Phison Announces PS3111-S11T, Industrial Grade SATA III Controller for Embedded and Client SSD Solutions

providers now have the luxury to reduce development efforts for embedded and client applications. The Phison PS3111-S11T will begin shipping on June of 2016.

Client SSD solutions can now take advantage of extended reliability features from the PS3111-S11T controller such as End to End Data Path Protection, SmartECC™, SmartZIPTM and SmartFlush™. Low Density Parity Check(LDPC) is another feature that can enhance lower P/E cycle NAND Flash to meet industry endurance requirements. Though performance has never been a key focus for industrial needs, the PS3111-S11T controller is a very capable high performing SATA III controller that can reach up to 550 MB/s Sequential Read, 500 MB/s Sequential Write, 91K Random Read IOPS and 86K Random Write IOPS.

Embedded SSD solutions has been an area Phison has focused on since 2008. The PS3111-S11T will continue to provide the same industrial traits such as extended temperature support from -40°C to 85°C and extended endurance NAND Flash support from 1Znm SLC that can achieve up to 730TBW and 36TBW with 1Znm MLC respectively, based on a 16GB capacity solution. Phison has a long history of supporting unique form factors ranging from uSSD, CFast, and MO-297 to mainstream M.2 and 2.5” for the embedded market.
