New in Release 1.3
Internal SSD DRAM timings template is now available
During the creation of a simulation object it is now possible to select a DRAM timings template.
Added internal SSD DRAM bandwidth and power calculation
Depending on the selected DRAM timings template average bandwidth and power consumption are calculated.
Added dynamic WAF calculation during simulation
Given a target maximum WAF, the simulation engine is now able to dynamically calculate the actual WAF value depending on the FTL configuration.
Added NAND Flash Program Suspend feature
To be aligned with the new features introduced by NAND Flash memories, the simulation engine has been updated to support Program Suspend operations.
Fix & Improvements
Fixed FLT LBA placement
LBA placement operated by the internal FTL algorithm has been fixed to support dynamic FTL WAF calculation.
Improved simulation speed
The simulation engine responsible for the Non-Volatile Memories simulation has been updated to reduce memory footprint and increase simulation speed.
New memory timings management/creation
Thanks to the new user interface it is now possible to create an infinite amount of different memory timings specifying the bus interface speed and the latency of each single operation performed by the memory.
New Q&A support page
Need support? No problem, with the new Q&A support page you can directly contact the SSDExplorer developers and get all the support you need to run your design.
New user data cache parameter in controller architecture module
To boost the overall performance and endurance, new SSD architectures are provided with a DRAM buffer which can be used also to cache user data. NVRAM architectures exploits this approach. With the user data cache parameter you can simulate the behavior of these new architectures.
Changed User data context - Comprehensive disk latency evaluation
Thanks to the new data processing algorithm, it is possible to perform a complete breakdown of the latency curves of the disk. For both the read and the write latency the probability density function and the cumulative distribution function are provided.
Improved user data storage security
We do care that your design data are secure. With the new data storage backbone, user’s data are secured by a base64 encoded password, persisted for an unlimited amount of time, and always recoverable if required.
