  • Editor's past SSD oriented comments re Cypress from storage history:-

    November 2012 - among other things Cypress markets a range of fast non volatile RAM called nvSRAM which has been shipping for over 20 years and traditionally had been used in many RAID controllers.

    Since the hardware RAID controller market is nearing end of life many chip suppliers like Cypress have turned to the SSD market as an alternative fast growing outlet for solid state storage related technologies.

    In October 2012 - Cypress Semiconductor acquired Ramtron a maker of low capacity nvm called F-RAM (ferroelectric random access memory).

SSD sudden power loss vulnerability guide
Why should you care what happens in an SSD when the power goes down?

This important design feature - which barely rates a mention in most SSD datasheets and press releases - has a strong impact on SSD data integrity and operational reliability.

This article will help you understand why some SSDs which (work perfectly well in one type of application) might fail in others... even when the changes in the operational environment appear to be negligible.
