  • Silicon Motion Announces World’s First Turnkey Merchant SATA 6GB/s SSD Controller Supporting 3D NAND

    Silicon Motion Technology Corporation is a world top provider of NAND flash controllers for SSD (Solid State Drives) is announcing that its broadly adopted SATA 6 GB/s SSD controller has been efficient to support commercial 3D NAND. 319635

    This represents the world’s first turnkey merchant SSD controller which supports 3D NAND from numerous vendors. The enhanced SM2246EN will add drive for the approval of the most price competitive high performance SSDs in the market. Turnkey SSD controller will allow SSD OEMs to start high performing SSDs featuring which is cost effective 3D NAND. 3D Power Loss Protection firmware technology defends against data loss in 3D NAND architectures. Beside the support of 2 TB capacity, its features include sequential read performance of up to 540 MB/s, write performance up to 410 MB/s, 80000 maximum random read IOPS and 75,000 maximum random write IOPS. SATA 6 GB/s SSD Controller supports SSD densities up to 2 TB, Toggle 2.0, ONFI 3.x and asynchronous NAND.SM2256 SSD Controller

    Key Features:

    • Ultra high sequential read performance of up to 540 MBps and sequential write of up to 410 MBps
    • It delivers up to 80000 random read IOPS and up to 75000 random write IOPS
    • It also supports SSD densities up to 2TB.SM-Silicon-Motion-Controller-Diagram
