LSI storage products comprise the industry’s broadest portfolio of silicon and software solutions, with new innovations such as solid-state storage and 6Gb/s SAS Switch building on LSI's legacy of first-to-market traditions. The LSI family of SAS products includes RAID on Chip, host-bus adapters, RAID controller cards, and advanced software. Server and external storage vendors use these products to build industry-leading storage solutions. Our SoCs (system-on-a-chip) power hard disk drives and solid-state drives, enabling higher capacity points to accommodate ever-increasing amounts of data.
With LSI technology, our partners and customers get the performance and design flexibility they need to achieve outstanding speed, reliability and power savings improvements. We have a long-standing leadership position in all segments of the storage market including:
- Mobile, desktop, and enterprise disk drive electronics
- Custom silicon solutions for storage and SAN infrastructure devices
- Standard components and storage adapters for servers
As everyone and everything continues to connect to the digital world, the need for innovative networking solutions for enterprise and telecommunications networks continues to increase. LSI is addressing this challenge with a range of solutions that enable consumers and businesses to stay connected.
The LSI portfolio for wireless, enterprise, and wireline networking allows intelligence, control, and security to be distributed throughout the network. Our media processing family powers media gateways and accelerates rich media processing for applications such as enterprise video conferencing, and our multiservice processors allow for the migration of legacy networks to lower-cost Ethernet and IP-based networks.
Our multicore communication processor family provides an asymmetric multicore platform for applications such as wireless base stations, gateways, and data center control plan processing. Our multicore processors and accelerators deliver deterministic, low-latency performance with best-in-class:
- Traffic management
- Deep packet inspection
- Security processing
- Packet processing
As an ever-increasing amount of data moves on the global network, the need to have commonality and interoperability grows. A key to our success in our target markets is our deep and historic involvement with the industry’s most important standards associations and specifications, among them:
- The SCSI Trade Association
- Storage Networking Industry Association
- Multicore Association
- Open NAND Flash Interface Working Group
