SK hynix, Solidigm develop SSD for data centers

SK hynix has released its first chip jointly developed with Solidigm, the new name of Intel’s NAND Flash business, which was acquired by the chipmaker in 2021.  
SK hynix said Tuesday that it produced a sample of the solid-state drive (SSD) developed with San Jose, California-based Solidigm for use in data centers. Solidigm was born out of SK hynix’s purchase of Intel’s NAND unit.  
Called P5530, the collaborative product is based on SK hynix's 128-layer 4D NAND flash technology, powered by Solidigm's processing controller and a software interface called PCIe Gen 4.  
The drive comes in capacity options of 1 terabyte, 2 terabytes, and 4 terabytes.
SK hynix said it hoped the partnership with the U.S.-based company could boost its standing in the U.S. market.
"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 Noh Jong-won, president and Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of SK hynix in a statement.   
"SK hynix and Solidigm will continue to partner in order to optimize both companies' operations to create greater synergies."
Solidigm echoed those expectations.  
"Together, we're united in optimizing our products to provide unparalleled solutions for our customers,” said Rob Crooke, CEO of Solidigm. “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," he said.
