BIWIN PCIe BGA SSD: A Scheme for Ideal Size and Superior Storage

Date:2021/12/27 Read:228

In pursuit of the extremely slim feature, traditional mobile intelligent terminals generally adopt eMMC/UFS embedded memory. Two-in-one computers, Ultrabooks and more are defined to production tools. Given that, eMMC is blamed for performance bottleneck, UFS is blamed for limited application platforms, and ordinary SSDs are blamed for large size and high power consumption. Meanwhile, these headaches have engendered the BGA SSD equipped with the PCIe standard interface.

Based on the technical experiences in the field of embedded memory chips and a profound understanding towards the market, in 2019, BIWIN rolled its E009 series PCIe Gen3 version of BGA SSD. This series features small size, large capacity, high performance, low power consumption and more. It has passed the Google Chromebook certification, compatible with the Chrome OS system of laptops, Intel Core, etc.

Annual Best Storage Product——BIWIN E009 PCIe BGA SSD

  1. Small size with large capacity:

Engineered with the 16-layer chip stack and more advanced sealing technology, the dimensions of BIWIN E009 can be confined to 11.5mm x 13mm, which is the same as eMMC/UFS. Besides its maximum capacity reaches 1TB.

  1. Exceptional performance with low power consumption:

Equipped with PCIe Gen3 interface and NVMe protocol, BIWIN E009 boasts the cross-platform compatibility. Its maximum read and write speeds reach 1750 MB/s and 1470 MB/s respectively. Designed with DRAM-less and ASPM dynamic power control module, the power consumption of its data read-write, and its idle status are 1.34 W, 1.44 W, and 0.32 W respectively.

  1. Decreased TCO:

It is incorporated with the core technologies, such as the study of storage medium property, the self-research firmware algorithm, the emulator memory, the multiple-chip stack packaging, the self-research chip test, and the testing algorithm. Relying on its own packaging and testing factory, it realizes the product life-cycle management, which ensures the high yield and the high reliability of its mass production, helping customers cut back on TCO.

Partaking of outstanding performance, BIWIN E009 won the Award of 2021 IC Design Achievement: Best Memory of the Year. It has already become the flagship product that paves the way for the PCIe BGA SSD, popularizing the ultra-slim intelligent terminal.

Keeps Abreast of Industry Development

Continuous Iteration of BIWIN PCIe BGA SSD

Driven by the Moore's Law, the semiconductor industry has undergone rapid iterations in its technology-cycle. As one of the leading independent brand semiconductor memory manufacturers, BIWIN has laid out a complete BGA SSD product line. From SATA III to PCIe Gen3 and PCIe Gen4, BIWIN BGA SSD series have witnessed upgrades and iterations according to the market demand and technology tendency.

Remark: The performance of products with different capacity are slightly different, and the actual product shall govern.

BIWIN plans to roll out the EP400 series Gen4 version of BGA SSD in April 2022. The maximum capacity of this single chip reaches 1 TB with the dimensions only being 11.5 x 13 x 1.25 mm. Its maximum sequential read and write speeds are up to 3500 MB/s and 3300 MB/s respectively. More importantly, it will provide better storage support for high-end smart phones, industrial computers, high-performance ultra-thin notebooks, drones, smart cars and other intelligent terminals.
