KINGMAX to foray into the market for smart living

The past two years have witnessed the accelerated pace of the “smart revolution” that has swept the world. Having started out as a manufacturer of memory modules, KINGMAX has in fact devoted several years on research into smart living. With its R&D team having accurately captured the pulse of the market, KINGMAX has developed comprehensive core technologies and capabilities to stay in sync with the latest trends in the market.

With launch windows for relevant smart products scheduled for the year, KINGMAX is poised to establish its presence in the market!

The emergence of products for smart living stems from the increasing demands from consumers for new services and innovations in their lifestyle. Having preemptively identified the market trend, KINGMAX noticed that the issue of health hazards caused by poor indoor air quality has received growing concern over the years. The truth is, consumers now have heightened awareness for air quality, which has become a popular topic around the world in recent years. And as such, KINGMAX devoted all of its research and development energy and vertically integrated available resources that encompassed its bionic eye and electronic nose technologies to create the world’s first and only portable “AirQ Check – Air Quality Monitor” in an effort to safeguard the health and well-being of all consumers.

Featuring a physical design similar to a small USB thumb disk, “AirQ Check Mobile Health Device – Air Quality Monitor” comes with an ergonomic sliding cap. Requiring no power for operation, users can easily take the product wherever they go and simply connect it to their smart phones; by running its dedicated APP, users will be able to see in a glance whether the concentrations of carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds (i.e. formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, alcohol, carbon monoxide and so forth) in the indoor air have exceeded safe levels. With AirQ Check, you will reclaim the right to breathe in fresh air by having full knowledge of the air quality so that you and your care most can stay away from the hazards of air pollution!

AirQ Check will have its global market launch soon and can be purchased from designated retailers in different countries. KINGMAX will be launching more smart living products in the near future to bring more impressive innovations. Pay close attention to our fan page, where you will not only find the latest information from KINGMAX but also be able to take advantage of the various discounts and lucky draws that we will be organizing in the future.

Plextor Set to Unveil the Next Generation PCIe NVMe SSD

Solid State Drive (SSD) is now becoming more common and will rapidly replace the traditional mechanical Hard Disk Drive (HDD) in the near future. However, the supposed high performing SSD are hitting a significant performance wall due to the fact that majority of the SSD available on the market still uses SATA interface and AHCI controller interface standard that was created back then to handles the much slower traditional HDD.

Plextor PCIe NVMe SSD

While there are quite a number of high-end SSD that are designed to take the advantage of high speed the PCI Express (PCIe) interface, the use of ACHI controller interface specification on the controller design is still not suffice to take full advantage of the PCI Express interface. Manufacturers are now looking into NVMe controller interface specification to fully eliminate the existing bottleneck that limit the true potential of SSD.  

What is NVMe?
NVM Express (NVMe) or Non-Volatile Memory Express, is a standardized high performance host controller interface for PCIe SSDs that will ultimately deliver plug-and-play functionality for PCIe-connected SSDs on all platform.

The first NVMe prototype was seen back in 2007, where a NVMHCI working group led by Intel was formed that year to perform for research and development on the Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface which aims to remove the bandwidth limitations of SATA and shedding the AHCI communication protocol. As the group finalized PCI Express as the standardized connection interface, version 1.0 of the specification was released on 2011, followed by version 1.2 update on 2014.

Advantages of NVMe: Low Latency
When an AHCI controller executes a command, an un-cacheable register read consumes 2000 CPU cycles and there are 4 un-cacheable register reads per command. This translates into 8000 CPU cycles, or roughly 2.5 ┬Ás of latency per command. NVMe on the other hand, will not experience such delay as it will directly communicate with the CPU, thus, skipping all the unnecessary communication that causes delay. 

Advantages of NVMe: High Performance
Low latency isn't the only advantage you'll get from NVMe, as it also offers a much higher IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second). NVMe is capable of supporting up to 64K I/O queues, with each I/O queue supporting up to 64K commands, taking the full advantage of NAND Flash's parallel read and write. AHCI on the other hand, support only single I/O queue with up to 32 commands per queue, which leads to a much slower performance compared to NVMe.

NVMe - The Mainstream Storage Interface Standard
With Intel 9 / 100 series chipset now supports NVMe and Operating System such as Windows 8.1 Windows Server 2012 R2 or later that comes with built-in NVMe driver, SSD manufacturers are seen releasing consumer grade NVMe SSD products starting from last year as well as during Computex Taipei back in the month of June. In August, Plextor set to announce the availability of its consumer grade M8Pe series NVMe SSD.
NVMe are bound to become the future standard of mainstream storage interface, as well as the advancement of NAND flash technology and it's slowly manifests in various form of interfaces i.e M.2, PCIe, U.2, etc. As Market research institution predicted the possibilities of NVMe to replace AHCI as the new standard for mainstream SSD in 2017, and this marks the coming era of NVMe SSD.
