Mtron unveiled a new SSD controller technology that supports read speeds of up to 260MB/s and write speeds of up to 240MB/s. The first solid state disks equipped with this technology will be available in early 2009.
Improved from current 4-channel system with the maximum read/write speed of 130/120MB/s, Mtron’s next generation controller technology provides an outstanding performance based on its 8-channel system with the maximum read/write speed of 260/240MB/s(based on SLC) and random write IOPS 8,000(4KB). It is twice faster than current controllers and the fastest speed in the current SSD market by far.
Steve Jeon, CEO of Mtron, said, “This new controller provides not only improved performance, but also it provides high stability and reliability by minimizing errors and instability that a typical flash memory chip has. Based on the superb technology from our 1st generation controller, Mtron will lead the next generation controller industry with the latest technology.”
