The world’s first quad-port SSD centralizes vehicle storage, offering connectivity and flexibility for advanced automotive applications with data center-level capabilities.


Micron Technology has announced that it is sampling the automotive-grade 4150AT SSD, which is the world’s first quad-port SSD. This innovative drive can interface with up to four system-on-chips (SoCs) to centralize storage for software-defined intelligent vehicles. The 4150AT SSD incorporates features such as single-root input/output virtualization (SR-IOV), a PCIe Generation 4 interface, and a rugged automotive design, providing data centre-level flexibility and power for the automotive sector.

The SSD achieves enterprise-class speeds in consumer vehicles, capable of handling over 600,000 input/output operations per second (IOPS) for random reads and over 100,000 IOPS for writes. This facilitates efficient data management from multiple SoCs simultaneously, making it an ideal solution for various vehicle systems like advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), in-vehicle infotainment (IVI), and AI-enabled cabin experiences.

Some of the key features of the 4150AT SSD include:

  • Multi-port Capability: The first SSD with four ports enhances flexibility and reduces redundant data.
  • Virtualization: Supports up to 64 Virtual Machines (VMs); optimizes multi-host workloads and security.
  • Security: Isolates VM data, preventing leaks and reducing hacking risks.
  • Endurance Modes: Offers SLC and HE-SLC modes for greater durability.
  • Automotive Safety: Meets ASIL-B standards; withstands shocks, vibrations, and extreme temperatures.

“As storage requirements race to keep up with rich in-vehicle experiences featuring AI and advanced algorithms for higher levels of autonomous safety, this era demands a new paradigm for automotive storage to match,” said Michael Basca, Micron vice president of embedded products and systems. “Building on our collaboration with the innovators redefining next-generation automotive architectures, Micron has reimagined storage from the ground up to deliver the world’s first quad-port SSD — the Micron 4150AT — which provides the industry flexibility and horsepower to roll out the transformative technologies on the horizon.”
