First SSD Using JMicron JMF612 Flash Controller Set to Appear Next Month
JMicron is a company that makes a lot of different controller chips, and their products have been used successfully for many years by companies like ASUS to add functionality to their products. However, the company has run into a rough patch due to random read and write latency problems with its SSD controllers.
The company came up with the JMF602B NAND flash controller to overcome some of those problems, but it was just a stopgap solution. They've been working on a new controller chip that would offer similar performance to the highly touted Barefoot controller made by Indilinx, but at a much lower cost. The new controller is also able to use 3xnm NAND flash, thus lowering the cost of SSDs using those smaller chips.
The first SSDs to use the new JMicron JMF612 flash controller were supposed to have been shown off at Computex in June. However, some issues came up that the company has been quietly resolving since then, and it appears that the chip is now in mass production.
