JMicron’s core technology falls into three major categories:
1. Analog and mixed-signal design:
- The in-house analog and mixed-signal technologies enable JMicron to deliver new technologies as early as possible after any standard specification is finalized.
2. Chip circuit design and process know-how:
- Based on the know-how of circuit design and process technology, JMicron is able to make better decisions about the product specifications that optimize JMicron's profitability, balancing a number of contradictory factors like power consumption, performance, and investment.
3. System knowledge and IPs:
- System knowledge is crucial for an IC design house in creating a product that can be applied to a variety of applications and can reach as large an economic scale as possible. JMicron has benefitted from long term, close relationships to major global system manufacturers such that JMicron can plan for the future’s data storage controllers.
For the past decade, JMicron has accumulated a great deal of high-speed interface technology that enables us to develop more advanced technology to meet the future's requirements. In 2014, JMicron will apply 55nm process technology to the USB3.1 device, which provides a 10Gbps data transfer rate--doubling that of the USB3.0. Moreover, JMicron will release SATA Express technology, which provides an 8Gbps data transmission rate between the host and the device, for high capacity storage devices in data center storage systems. JMicron will continue to upgrade its technology to the PCIe Gen2 x 4 lanes, which transfers data at a speed as high as 20Gbps in 2015
