La coreana MTron, azienda produttrice di Solid State Drive (SSD), ha reso noto, con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, la realizzazione di un nuovo controller SSD, basato su chip SLC e caratterizzato da prestazioni pari a circa il doppio di quelle esibite dalle soluzioni analoghe attualmente sul mercato, essendo caratterizzato da una velocità di lettura pari a 260 MB/s e una velocità di scrittura di 240MB/s.
Nell'ambito della stessa press release, MTron ha mostrato le immagini di altri tre nuovi prodotti: una SSD Express Card, una Mini PCI-E Card e Mtron XTM 7500. I primi due sono destinati all'utilizzo in abbinamento alle device mobile ed offrono una velocità di scrittura e lettura pari rispettivamente a 110Mb/s e 65Mb/s.
Il dispositivo Mtron XTM 7500 è invece ottimizzato per l'ambito militare ed è dunque particolarmente resistente agli urti ed alle variazioni di temperatura.

SEOUL, South Korea-- 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 "World IT Show 2008" 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, Mtron’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, "This 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."
In addition to the announcement of new controller, Mtron uncovered their new SSD products as well. The new Mtron’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 Mtron’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 NASA’s Anita Project. It will be available on the market in August.
