"Our NVME solution is available on Flexstar's Environmental, Burn-in and Bench-top systems and is downward compatible to PCIe Gen 2.0."

NVMe has been designed to optimise the performance of next generation SSDs. NVMe also enables variable device throughputs of up to 8Gb/s per lane through the specific PCIe lane architecture.

NVMe includes an extremely flexible command queue structure (64k queues with 64k entries each), metadata about SSD specific performance is built into the standard, support for the SATA TRIM and command to identify old data blocks that can be reclaimed by the device. It also executes commands in less than half the number of clock cycles when compared to other protocols.
