Silicon Motion Announces World's First Merchant SD Controller Solutions Supporting Latest SD 6.0 Specifications

Jun 5, 2017
 

Silicon Motion Technology Corporation, a global leader in designing and marketing NAND flash controllers for solid-state storage devices, today introduced its new SD 6.0 controller solutions supporting SD Specification 6.0 and meeting the new A2 application performance rating with a minimum random read/write performance of 4,000/2,000 IOPS. Expandable memory cards with our new SD 6.0 controller will deliver ultra-high performance for users to run Android 6.x/7.x applications directly from SD cards as well as support bandwidth-intensive applications such as 4k video recording and playback and AR/VR.

Silicon Motion's SD 6.0 controller solutions support low voltage signaling to meet the needs of low-power SoCs and feature command queue, cache function and self-maintenance capabilities that enable high-performance, high-reliability and long endurance expandable memory cards - all critical features that are similar to those used in SSDs or embedded memory for managing large amounts of data. In addition, the SD 6.0 controller solutions support up to 2TB capacity and are offered in both commercial and industrial temperature grades, enabling SD 6.0 cards for high-performance and highly reliable storage for consumer, commercial, industrial and automotive devices.

"The use of expandable storage in mobile and industrial applications continues to be strong," said Nelson Duann, Senior Vice President of Product Marketing at Silicon Motion. "Most of today's Android smartphones and mobile computing devices allow users to run applications from removable cards directly. Silicon Motion's new SD 6.0 controllers extend the capabilities of expandable memory to provide a robust, high-capacity platform for running high-performance applications as well as bandwidth-intensive multimedia applications such as 4K video recording and playback."
