Our Silicon Power S60 arrived in a blister pack.

On the back of the package, there is an image of a guy with wings made from SSDs.

Here we get our first look at the Silicon Power S60. The S stands for Slim, and that's in reference to the 7mm z-height case.

Inside, we found a tiny PCB that appears to be designed for embedded systems like casino slot machines, or other applications along those lines.

There are four NAND packages, a controller, and a single DRAM package.

The controller for this model is a Phison S8; it's about the same age as the SF-2281 from SandForce, but Phison was never able to get SandForce performance levels out of the design.

There are three codes on the NAND flash packages, and none of the codes appeared in Google search results. We believe this is Toshiba Toggle NAND, given Phison's close relationship with Toshiba, and history of using Toshiba flash, but we can't be sure.

The DRAM package is 512MB of DDR3-1600.
