Mtron Storage Technology a manufacturer of Solid State Drive (SSD) in South Korea, is going to reveal new 260 MB/s controller technology at "World IT Show 2008" and OECD Ministerial Meeting on the Future of the Internet Economy in Seoul, Korea from June 18 to 20.
Improved from current 4-channel system with the maximum read/write speed of 130/120MB/s, Mtron's next generation controller technology provides a very high performance based on its 8-channel system with the maximum read/write speed of 260/240MB/s(based on SLC) and random write IOPS 8,000(4KB). It is twice faster than current controllers and the fastest speed in the current SSD market by far.
The company plans to launch new SSD products equipped with the new controller technology in early 2009.
Steve Jeon, CEO of Mtron, said, "This new controller provides not only improved performance, but also it provides high stability and reliability by minimizing errors and instability that a typical flash memory chip has. Based on the superb technology from our 1st generation controller, Mtron will lead the next generation controller industry with the latest technology."
