Marvell announces new PCIe SSD controller

Written by Slobodan Simic

Support for SATA Express, coming in Q4

Marvell has announced its newest PCI-Express solid state drive controller which will have support for SATA Express. The new Marvell 88SS1083 PCIe SSD controller is a dual-lane PCIe SSD controller which should offer bidirectional transfer rates of up to 1GB/s.

The new Marvell Marvell 88SS1083 PCIe controller also supports Separate RefClock with Independent SSC (SRIS), a feature which eliminates the need for an expensive shielded cable and is also fully compatible with the new SATA Express standard. Designed with 28nm manufacturing process, the new controller also minimizes the power consumption, supports the DevSleep and L1.2 PCIe low power state and can scale to support 15nm NAND flash.

According to Marvell, the new 88SS1083 controller is currently sampling to key customers and scheduled to be in mass production in Q4, 2014. The same controller will be showcased in action during Computex 2014 which kicks off on June 3rd, so hopefully we will see more about it.
