Flash Memory Summit 2014 - Micheal Wu from Phison stopped by to talk about their newest SSD controller. The quad-core PS3110 controller. The new controller features end-to-end data protection and supports DEVSLP. Chris Ramseyer took a look at the new controller in this article. The PS3110 supports TLC memory and up to 2TB of storage.
The PS3110 can be used in a multitude of applications from consumer, enthusiast, and even entry-level enterprise deployments. Phison is also working with M.2 designs for future implementations as well. The PCIe 3.0 x4 is due in Q1 for launch, and we should see working samples in Q4 of this year. All of the other competitors in this space are using PCIe 2.0, so 3.0 will be a big advantage for the Phison SSD. Stay tuned for more information here at TweakTown.
