SMART's DDR4 NVDIMMs feature proprietary SafeStor technology, the engine which initiates backup and restore operations from the host controller.
The NVDIMMs also support multiple command delivery options to trigger SafeStor backup during a host detected power outage and recovery event.
The SafeStore engine also employs multi-channel, fast NAND and high speed switching circuitry to provide robust backup and restore capability, all while functioning as a JEDEC standard DDR4 or DDR3 RDIMM during normal operation.
NVDIMM with Encryption
For financial industry and other applications where protecting data on the NVDIMM is critical
IEEE developed AES-XTS 256 standard is used to encrypt data
Key must be supplied by host during POST through the 12C interface to support backup with encryption
AES-XTS encryption may be enabled or disabled through an NVDIMM 12C register
NEWARK, CA, January 8, 2018 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… announced its NVDIMMs now feature Autonomous Self Refresh (ASR). SMART's patented ASR feature (patent number 9,779,016) allows SMART's NVDIMM to independently initiate a backup after an event which results in a system freeze or "hang" without power loss.
NEWARK, CA, August 8, 2017 — SMART Modular Technologies,… today announced that its DDR4 NVDIMMs are now available with encryption. With the addition of encryption, SMART's NVDIMMs are ideally suited for financial and other data-sensitive applications where protecting data on the NVDIMM is critical.
NEWARK, CA, March 21, 2017 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… today announced another expansion to its SMTL (SMART Memory Test Labs) services with the availability of NVDIMM validation test reports. These new NVDIMM test reports can be downloaded from SMART's SMTL webpage.
NEWARK, CA, August 9, 2016 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… today announced sample availability of its 32GB DDR4 NVDIMM-N, making it the highest density DDR4 NVDIMM-N module available in the industry. SMART will begin sampling at the end of August 2016.
NEWARK, CA, January 18, 2016 — SMART Modular Technologies, Inc.,… announces today the availability of its DDR4 NVDIMMs with the newly adopted JEDEC I2C command protocol. The JEDEC command protocol provides a standardized method for communication between host systems and NVDIMMs.
