Original Press Release

Cnex Labs Assigned Three Patents

Press release date: Oct 27, 2017

Providing dual memory access to non-volatile memory, NVMe controller for remote access of memory and I/O over Ethernet-type networks Providing dual memory access to non-volatile memory

CNEX Labs, Inc., San Jose, CA, has been assigned a patent (9,785,545) developed by Huang, Yiren Ronnie, San Jose, CA, for a "method and apparatus for providing dual memory access to non-volatile memory."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method and system for providing a dual memory access to a non-volatile memory device using expended memory addresses are disclosed. The digital processing system such as a computer includes a non-volatile memory device, a peripheral bus, and a digital processing unit. The non-volatile memory device such as a solid state drive can store data persistently. The peripheral bus, which can be a peripheral component interconnect express, (PCIe) bus, is used to support memory access to the non-volatile memory device. The digital processing unit such as a central processing unit, (CPU) is capable of accessing storage space in the non-volatile memory device in accordance with an extended memory address and offset.”

The patent application was filed on July 11, 2014 (14/329,578).

NVM express controller for remote access

of memory and I/O over ethernet-type networks

CNEX Labs, Inc., San Jose, CA, has been assigned a patent (9,785,356) developed by Huang, Yiren, San Jose, CA, for a "NVM express controller for remote access of memory and I/O over ethernet-type networks."

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method and system for enabling Non-Volatile Memory express, (NVMe) for accessing remote solid state drives, SSDs, (or other types of remote non-volatile memory) over the Ethernet or other networks. An extended NVMe controller is provided for enabling CPU to access remote non-volatile memory using NVMe protocol. The extended NVMe controller is implemented on one server for communication with other servers or non-volatile memory via Ethernet switch. The NVMe protocol is used over the Ethernet or similar networks by modifying it to provide a special NVM-over-Ethernet frame.”

The patent application was filed on September 2, 2015 (14/843,891).
