SEOUL, South Korea--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Mtron Storage Technology Co.,Ltd. (KOSDAQ:046320), a manufacturer of Solid State Drive (SSD) in South Korea, announced today that they were going to reveal new 260 MB/s controller technology at â€œWorld IT Show 2008â€ and OECD Ministerial Meeting on the Future of the Internet Economy in Seoul, Korea from June 18 to 20. Mtron also added that they would launch new SSD products equipped with the new controller technology in early 2009.
Improved from current 4-channel system with the maximum read/write speed of 130/120MB/s, Mtronâ€™s next generation controller technology provides an outstanding performance based on its 8-channel system with the maximum read/write speed of 260/240MB/s(based on SLC) and random write IOPS 8,000(4KB). It is twice faster than current controllers and the fastest speed in the current SSD market by far.
Steve Jeon, CEO of Mtron, said, â€œThis new controller provides not only improved performance, but also it provides high stability and reliability by minimizing errors and instability that a typical flash memory chip has. Based on the superb technology from our 1st generation controller, Mtron will lead the next generation controller industry with the latest technology.â€
In addition to the announcement of new controller, Mtron uncovered their new SSD products as well. The new Mtronâ€™s SSD products are Mtron SSD Express Card, Mini PCI-E Card for mobile devices, and Mtron XTM 7500 for highly specialized industries such as aviation, military, and medical industry.
Mtron SSD Express Card and Mini PCI-E Card deliver maximum read/write speed of 110/65MB/s, run its own software for OS installation and booting, and provide the best environment for the system running. Based on Mtronâ€™s innovative technology, these new products are not limited to the current HDD standard sizes, and therefore can be applied in various forms and sizes for different devices and usage.
Mtron SSD XTM 7500 provides an excellent stability and performance against extreme environment such as rapid temperature change from -45℃ to 90℃. In May, this product proved its strong protection against extreme temperature, shock, and vibration when it was chosen as the primary storage for NASAâ€™s Anita Project. It will be available on the market in August.
