A NAND flash SSD memory controller supports 16 kB/page single-level cell (SLC) and multi-level cell (MLC) structures. Offering an effective access of 180 MB/s, the GBDriver RS4 Series with 3 Gb/s SATA from TDK Corp. configures SATA storage with a capacity ranging from 512 MB to 1 TB.
A read retry function ensures data reliability when using the latest MLC-type NAND flash memory, while an enhanced ECC function allows for the expansion of ECC to 71 bits per 512 byte block. A static-wear leveling algorithm averages the write and erase process over all blocks of the memory area, thus improving the lifespan of installed flash memory.
