JMicron Introduces PCIe & SATA SSD Controllers at Computex 2014
JMicron has announced its JMF670H SATA Express SSD controller series, the new application of its USB3.0 to SATA controllers, as well as made its USB3.1 technology debut at Computex 2014.
The two recently introduced JMF670/JMF670H, two advanced SATA 6Gbps SSD controllers, are applied to an SSD storage module whose capacity up to 512GB, more than double of what the previous generation of SSD controller (JMF667H), supports. Capable of creating a more reliable and faster SSD module thanks to the new designs, the series can support Intel/Micron 16nm NAND and Toshiba/SanDisk A19nm NAND flash. Mass production of the JMF670/JMF670H will begin in July 2014.
On top of that, JMicron is also upgrading its SSD controller technology to PCIe from SATA this year. The company currently introduces the JMF810 and the JMF811 to meet a variety of SSD module requirements for data throughputs and form factors. The JMF810 installs a PCIe Gen2 2-lane and SATA 6Gbps combo interface, or a SATA Express port, for a system having an advanced requirement for a SATA Express data storage device. The JMF811 provides a PCIe Gen2 4-lane interface, making up a 20Gbps data through, for M.2 SSD applications on the ultrabook and the tablet especially. Moreover, the JMF810 and the JMF811 both are deliberately designed for TLC and 3D MLC NANDs so that data throughput can reach as high as 1.5Gbps in sequential read operation and 1.2Gbps in write.
To be released in the second half of this year, the JMS577 USB3.0 to SATA 6Gbps Bridge Controller has a faster data transmission rate, with its power dissipation reaching below 10mW in the suspend mode.
JMicron also exhibited its first USB3.1 product in JMicron’s suite at the Grand Hyatt during Computex 2014 to demonstrate the next generation of JMicron’s USB product technology on the back of its unique mixed signal process technology. The USB3.1 has the ability to deliver data rates of 10Gbps, double that of the USB3.0.
