Processor Solutions for Network Attached Storage


Network attached storage (NAS) allows users to share storage over a common network. NAS typically requires a higher level of processing performance to handle increased data bandwidth from wired/wireless communication links as well as RAID data traffic to and from off-chip ASICs.




  • High-performance ARC HS4x, HS5x for wired & wireless network communication (including WiFi)
  • Single- and multi-core processors for networking apps & RAID management

Power Management IC

  • Power- and area-efficient ARC EM4 for state machine calculations
  • Sensor & Control Subsystem integrates control & register interfaces such as ADC interface for battery monitoring

SD Card

  • ARC EM4 for power-critical, bus-powered apps like SD cards
  • Best-in-class code density reduces memory size & power
  • Fast interrupts and multiple register files for real-time response
  • Custom instruction extensions to add differentiating HW
