Silicon Motion MonTitan PCIe Gen5x4 User Programmable Solid State Drive

This week, Silicon Motion unveiled its latest creation, the MonTitan PCIe Gen5x4 UserProgrammable Solid State Drive, featuring an allnew customdesigned ASIC and FW architecture. MonTitan was created to provide users with a high performance PCIe Gen5 programmable platform using the 3rd generation Silicon Motion NVMe controller.

The MonTitan SM8366 ASIC is a dualport PCIe Gen5 x4 NVMe controller with 16 lanes supporting speeds up to 2400MT/s. The SM8366 provides fast sequential (>14Gb/s) and random (>3.0M IOPS) 4K solid state storage and includes a scalable single/dual channel 40bit DDR43200 / DDR54800 DRAM interface.

MonTitan SSD uses patented Silicon Motion technology:

– PerformaShape provides ASICbased QoS sets using hardware isolation to maximize bandwidth performance while maximizing userdefined individual performance elements (QOS, latency, RR/RW, power).
– NANDCommand maximizes enterprise nextgeneration NAND geometry performance with exceptional LDPC error correction and reliability improvements for QLC and beyond.

“SSD storage solutions are evolving to meet new challenges in the data center that require changes in storage platforms and operating models,” said Nelson Duanne, Silicon Motion’s senior vice president of marketing and research and development. “Our MonTitan solid state solution is an innovative PCIe Gen5 solid state platform designed to meet the unique needs of today’s data centers while providing the flexibility and programmability to meet future evolving standards.”

“Silicon Motion’s launch of the MonTitan SSD solution platform provides an exciting development opportunity with its layered FW stack and flexible architecture to enable applicationcentric solutions such as QLC and ZNS SSDs. Alibaba is interested in further evaluating these solutions,” said Feng Zhu, director of design and architecture for Alibaba Cloud. The highperformance SM8366 with the MonTitan platform unleashes the potential once limited by SSD storage architecture, delivering highly integrated, flexible solutions that set a new standard for data center SSD design.”

“Nextgeneration technologies such as PCIe 5.0, the OCP Datacenter NVMe SSD specification, and E1.S are essential for hyperscale to deliver performance, temperature, and control at scale. The Silicon Motion MonTitan platform supports PCIe 5.0, OCP Datacenter NVMe 2.0 and E1.S SSD specification to meet next generation hyperscale requirements,” said Ross Stenforth, systems engineer at Meta.
