Phison Electronics (8299.TW), industry leader in flash controller and NAND solutions, will be displaying its latest flash technologies at COMPUTEX 2018 in Taipei, Taiwan. In the private showroom Phison will demonstrate the PS5012-E12 PCIe Gen 3x4 NVMe SSD controller, which is now available for customer sampling.
PS5012-E12, the ultra-high performance SSD controller, delivers best in class speeds over 3400 MB/s sequential read and over 3000 MB/s sequential write, with random 4K up to 600,000 IOPS read and 600,000 IOPS write performance. The controller supports up to 8TB and is available in the M.2, U.2, and AIC form factors.
With the E12 reaching close to the theoretical bandwidth of 4GB/s for PCIe Gen 3x4, it is the perfect solution for the gaming and high-end PC market. The innovative CoXprocessor 2.0 allows the E12 to gain an impressive advantage in sequential write performance that cannot be matched. It also allows for an unprecedented 600,000 IOPs random 4k read / write performance for a client SSD.
“The PS5012-E12 is our 2nd Generation PCIe Gen3x4 NVMe flagship controller.” said KS Pua, Chairman and CEO of Phison. “We incorporated our latest and greatest engineering technologies, from the CoXprocessor 2.0, LDPC 3.0, and our DSP (Digital Signal Processor) 2.0. It will enable our partners to provide the most suitable PCIe SSD to the gamers and PC enthusiast who seek for the highest performing systems. This is without a doubt, Phison’s best SSD controller to date.”
The controller utilizes an advanced 28nm process technology. Equipped with an ultra-compact and low-power LDPC 3.0 ECC engine designed for the latest 3D TLC and upcoming QLC flash memory. The controller can support up to 8 channel and 32 chip enables (CE).
PS5012-E12DC, the enterprise optimized solution of PS5012, is tuned for maximize endurance, low latency, and sustained performance consistency, targeting the enterprise data center and cloud environments. This enterprise controller is set for customer sampling in early Q3, 2018.
Phison will be showcasing its latest flash technologies at COMPUTEX Taipei June 5-9, 2018. In the showcase will be the E12 Client SSD, a preview of the upcoming PS3112-S12, a SATA III SSD controller, a UFS card that delivers SSD performance for mobile devices, and ThunderboltTM 3 external SSDs that now released by several branded partners. Also to address the emerging IoT and AI market trend, Phison will showcase an SD/microSD card solution made specifically for video surveillance, and launch its latest fingerprint-secured USB flash drive.
