement, ATP introduces aMLC technology by implementing its unique firmware to manipulate four states of MLC into two states, which dramatically widens the disturbance margins among NAND Flash cells. In addition, aMLC can provide more than 13x (40K P/E) higher endurance than traditional MLC NAND, with write performance close to SLC. As such, aMLC is best suited for any write intensive application requiring competitive Drive-Write-Per-Day over Cost (DWPD/Cost).
