Mosaid and Novachips announce development of SSD controller
Joining the ranks of SandForce, Marvel, Intel, Link-A-Media Devices and Densbits, we can add another company to that list. Mosaid Technologies and Novachips of Korea today announced a joint development agreement to design and build an HLNAND (HyperLink NAND) Flash controller for SSDs. The SATA3 HLNAND Flash controller employs multi-cores and will be implemented in 40nm process technology and should become available in Q2 of 2013.
This controller is for HLNAND, which is a high-performance solution that combines memory technology with industry standard NAND flash cell technology to deliver an advanced feature set, reaching sustained I/O input-output bandwidths, which are according to the company, more than ten times higher than conventional flash. It does this by utilizing a point-to-point ring topology that achieves an extremely high level of signal integrity and significantly reduced loading.
