The modem analogy is no coincidence. The engineers at DensBits come primarily from the communications industry, Pimentel said.
"Their implementation of SSD technology comes from the communications world," he said. "It's a different approach from the storage side. In communications, the ability to filter signals is important. DensBits engineers are able to bring much more reliable technology to SSD controllers."
DensBits' architecture also provides for a theoretical seven-times improvement in power efficiency compared to MLC technology, Pimentel said. "That's important for mobile devices and enterprise and cloud environments where power usage is a concern," he said.
