Indilinx is a fabless semiconductor company and today it announced the development of its IDX22 that carries the product name Barefoot. Barefoot is a high-performance SSD controller that uses 90 nm process technology and delivers a read speed of 230 MB/s making it the fastest SSD controller on the market.

The SSD controller can support SSD drives a capacity of up to 512 GB that use multi-level cell NAND flash. Barefoot supports native SATA 2.0 (3 Gbps) interface and provides a maximum read speed of 230 MB/s and a maximum write speed of 170 MB/s with SLC NAND flash. Using MLC NAND flash, read speeds of 200 MB/s and write speeds of 160 MB/s are possible. The controller also features four independent operating channels and an external DRAM buffer.

"Such business model has a tremendous meaning to drive manufacturers and PC makers. Free from lock-up of exclusively dedicated SSD controller to a certain flash memory, they can have a buying power over flash vendors by segregating purchase of controller and flash memory. Also, our controller secures consistent performance regardless of a type of flash memory," said David Won, V.P. of Marketing. He also added, "Indilinx is now cooperating with global major systems and drive manufacturers for performance evaluation and business development, and will introduce its demo product at Flash Memory Summit, August 12-14, 2008 in Santa Clara, California. Mass production is scheduled in Q4 of this year."
