Among other things Ramaxel Technology
currently offers SSDs in these markets:-
mSATA SSDs, and fast
hadn't heard of Ramaxel's activities in the SSD market until recently. So I
asked a company spokesperson to tell me some more about their plans and their
enterprise SSD product architecture.
The company started investing
significant resources into SSD design 3 years ago and they say they would like
to achieve the same kind of leading supplier position within the SSD market
which they have already achieved in DRAM modules.
Re the internal
design of their
PCIe SSD (I've seen the datasheet but only an outline picture is on their
site at the present time). This product uses
architecture - with 8x small native PCIe SSD controllers inside which
connect to an onboard PCIe switch to bind them into one.
Re the RAM
cache flash architecture - the PCIe SSD is a
SSD. The ratio of flash memory to RAM cache is around 500ppm-1000ppm.
Selected mentions of Ramaxel from
June 2012 - a
in ChinaFlashMarket.com said that "Lenovo's recently-introduced
ultrabook models use SSDs developed by Ramaxel Technology and controllers
manufactured by SandForce."
