SanDisk chose the Marvell 88SS9183 controller for the A110. SanDisk writes their own firmware for Marvell controllers, which allows the company to keep control of firmware.

 

Physically the A110 has keys for both B and M sockets. The drive will fit in both Socket 2 and Socket 3, but in Socket 3 with PCIe x4 lanes, the drive will only use two lanes.

There are four NAND packages and a Hynix DRAM buffer.

We used a special SanDisk adapter to test the A110 on a desktop motherboard.
