Computer memory giant, Micron, sent me a pre-production sample of their brand new M.2 NVMe solid-state drive. I tested it under PetaLinux on the PicoZed FMC Carrier Card V2 and the FPGA Drive adapter, and as expected, it passed all tests with flying colours. Although all of my previous tests were done with the Samsung VNAND 950 Pro SSD, the FPGA Drive adapter is designed to work with all M.2 PCIe compliant SSDs, and this test is confirmation of that.

As it’s pre-production, I can’t post photos of the actual SSD, so the image you see above is a stock image that they sent me. It’s not yet available for purchase, but I’ll be sure to update this post with a link when it does become available.
