Etron Launches a New USB3.0 Dual-Channel Flash Drive Controller Chip, EV2669, Reaching Unprecedented Read and Write Speeds Above 260 and 235 Megabytes Per Second, Incorporating MLC Flash Memories, and Adopted by USB Flash Drive Suppliers

Etron Technology, Inc. (Taiwan GTSM: 5351) introduces a new flash drive controller, EV2669, of Etron’s USB3.0 Flash Drive Accelerator (FDA) series, in addition to its EV1669 product recently announced at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). EV2669 enables Etron’s USB3.0 flash drive customers to deliver unprecedented read and write speeds of 260 and 235 megabytes per second with MLC (Multiple Level Cell) flash memories without additional host drivers or software required. Moreover, EV2669 meets customer demands for large data storage by supporting flash memory capacities up to 128GB.

EV2669 utilizes Etron’s proprietary Flash Driver Accelerator technology to improve the overall performance of NAND flash memory access by leveraging advanced firmware algorithms and high-performance flash interface engines. It has been adopted in the products of top-tier USB3.0 flash drive makers, many of which are exhibited at the 2013 CES.

EV2669 employs a dual-channel design and advanced 72-bit Error Check and Correction (ECC) functionality for all MLC/ TLC NAND flash memories made of 2x nm or 1x nm advanced CMOS technologies from various flash memory manufacturers. It supports 4 CE (Channel Enable) pins per channel in a 64-QFN (9x9 mm) package or 8 CE pins per channel in a 88-QFN (10x10 mm) package, with up to a total of 16 CE pins.

Etron will display and demonstrate its cutting-edge EV2669 product along with its comprehensive series of USB3.0 controller ICs at Booth No. 31431 of USB TechZone and Booth No. 35114 in the South Hall 4 of the Las Vegas Convention Center at CES 2013 from January 8th to 12th.
