Indilinx prepping 600MB/s SSD controller

Posted on Friday, August 22 2008 @ 05:05:57 CEST by

Currently most solid state disks aren't significantly faster than the average hard drive which costs only a fraction of a SSD but Indilinx is working on a new 600MB/s controller that should change this.
Indilinx' new device, dubbed Barefoot, is based on 90-nm technology and provides read speeds of 230-MB/s. It supports capacities up to 512-GB with multi-level cell (MLC) NAND flash.

''Despite the prevalence of SATA 2 interface, previous SSDs didn't fully utilize its speed specs,'' according to the startup. ''But Barefoot is virtually the first controller which fully utilizes SATA 2 interface, lagging (hard-disk drives) about 3 years behind technically.''

Indilinx and Mosaid are preparing for a third-generation of controller for SATA 3 interface, which will provide 600MB/s. ''BareFoot is a second-generation controller for flash SSDs that meets the demanding performance requirements of PC and server applications,'' said Jin-Ki Kim, vice President of R&D for Mosaid, in a statement.
