Press Releases

SANTA CLARA, CALIF. – July 31, 2019 – Phison Electronics, the industry leader in flash controller and NAND solutions, today announced that it will be showcasing its lineup of PCIe Gen4 SSD solutions, including the public debut of its power-conscious PS5019-E19T controller, at the Flash Memory Summit (FMS), August 6-8  in Booth No. 219 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California.

As the first-and-only company ready with PCIe Gen4x4 NVMe SSD solutions, Phison will demonstrate how its controllers push the boundaries of low power consumption and high performance for storage.  Shown publicly for the first time will be Phison’s E19T controller, which offers low power consciousness for mainstream drives, and delivers best-in-class power savings and reduces cooling needs in data centers.  Attendees will also see Phison’s recently released high-end PS5016-E16 controller, which independent third-party testing has confirmed speeds of 5GB/s sequential reads and 4.4GB/s sequential writes.  Additionally, Phison is offering a preview of the company’s next-generation Gen4x4 PS5018-E18 controller, an optimized design that better leverages the high-performance advantages provided by the PCIe 4.0 interface, further extending the company’s performance leadership in Gen4 SSDs.

The company will also be showcasing for the first time its PS5013-E13T 1113 BGA SSD at FMS.  It delivers all the advantages of flash technologies in the ultra-thin and ultra-compact 1113 BGA form factor. The E13T BGA SSD can reach up to 1.7GB/s sequential read, and 1.1GB/s sequential write, saturating the PCIe Gen 3x2 host interface using only 1.5W. With a power profile configurable to meet various application needs, the E13T BGA SSD will prolong the battery life of any embedded solution.

Phison’s booth will host demonstrations from technology partners Liqid and Cigent Technology Inc.  Powered by Phison’s E16 controller, Liqid’s industry-leading, ultra-high performance Gen4 NVMe, full-height, full-length add-in card model LQD4500 capable of 5 million IOPs and 24GB/s, will be showcased for attendees.  Liqid’s add-in card LQD4500 is available in capacities of up to 32TB.  Cigent will be demonstrating its Dynamic Data Defense Engine (D3E™) for Windows 10 that, when paired with Phison E12-based SSD, helps consumers, businesses and government agencies prevent the exfiltration of sensitive data when a system has been compromised.  The Phison E12 allows D3E to support "on the fly" firmware-based folder locking that can only be accessed with a step-up authentication when the threat level is elevated.

In addition to its not-to-be-missed exhibition of industry-leading solutions, Phison’s engineering and executive leadership has been invited to present their expertise at a number of panels and sessions during FMS, including:

•    Designing SSD Storage Systems for Low Latency without Large Outliers (August 6 at 3:40 p.m.)
•    Advanced Countermeasures: Integrating SDDs into Cyber-Security Defense (August 6 at 4:55 p.m.)
•    Error Handling Technologies for QLC-Based Storage (August 7 at 8:30 a.m.)
•    NMVe Gen-4 Thermal Management: Too Hot to Touch (August 7 at 3:20 p.m.)
•    Applying NVMe BGA in Embedded and Mobile Applications (August 7 at 3:20 p.m.)

“Whether in the audience at one of our speaker presentations or stopping by our booth for a demonstration of our next-generation technologies, FMS attendees will have an excellent opportunity to learn how Phison is leading the way in delivering high performance solutions that meet the ever-increasing needs of the data storage market,” said K.S. Pua, CEO of Phison Electronics.  “FMS is the ideal setting for us to demonstrate this leadership, as well as the perfect venue to publicly show our E19 for the first time.  We look forward to a great show.”

FMS is the world’s premier flash memory conference and exposition.  Now in its 14th year, FMS features the latest technology trends, the most innovative products, and the broadest coverage of this rapidly expanding market with demonstrations, speaking engagements and panels covering the latest storage technologies, such as NVMe, NVMe-oF, persistent memory, computational storage, 3D flash, 3D XPoint, neuromorphic computing, and new non-volatile memory.  Additional information about the event is available at

Phison will be hosting private meetings in the Silicon Valley Room at Techmart Center.  To schedule a time to meet with company representatives, interested parties can contact Michael Wu at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
