10 years - "leading the way to the new storage frontier"


Scanimetrics, Inc., headquartered in Edmonton, Canada, has pioneered next-generation semiconductor technology which makes chips. Smaller. More room for more chips, thus more product features. Faster. Chip-to-chip communication is much faster. Greener. Less power is required, so systems run cooler and longer.

  • editor's comments:- February 2010 - Scanimetrics designs building blocks- in the form of HyperLink compatible multi chip modules - which simplify the process of interfacing high density NAND flash memory into fast SSD designs - such as products aimed at the PCIe SSD market.
high reliability flash SSDs  for embedded and high reliability servers
solid state disks - home page for SSDs since 1998
Over 150 SSD manufacturers listed
and profiled on our classic SSD page.
There are hundreds of articles about SSDs on
Here, below, are some examples.
  • RAM Cache Ratios in flash SSDs - it's important to know the underlying RAM cache architecture - even if you're happy with the R/W and IOPS performance.
  • 2010 - 1st Fizz in the SSD Bubble? - even the dogs in the street know this is going to be a multibillion dollar market. Greed will play as big a part as technology in shaping the SSD year ahead.
  • the pros and cons of using SSD ASAPs - auto tuning SSD appliances are a new category of SSD which entered the market in the 2nd half of 2009 to accelerate servers without needing human tune-ups. How can you tell if they are right for you? And how well do they work?
  • the Problem with Write IOPS - in flash SSDs - long established as a useful performance modeling metric - this article explains why some specs are exaggerated when applied to flash SSDs - or predict the wrong results for many common applications.
