The new SM2256 6-Gbits-per-second SATA SSD controller was shown by Milpitas, Calif.-based Silicon Motion for the first time at the Flash Memory Summit. The company said the SM2256 is the first complete ASIC and firmware solution supporting low-cost 1x/1y/1z nanometer triple-level cell (TLC) NAND from all the major NAND suppliers.

The SM2256 leverages Silicon Motion’s proprietary NANDXtend error-correcting code (ECC) technology for data protection and to enhance the endurance and retention of TLC NAND.
