SAN JOSE, Calif. and SEOUL, South Korea – Today SK hynix and Solidigm jointly introduced their first collaborative product, a new enterprise solid-state drive (eSSD), P5530. This limited release product highlights the emerging partnership between SK hynix and Solidigm, which formed three months ago when SK hynix acquired Intel’s NAND and SSD business.

The P5530 combines 128-layer 4D NAND flash from SK hynix with Solidigm’s SSD controller* and firmware that supports PCIe* Gen 4 interface. The product is available in capacities of 1TB, 2TB, and 4TB. With specific data centre use cases and targeted deployments in mind, SK hynix and Solidigm collaborated to maximise performance.

Since the introduction of Solidigm, the two firms have collaborated to build a forward-thinking approach and co-produce products while reinforcing shared values. SK hynix plans to improve its NAND flash business competitiveness to the same level as its DRAM business through its continued partnership and collaboration with Solidigm.

“With in-time demonstration of the collaborative product based on the combined competence of SK hynix and Solidigm, we aim to not only enhance our NAND flash business competitiveness but also speed up our ‘Inside America’ strategy,” said Kevin (Jongwon) Noh, President and Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) at SK hynix. “SK hynix and Solidigm will continue to partner in order to optimize both companies’ operations to create greater synergies.”

“In our early days of Solidigm, we’re pleased to be forming a strong collaboration with SK hynix. Together, we’re united in optimizing our products to provide unparalleled solutions for our customers. The P5530 is just the first example of what will come from our industry-defining partnership as we solidify our leadership across the NAND industry and create a new paradigm for solid state storage,” said Rob Crooke, Chief Executive Officer at Solidigm.

* Controller: A chip that assists the mainboard and the operating system of a computing system to recognize and utilize NAND flash memory as a storage device

* PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express): a high-speed input/output series interface used in the mainboard of digital devices; such interface, which is a technology to connect storage devices, can support more than 8GB of data transfer per second.
