  • Publication number: 20210082875
    Abstract: A semiconductor die includes one or more semiconductor devices (e.g., memory array, processors), first and second banks of I/O ports arranged along one or more sides of the die, and a multiplexing circuit. The multiplexing circuit can be changed between a first state and a second state. In the first state the first bank of I/O ports is coupled to the semiconductor device(s) and the second bank of I/O ports is not coupled to the semiconductor device(s), and in the second state the first bank of I/O ports is not coupled to the semiconductor device(s) and the second bank of I/O ports is coupled to the semiconductor device(s). The state of the multiplexing circuit can be set, for example, by an on-die fuse circuit or an externally accessible select line. The semiconductor die can be included in a chip package, which can be included on a printed circuit board.

  • Publication number: 20200333859
    Abstract: A data storage system with a parallel array of dense memory cards and high airflow is described. In one example, a rack-mount enclosure has a horizontal plane board with memory connectors and external interfaces. Memory cards each have a connector to connect to a respective memory connector of the horizontal plane board, each memory card extending parallel to each other memory card from the front of the enclosure and extending orthogonally from the first side of the horizontal plane board. A power supply proximate the rear of the enclosure and the first side of the horizontal plane board provides power to the memory cards through the memory card connectors and has a fan to pull air from the front of the enclosure between the memory cards and to push air out the rear of the enclosure.

  • Patent number: 10530077
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure are directed towards a connector for a memory device in a computing system. In one embodiment, the connector includes a housing having a cavity to receive a mating end of a printed circuit board (PCB). The cavity includes first groups of first contacts arranged along an inside wall of the cavity, to engage with respective second groups of second contacts arranged around the mating end of the PCB. The cavity further includes a bar disposed inside the cavity to bridge the cavity, to receive a notch formed on the mating end of the PCB. A depth of the notch defines a number of the first groups of first contacts to be engaged with a respective number of the second groups of second contacts on the mating end of the PCB.

  • Publication number: 20190243571
    Abstract: Provided are an apparatus, system and method for offloading data transfer operations between source and destination storage devices to a hardware accelerator. The hardware accelerator includes a memory space and control logic to receive, from a host processor, a command descriptor indicating at least one source storage device having transfer data to transfer to at least one destination storage device and a computational task to perform on the transfer data. The control logic sends read commands to the at least one source storage device to read the transfer data to at least one read buffer in the memory space and performs the computational task on the transfer data to produce modified transfer data. The control logic writes the modified transfer data to at least one write buffer in the memory space to cause the modified transfer data to be written to the at least one destination storage device.

  • Patent number: 10237282
    Abstract: Methods and systems for Data Leak Prevention (DLP) in an enterprise network are provided. According to one embodiment, a network security device maintains a filter database containing multiple filtering rules. Each filtering rule specifies a watermark value, a set of network services for which the filtering rule is active and an action to be taken. Network traffic directed to a destination residing outside of an enterprise network, associated with a particular network service and containing a file is received. A watermark value embedded within the file is identified. When there exists a filtering rule specifying a matching watermark value and for which the filtering rule is active for the particular network service, the action specified by the filtering rule is performed.
