XES says FPGA controllers are better for delaying EOL
Editor:- December 8, 2014 - For SSD specifiers in military applications - the biggest pressure on BOM stability has always come from obsolete components.

XES made some interesting comments about this in a press release related to the SSDs used in the company's rugged flight proven secure SSD based storage modules.

XES says "An important feature of these high-density, high-performance storage products is that they use an FPGA-based storage controller.
