who's who in SSD? - by
editor - November 2014
Tanisys Technology - which for over a
decade had provided ATE test systems for
flash related modules -
recently entered the SSD market with integrated systems which can test a very
wide range of SSDs in various operating conditions in production and design
|Tanisys Technology - mentions in SSD market
In November 2002 -
Tanisys Technology -
which was already a leader in DRAM module test market joined the QBM (Quad
Band Memory) Alliance Program.
In August 2014 -
entered the SSD testing market - with a product line of burn-in chambers and
performance analyzers which included adapters and fixtures for many of the
popular SSD interfaces in the market.
|" There are 2 ways to
make memory work in space.
One is to invent better semiconductor processes to make the memory
cell less susceptible to direct radiation. ... these methods require redesign
of the memory chips and calls for new process technologies that are not widely
used for memory chips - which in itself presents a risk in production cost and
scalability when memory technology changes.
The second way is to use off-the-self memory parts.
Engineers have found that every memory chip exhibits slightly different
characteristic under radiation environment.
...Therefore, the most
economical way is to test-and-select. NASA decided to use Off-the-self parts
even in the International Space Station. This is obviously for cost reason and
to allow upgrade paths..."
