PMC-Sierra, Inc. (PMC(R)) (Nasdaq:PMCS), the semiconductor and software solutions innovator transforming networks that connect, move and store big data, will sponsor and present at the 6th Annual UCSD Non-Volatile Memories Workshop, March 1-3, 2015, at the University of California in San Diego.

Stephen Bates, technical director in PMC’s Chief Strategy and Technology Office, will present two papers at the workshop: “Quality of Service Implications of the Error Correction Techniques in Solid State Drives,” and “Project Donard – Extending NVM Express Functionality to Enable PCIe Peer-2-Peer Performance.”

These papers will explore:

  • Combining NVM Express with Remote Direct Memory Access (RDMA) protocols such as iWARP and Infiniband to enable the efficient movement and storage of data around the data center.
  • How general purpose CPUs can be offloaded from the burden of data movement to allow them to focus on more revenue productive tasks such as analytics.
  • How novel media-management techniques can be used to improve the latency characteristics of SSDs.
