Paper Title: Design Considerations for M.2 NVMe SSD Adapters

Paper Abstract: There is an insatiable need for faster, higher capacity solid-state storage in high-performance environments. NVMe provides a much faster and more efficient alternative to legacy standards for interfacing between host systems and peripheral devices. These characteristics combined with the emerging M.2 small form factor provide the ideal solution for next generation computing and storage systems. M.2 NVMe SSD PCIe adapters can provide higher performance, more flexibility, and better design quality for a wide variety of applications.
