OPENEDGES Extends Partnership with InnoGrit Corp for 6nm LPDDR5/4X/4 Memory Controller IP
Seoul, South Korea, October 16, 2023 --- OPENEDGES Technology, Inc. (OPENEDGES), a leading silicon IP provider, is pleased to announce the expansion of its collaboration with InnoGrit, a globally renowned supplier of solid-state drive (SSD) storage IC, since 2020. This new collaboration is to bring significant advancements in SSD technology, with a strategic focus on developing a cutting-edge, low-power, full-turnkey SSD controller and Computer Express Link (CXL).
The foundation of their partnership lies in OPENEDGES’ integrated ORBIT Memory Controller IP, OMC, renowned for its consistent delivery of exceptional performance, low power consumption, and high utilization of cutting-edge SSD solutions.
InnoGrit is widely recognized for its NAND Flash SSD controllers, known for exceptional performance, power efficiency, and security features, with its proprietary 4K LDPC technology, multi-level power management, and multiple data encryption and protection schemes. Supporting the latest NAND flash technology, InnoGrit’s SSD controllers can always stay tuned to the pace of the market. In 2020, InnoGrit first licensed OPENEDGES’ memory controller IP, OMC, for their SSD controller project designed for LPDDR4 and DDR4 standards using the advanced 12nm process at one of the world’s premier foundries.
In addition to the initial licensing agreement, OMC has been strategically selected by InnoGrit again this year for another significant project, aiming for next-generation controller applications. This new project targets 6nm LPDDR5/4X/4 at the world’s top foundry. The decision of InnoGrit in choosing OPENEDGES’ memory controller IP again this year demonstrates OPENEDGES IPs’ outstanding Power, Performance, and Area (PPA) attributes. Notably, OPENEDGES’ OMC has demonstrated a significant increase in utilization rate of around 15%, based on Innogrit’s combinational traffic patterns.
“OPENEDGES not only showcased excellent IP competitiveness but also excels in their dedication to customer support and remarkable flexibility in providing customization and configuration options,” said Dishi Lai, Co-Founder and Vice President of SoC Engineering at InnoGrit Corporation. “The strong technical support OPENEDGES offered us throughout our previous project has established them as our preferred partner, and we look forward to building on this successful ongoing collaboration.”
“Ensuring our customers’ satisfaction is always our primary goal,” said Sean Lee, CEO of OPENEDGES Technology. “We sincerely thank InnoGrit for acknowledging our dedication to delivering top-notch IP solutions and exceptional customer services. Their decision to choose OPENEDGES for their latest project reflects our firm commitment to providing competitive IP in the market.”
