Everspin’s NVMe Storage Accelerator mixes MRAM, UltraScale FPGA, delivers 1.5M

2018-03-30 10:03:01

Everspin, “The MRAM Company,” took an off-the-shelf Alpha Data ADM-PCIE-KU3 PCIe accelerator card, loaded 1Gbyte of MRAM DIMMs on the card, reprogrammed the on-board Kintex UltraScale KU060 FPGA to create an MRAM-based NVMe controller, and got…

From non-volatile, no-wearout-failure MRAM.
The folks at Alpha Data handed me a data sheet for the resulting Everspin NVMe card, the ES1GB-N02 Storage Accelerator, at this week’s SC16 conference in Salt Lake City. Here’s a scan of that data sheet:

Everspin makes MRAMs with DDR3 pin-level interfaces, but these non-volatile memory devices have unique timing requirements that differ from the DDR3 SDRAM standard. It’s therefore relatively easy to create an MRAM-based DDR3 SODIMM that snaps right into the existing SDRAM socket on the Alpha Data ADM-PCIE-KU3 card. Modify the SDRAM controller in the Kintex UltraScale FPGA to accommodate the MRAM’s timing requirements and—voila!—you’ve created an MRAM storage accelerator card.
