CFMS 2019 | Longsys: The key to the development of storage brand platform


At the recent concluded China Flash Market Summit 2019 (CFMS 2019), Longsys debuted many new products of high-end consumer storage brand Lexar and embedded storage brand FORESEE, creating a superior experience;

ag真人反水比例Mr. Cai Huabo, Chairman of Longsys, was once again invited to attend and serve as a guest speaker. In the speech entitled “Promising Chip-based Storage”, he talked about the current status of Chinese storage brands and how to break prejudice and achieve all-round development.

Where there is the market, there is development

Looking back at the brands and market share in China’s mobile phone market a decade ago, foreign brands represented by Samsung and NOKIA were dominant, with a comprehensive market share of upwards of 50%, while Chinese brands were nonexistent. By 2019, Chinese brands have a 90% market share, while the share of Samsung and NOKIA has shrunk to merely 1% or so. In a short span of ten years, China’s mobile phone manufacturers have started from scratch and risen rapidly, which shows that “market = development space” and demand leads the market.

China is the world’s largest storage consumption market. The chip import volume has been rising for ten consecutive years. In 2018, China imported 417.57 billion chips, a year-on-year increase of 10.8%. The import value reached US$312.058 billion, a year-on-year increase of 19.8%. But in this huge market, there are fatal problems in our storage products and storage brands: product supply fluctuating in line with the market, brand management and sales of products with a trade mindset, profits before quality, lack of innovation for products, brand logo as a tool of premium, lack of spirit and connotations… Brands are borne inevitably with “congenital defects” in such an environment.

 

Product is the soul of brand, quality is the lifeblood of brand

In the face of the market conditions and keen competition, enterprises can only survive and thrive through the quality of products. What Longsys is doing and will continue to do in the future is to develop innovative storage products with outstanding performance, providing the quality of products beyond the expectations of users and putting it on a par with international storage brands.

Longsys implements total quality management and carries out consumer, industrial and vehicle-grade management according to three categories of high-end storage, standard storage and flexible storage. A storage industrial park is built in Zhongshan to realize chip-level wafer and post-package modular testing. Lexar high-end storage data center is built. The same capacity cloud storage space is launched simultaneously with Lexar high-end storage products. We create quality factories and software factories, and show the results in product quality.

 

High-quality new product release, dual brands in the storage market

Lexar and FORESEE brands debuted many high-quality new products, showcasing Longsys’ technical strength and brand spirit for the visitors.

By breaking through the XQD limit, Lexar developed CFexpress independently. It has the same appearance but a read-write speed several times higher and a lower price. Moreover, Lexar PSSD ultra-low power consumption makes it an external storage for Android phones, and can be managed through Lexar APP. The new M.2 PCIe Gen4x4 SSD has a measured read speed of 7.5 GMByte/S, which is higher than the 6.5 GBMbyte/S on the market. It is the fastest consumer-level SSD product among PCIe Gen4x4 released so far.

Longsys’ Mini SDP shown at Huawei Connect


Speaking of solid-state drives, most people think of a square box, the common 2.5inch SSD. Compared to traditional mechanical hard drives, it has great improvement in terms of weight, size, noise, read-write speed, and power consumption.

1569375946(1)

Since the emergence of the world’s first solid-state drive in 1989, SSD is still hugely popular in the market, which demonstrates its value. Judging from the development of SSD in the past 20 years, its capacity and performance are on the rise, but there is no substantial breakthrough except addition of new interfaces (SATA/mSATA/PCIe/M.2).

 

ag真人反水比例Longsys Mini SDP (SATA Disk in Package) ingeniously integrates the main control, cache and flash memory into one, which is one-tenth the size of traditional SSD (33.4mm x 17.2mm x 1.23mm)!

1569375967(1)

Can you believe that it is a chunk, no, piece of SSD?

 

Longsys Mini SDP adopts the latest 3D TLC NAND Flash and SATA6Gbps interface, with capacities of 128GB/256GB/512GB, maximum sequential read-write speed of 560MB/s and 520MB/s, and maximum random read-write 90K.

1569376036(1)

The product incorporates dozens of patents, including 5 patents for invention, 11 design patents, and 13 utility models. It has obtained patents in the United States, South Korea, Japan, Canada, Brazil, mainland China, and Taiwan, and these are all valid.

But the advantage of Mini SDP is not limited to “mini” size. What Longsys does is to surpass your imagination!

 

1.It is shockproof and durable, protecting data security

In the existing SSD’s circuit modules, circuit components are generally soldered on the circuit board directly, and the connector and the outer casing are assembled, with circuit components directly exposed to the air. It easily gets damp and tainted with dust, compromising the performance of components. This causes the unstable function of SSD.

Longsys Mini SDP adopts packaged colloid structure, in which all electronic components soldered on the circuit board are packaged without gaps, offering better physical protection: dustproof, shockproof, moisture-resistant. It effectively protects data security, making SSD modules more stable and durable.

 

2.High performance, smooth data transmission, and low power consumption

Despite its small size, Longsys Mini SDP is versatile. Given that it has a standard SATA interface and 2.5-inch housing, it is compatible with all manner of desktops and laptops. It also becomes an external storage device through SATA to USB adapter. Its small size shall not be trifled with!

As can be seen from CrystalDiskInfo, Mini SDP supports NCQ, TRIM, and S.M.A.R.T like ordinary SSD.

cag真人反水比例CrystalDiskInfo

 

ag真人反水比例Mini SDP is a good performer in CrystalDiskMark software, with a read speed of 560MB/s and a write speed of 520MB/s.

DCrystalDiskMark

Moreover, SoC integrated package also greatly reduces Mini SDP’s power consumption, with a peak power consumption of only 2w, which is at least half of the traditional SSD, in addition to better heat dissipation performance.

 

 

  1. Shorter production cycle reduces production cost

 

To produce SSD in the traditional method, the control integrated circuit grains and the memory integrated circuit grains are packaged into the control chip and memory chip, which are then soldered to the circuit board together with all components. It has a long production cycle, and high costs.

Longsys Mini SDP adopts SoC integrated package, integrating all components such as NAND Flash chip, main control chip, power chip, reset chip and crystal oscillator clock chip, which vastly simplifies the manufacturing process of SSD. It has an opening which has the same size as the interface structure of standard SATA. In this way, SSD storage module can be directly installed into the standard SATA storage interface through the opening, thus simplifying assembly process. Production time of Mini SDP’s finished product is shorter than traditional SSD by 14 days, helping customers to deliver quickly and slashing production costs.

 

  1. Simple and fast installation, and better yield

The circuit modules of the traditional SSD must be assembled in factories due to technical requirements, resulting in inflexible production. However, if the assembly is made manually at the sales counter, the assembly quality cannot be guaranteed, compromising the production yield.

Thanks to the integrated package, assembly can be made by placing Longsys Mini SDP in the card slot and affixing it to a 2.5 inch SSD housing. This can also be made by non-professionals. Because of this, the assembly speed of Mini SDP is faster than general SSD by far. “Office is Factory” can be achieved easily, while the product quality can be effectively guaranteed.

 

ag真人反水比例At Huawei Connect held on September 18-20 and the Flash Summit on September 19, the technical staff performed the CKD operation on the Mini SDP, which is both surprising and curious for the visitors. We believe that Mini SDP is beyond the imagination of the industry due to its many advantages. Do you have a new understanding of SSD?
