Within the European Penta project, XSR-FMC, a new flash memory controller platform will be developed that will improve flash memory storage systems’ security, safety and reliability. Furthermore, these controllers will significantly reduce energy consumption, contributing to greater sustainability.
The XSR-FMC consortium includes design and manufacturing specialists in flash controllers, semiconductor design and security to address these complex requirements. The initial design will offer high reliability for an extended temperature range, long life–time, ultra-low power consumption, certifiable security (EAL3+), error correction and robustness to sudden power failures. This European collaboration will expand Europe’s commercial position in technology required for new generation of flash memories and strengthen its capabilities in secure data infrastructure and storage.
