Arasan’s NAND Flash Controller IP and NV-DDR2 PHY achieve 533 MB/s enabling high performance storage devices.
May 30, 2014 -- Arasan Chip Systems, Inc. (“Arasan”), a leading provider of Total IP Solutions for mobile and storage applications, announces today the availability of ONFI 3.2 NAND Flash Controller IP & PHY, including ONFI 3.2 compatible NV-DDR2 I/O pads, providing 533 MB/s performance.
To meet the ever increasing demand of faster data transfer rates in SSD and mobile storage applications, the ONFI 3.2 specification enables performance of 533 MB/s using an NV-DDR2 interface. This represents a 33% performance boost from ONFI 3.1 with 400 MB/s interface.

Focusing on high performance and high reliability, Arasan’s ONFI 3.2 NAND Flash IP solution comprises of a high performance digital controller IP core, analog PHY, and hardened ONFI 3.2 compatible I/O pads supporting 1.8v and 3.3v operation. Compliant to the ONFI 3.2 electrical interface, Arasan’s IP core solution, delivered in RTL including synthesizable DLL and PLL, supports NV-DDR2 up to the specification’s full 533 MB/s. The ONFI 3.2 compatible I/O pads support NV-DDR2 operation at 1.8v. These pads differ from typical high speed DDR I/O pads in that they also support 3.3v I/O operation to enable backward compatibility with ONFI 2.3. The combined Controller IP, analog PHY and the I/O pads shortens time-to-market by reducing SoC designers’ development time otherwise spent on ensuring high speed signal integrity.
Arasan’s ONFI 3.2 NAND controller IP supports SLC, MLC, and TLC NAND Flash up to 1024Gb, synchronous and asynchronous NAND interfaces, page size up to 16KB, BCH ECC engine correcting 32-bit or more errors, and eight chip-selects. Arasan’s ONFI 3.2 NAND Flash Controller IP interfaces to the system’s AXI, AHB or OCP bus. Arasan also provides ONFI 3.2 software stack and drivers.
Arasan’s ONFI 3.2 NAND Controller Total Solution, including Controller IP core with DLL & PLL delivered in RTL, ONFI 3.2 I/O pads delivered in GDSII, and the optional ONFI 3.2 PHY with DLL & PLL delivered in GDSII are available now. For more information: http://arasan.com/products/nand-flash/
