Denali's Databahn Flash Controller IP and PHY IP Delivers Performance Using ONFi2 NAND Devices for ASIC and FPGA Designs SUNNYVALE, Calif. --, Aug. 10, 2009
-- Denali, Inc., a world-leading provider of electronic design automation (EDA) software and intellectual property (IP), today announced that Micron Technology, Inc., has validated Denali's Databahn(TM) NAND Flash controller IP and FlashPoint(TM) products with its line of ONFI 2-based flash devices. Denali's products provide designers with a complete solution to maximize the performance capabilities of the new high-speed ONFi 2 devices from Micron, using either single-level cell (SLC) or multi-level cell (MLC) technology. Denali's Databahn NAND controllers and FlashPoint platform for ONFi 2 are configurable and programmable for optimal performance in a range of applications, from solid state drives (SSDs) and cache for consumer computing to enterprise server systems.
"The ONFI source-synchronous interface can be found in all of Micron's 34nm MLC and SLC NAND products, providing customers with a fast read and write throughput that breaks through the interface bottlenecks of traditional NAND, which is especially important for today's NAND-based computing applications, such as SSDs," said Kevin Kilbuck, Director of Strategic NAND marketing at Micron. "We believe Denali's NAND flash controller technology will provide a high-quality, hardware accelerated architecture to our customers, which leverages the features and functionality of our ONFI 2.1 devices."
Denali's Databahn NAND Flash controller utilizes advanced ECC algorithms, hardware code correction and multiple page size, plus supports legacy asynchronous flash devices and all ONFi modes. Coupled with a configurable PHY, the controller IP provides systems developers with a high-performance and interoperable product for deploying NAND Flash in next-generation system designs.

The FlashPoint platform is a complete system design with interface solutions to NAND Flash memory. The platform uses a unique design configuration engine that enables the system to be tuned for optimal performance with differentiating features for a range of products, including PC cache modules, SSDs, and ExpressCard(TM) devices.
"ONFi 2.0 is becoming a key requirement for many types of high-performance NAND Flash applications," said Robert Pierce, senior director of Flash Products at Denali Software. "We are pleased to be working with Micron to provide our mutual customers enabling technologies, such as our NAND Flash controller IP and PHY, to quickly deploy ONFi 2 technology in their product designs, thus minimizing time-consuming hardware and software development and maximizing the benefits of its performance features."About Denali Software
