Written by Nick Farrell

Packed with embedded processor goodness

Marvell announced mass deployment of the Marvel 88SS9187 SATA controller fueled by high performance embedded processor technology. The 88SS9187 features a six gigabit-per-second (Gb/s) SATA Revision 3.1 compliant host interface optimised for the fast-growing solid state drive (SSD) sector.

It is being targeted for the consumer, mobile and enterprise markets. A significant number of high-profile SSD manufacturers are set to deploy Marvell’s newest solution immediately, with additional partners expected to integrate 88SS9187 implementations later this year.

Marvell’s newest SSD controller boasts an open architecture that supports industry-standard, high-speed NAND Flash interface up to 200MB/s per channel. The 88SS9187 also has new correction capability thanks to its high performance ECC engine with Adaptive Read and Write Scheme and on-chip RAID functionality to allow use of the latest generation of NAND Flash devices in the fast-growing SSD markets.

Alan Armstrong, vice president of Marketing for the Storage Business Group at Marvell Semiconductor said that the technology allowed SSD manufacturers to fully customise their products to meet specific customer demands and distinguish their products based on price, performance, power and functionality.
