Processor Solutions for SSDs and Flash Controllers


Basic flash memory control functions such as wear-leveling, error correction, and freeing up unused memory are efficiently handled with low-power ARC® processors, while higher performance ARC processors support the multi-tasking and faster read/write requirements of SSDs.




  • Single & multi-core ARC HS for consumer and enterprise class SSD controllers
  • ARC EM4 for power-critical, bus-powered apps like SD cards
  • Faster data movement with ARC HS 64-bit/128-bit reads/writes
  • Best-in-class code density reduces memory size & power 
  • Custom instruction extensions to add differentiating hardware

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
