IntelliProp is a Colorado-based company founded in 1998 to
provide ASIC design and verification services for the storage industry. The
company is headquartered in Longmont, Colorado, strategically placed in the
heart of an area dominated by major storage manufacturers. The primary focus of
IntelliProp is to provide storage IP and products. Capitalizing on the 50+ years
of combined storage expertise of IntelliProp's engineers, IntelliProp provides a
wide-range of industry-proven storage products and interface cores. Our
customers are provided with the flexibility of integrating our products into a
multitude of FPGA families, along with using our engineers' extensive design and
verification experience to create their own ASICs. IntelliProp continues to gain
recognition as a leading expert in the storage industry, and actively
participates in committees for creating new and maintaining existing storage

Editor's comments re IntelliProp from
2011:- as you know my main interest is in trying to work out where companies fit
in the SSD market and the long term transition to solid state storage.
Hiren R. Patel the founder of IntelliProp told me - "I don't
think we fit into the category of
SSD manufacturers, nor do
we fit into SSD
controllers, but we offer a
SATA to SATA
RAID (level 0, striping) bridge."
This bridge allows SSD
manufacturers to connect several smaller SSDs (250GB, for example) into a larger
drive (like 1 or 2 TB SSD drive). It makes 2, 4 or 8 drives look and feel like
one single SSD drive. Another benefit is the increased performance and since
we are 6GHz SATA compliant, we saturate the interface throughput. Some of our
customers are already listed as SSD manufacturers on your website. We plan to
have a SAS RAID bridge available soon as well."
demonstrates Gen-Z memory controller|
|Editor:- November 13, 2017 -
demonstrations of 2 new controller IPs.
- A memory controller for the emerging Gen-Z memory interface.
Gen-Z IPA-PM185-CT "COBRA" controller combines DRAM and NAND and
sits on the Gen-Z fabric, not the memory bus. COBRA has the ability to support
byte addressability to DRAM cache and Block addressability to NAND flash.
COBRA-based Gen-Z memory modules provide low latency, persistent, shared memory
access to multiple processors and accelerators on the Gen-Z fabric supporting up
to 32GB of DRAM and 3TB of NAND.
- An NVMe 1.3 compatible host accelerator IP core.
IPC-NV164-HI for for Xilinx and Altera FPGAs accelerates performance by
off-loading command and completion queue management from the processor to
