Eco짯sys짯tem col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on bet짯ween part짯ners unvei짯led for PCIe Gen5 to shape tech짯no짯lo짯gy and com짯pu짯te expe짯ri짯ence for the future in an always-con짯nec짯ted world.

Tai짯pei, Tai짯wan, May 23, 2022  Phison Elec짯tro짯nics Corp. (TPEX: 8299), a lea짯ding pro짯vi짯der of NAND con짯trol짯ler and flash sto짯rage solu짯ti짯ons, announ짯ced today a stra짯te짯gic col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on (video link: )  with AMD (NASDAQ: AMD) and Micron (NASDAQ: MU) to build a coope짯ra짯ti짯ve PCIe Gen5 eco짯sys짯tem of com짯pa짯ti짯ble pro짯ducts that ele짯va짯te the gam짯ing and crea짯tor expe짯ri짯ence. Phison셲 role includes deli짯ve짯ring a class-lea짯ding PCie Gen5 SSD con짯trol짯ler  PS5026-E26 ( ) that fea짯tures near짯ly a 2x per짯for짯mance increase over the pre짯vious gene짯ra짯ti짯on flag짯ship while adhe짯ring to the same power limi짯ta짯ti짯ons of the M.2 form factor. 

We are plea짯sed to announ짯ce our coope짯ra짯ti짯ve effort with Micron and AMD to advan짯ce the tech짯no짯lo짯gi짯cal deve짯lo짯p짯ment of PCIe Gen5 sto짯rage offe짯rings, as this vali짯da짯tes Phison셲 com짯mit짯ment to uphol짯ding cus짯to짯mer-cen짯tric values, said Leo Huang, Sr. Direc짯tor, Pro짯duct Mar짯ke짯ting, Phison. 쏷he E26 con짯trol짯ler enables gamers to com짯pe짯te at the hig짯hest level and helps con짯tent crea짯tors to maxi짯mi짯ze the over짯all sys짯tem per짯for짯mance to increase productivity. 

The need for high-speed sto짯rage has increased with the popu짯la짯ri짯ty of 5G Wire짯less avai짯la짯bi짯li짯ty world짯wi짯de. Glo짯bal mar짯kets inclu짯ding desk짯top PC, note짯books, gam짯ing con짯so짯les, cloud ser짯vers and even mobi짯le devices will bene짯fit from increased data trans짯fer rates and the band짯width available for mul짯ti짯task pur짯po짯ses. The eco짯sys짯tem con짯sis짯ting of AMDAM5 plat짯form, Phison셲 PS5026-E26 con짯trol짯ler, Micron셲 DDR5 DRAM and Repla짯ce짯ment Gate 3D NAND allow for plat짯form acce짯le짯ra짯ti짯on across the enti짯re sys짯tem to meet the requi짯re짯ments for today셲 always-con짯nec짯ted lifestyle. 

Micron셲 col짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with AMD and Phison is tar짯ge짯ted to deli짯ver the industry셲 most powerful sto짯rage offe짯ring and high-per짯for짯mance com짯pu짯ting expe짯ri짯ence available to con짯su짯mers, said Micron셲 Direc짯tor of Pro짯duct Line Manage짯ment, Jona짯than Weech. 쏷hrough its Cru짯cial bran짯ded pro짯ducts, Micron is focu짯sed on brin짯ging high-value NAND solu짯ti짯ons to PC enthu짯si짯asts. This uni짯que com짯bi짯na짯ti짯on of Micron NAND and Phison셲 Gen5 con짯trol짯ler, along with AMDAM5 plat짯form, will help acce짯le짯ra짯te the tran짯si짯ti짯on to PCIe Gen5 SSDs. 

Our goal is to deli짯ver an incre짯di짯ble uplift in band짯width to acce짯le짯ra짯te PC per짯for짯mance and user expe짯ri짯en짯ces, said Leah Schoeb, Sr. Mana짯ger, Sto짯rage and Memo짯ry, AMD. 쏞ol짯la짯bo짯ra짯ti짯on with Micron and Phison signi짯fies AMD셲 com짯mit짯ment to empower and ele짯va짯te gam짯ing and crea짯tor expe짯ri짯en짯ces of the future with AMD셲 new socket technology. 

Phison has an all-inclu짯si짯ve sche짯du짯le for Com짯putex 2022 with an exci짯ting full sca짯le pro짯duct line of sto짯rage solu짯ti짯ons. In addi짯ti짯on to show짯ing the flag짯ship PS5026-E26 PCIe Gen5 con짯trol짯ler, the com짯pa짯ny will also introduce:

  • The first PCIe Gen4 BGA SSD using the PS5021-E21T controller.
  • PS5027-E27T, a next gene짯ra짯ti짯on DRAM짯less PCIe Gen4 solu짯ti짯on desi짯gned to over짯co짯me the stick power requi짯re짯ments of mobi짯le com짯pu짯ting, will be dis짯cus짯sed for the first time.
  • E18DC, an M.2 form fac짯tor data cen짯ter solu짯ti짯on for diver짯se workloads inclu짯ding ser짯ver boot and read intensive.
  • PS8318, a UFS 3.1 pro짯blem sol짯ver tar짯ge짯ting a wide-ran짯ge of mar짯kets inclu짯ding VR, and mobile.
  • E21T, an ener짯gy effi짯ci짯ent indus짯tri짯al embedded Gen4 solu짯ti짯on desi짯gned to dri짯ve down cos짯ts while incre짯asing productivity
  • MPT Series of cus짯to짯mi짯zed auto짯mo짯ti짯ve sto짯rage products.
  • The World셲 First PCIe 5.0 Redri짯ver IC cer짯ti짯fied by PCI-SIG.
