ECC Technologies, Inc. was founded and incorporated in 1990
to provide ECC (error correction) technology to electronic storage and
communications industries worldwide, The company is located in Minnetonka,
Minnesota, a suburb of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis-St. Paul.
We supply our customers with solutions not only to conventional error
correction needs, but also to the challenging needs of high-speed,
wide-bandwidth, fault-tolerant systems. These solutions can be in the form of
hardware or software designs, all customizable to fit customer's applications.
Other services we provide are assistance with error correction need analysis,
assistance with testing, and support throughout the implementation of a design.
ECC Technologies pioneered byte-parallel Reed-Solomon error correction
(PRS ECC) technology and was granted a patent on it May 19, 1998. The company
also pioneered two PRS RAID schemes, RAID X and RAID Y, which are capable of
emulating all other RAID schemes.
The company's founder, Mr. Philip E. White, has more than 20 years
experience in successfully applying advanced coding theory concepts to the
design of data storage and transmission products. He began his study of error
correcting codes in 1973 and has consulted with or received instruction from key
authorities in the world on the subject including Dr. Elwyn Berlekamp, Dr.
Robert McEliece, Dr. R.T. Chien, Dr. Edward Weldon and Mr. Neal Glover. He has
more than 25 years experience as an electronics design engineer in the research,
advanced concepts and product development divisions of Control Data, Seagate,
Unisys and Ciprico. He was the first person in the disk industry to implement a
powerful Reed-Solomon error correcting code in a disk controller.
