Digital signal processors
Texas Memory Systems, Inc. (TMS) is a privately held American corporation that designs and manufacturers solid-state disks (SSDs) and digital signal processors (DSPs). TMS was founded in 1978 and that same year introduced their first solid-state drive, followed by their first digital signal processor. In 2000 they introduced the RamSan line of SSDs which have evolved through new models available today. Based in Houston, Texas, they continue to supply these two product categories (directly as well as OEM and reseller partners) to large enterprise and government organizations.
TMS has been supplying SSD products to the market longer than any other company.
