PS5019-E19

At FMS 2019, Phison shared the specs for its next generation of client SSD controllers. The PS5018-E18 high-end controller will be made using a FinFET process technology and promises to boost sequential read and write performance of drives to 7 GB/s. The PS5019-E19T mainstream controller will be a quick follow-up to the E13T that is currently in production but has not yet shipped in retail products. With its PS5016-E16 chip, Phison was the first to introduce client SSD controllers with a PCIe 4.0 x4 interface and is currently enjoying its unique position on the market. The PS5016-E16 is essentially an update of the PS5012-E12 — still featuring two Arm Cortex-R5 cores, eight NAND channels rated at 800 MT/s and made using TSMC’s 28 nm process...

Phison’s PS5016-E16 & PS5019-E19: The First PCIe 4.0 Client SSD Controllers

In the recent years SSD controllers and NAND flash memory have become so fast that the PCIe 3.0 x4 interface used by M.2 SSDs has become a bottleneck for...
