Marvell?s newest SSD controller boasts an open, architecture that supports NAND Flash interface up to 200MB/s per channel. The 88SS9187 also offers a correction capability thanks to its ECC engine with Adaptive Read and Write Scheme and on-chip RAID functionality.
Performance figures include ~500MB/s of sequential write performance even at dirty drive conditions as well as "best-in-class" random read and write IOPS with "minimum over-provisioning" and "minimal performance degradation", according to Marvell.
The device also features low active and stand-by power consumption rates, meeting the requirements of the demanding Ultrabook computer market.
Other features of Marvell's third-generation SATA 6 Gb/s SSD controller include:
- Supports on-chip RAID technology for the NAND device with flexible firmware based algorithm to optimize retiring of defective NAND block, plane, die or device.
- Supports high-speed DDR3 DRAM interface with support for up to 1 G byte memory that permits implementation of performance optimized mapping algorithms.
- Maximum sequential read performance for a SATA 6G device.
