"As the inventor of a wide range of leading storage technologies, we are very
proud of our innovation, leadership, and contribution to the advancement the
of storage industry. I am thrilled to see our highly differentiated and
advanced LDPC technology continue to raise the performance bar of robust
storage solutions. I believe our efforts will enable top global OEMs and
partners to accelerate the deployment of the fast growing SSD market," said
Weili Dai, President and Co-Founder of Marvell. "I am very thankful for our
dedicated and innovative engineering teams for once again delivering
game-changer storage solutions. At Marvell, it is our pride and long term
commitment to invest in the most innovative technologies to serve the storage
industry and offer the most reliable and secure cloud solutions. Our mission
is to drive innovation for better lives for all in the new era of 'Smart Life
and Smart Lifestyle'."

As process geometries continue to shrink and NAND flash technology migrates
from MLC (2-bit) to TLC (3-bit per cell), high reliability, uncompromised
performance and low power consumption are critical for the widespread adoption
of SSD. The game-changing Marvell 88SS1074 delivers all of these benefits to
SSD manufacturers, enabling the next generation of storage systems.

Marvell's NANDEdge advanced error correction LDPC technology has been evolving
through generations of in-house data integrity designs for hard disk drive and
networking applications. Compared to existing error correction technology,
NANDEdge provides more than three times the error correction capability and is
well suited for new TLC/MLC/SLC NAND flash memory up to 15nm process node. By
leveraging Marvell's NANDEdge technology, the 88SS1074 controller delivers
uncompromised performance while enabling superior NAND endurance and
reliability, which are crucial for TLC SSD to exceed storage requirements. The
88SS1074 also consumes less power than existing solutions, making it one of
the most power efficient SSD controllers on the market. Marvell is raising the
industry standard by powering the deployment of 3-bit NAND through highly
differentiated SSD controllers.

The 88SS1074 is currently sampling to leading customers. Marvell's
fifth-generation SATA SSD controllers are an ideal solution for the rapid
development of high-performance, low power SSD systems in a wide variety of
applications from mobile to enterprise and continue to be the product of
choice for leading OEMs. Marvell's latest SSD controller technologies will be
showcased at COMPUTEX, being held June 3-7, 2014, at the Grand Hyatt Taipei,
Residence One.

Key features of Marvell's new 88SS1074 SSD controller include:

  oSATA 6Gb/s
  oAdvanced 28nm CMOS process
  o15nm TLC/MLC/SLC and 3D NAND support
  oLow power support with integrated DEVSLP (Device Sleep)
  oONFI 3/Toggle 2 support at 400MT/s
  oSecurity - 256 AES encryption
