BIWIN America introduces 12x20mm e-MMC SSDs with on-chip controller, power-on boot, explicit sleep mode

BIWIN America has just announced a “single-chip” SSD device employing the e-MMC interface. The device is available in capacities from 2 to 64Gbytes, all packed into a 169-ball BGA package measuring 12x20x1mm. An integral SSD controller provides built-in BCH error correction, wear leveling, and bad-block management. A power-on boot feature allows an embedded host CPU to access boot code without an upper-level software driver and an explicit sleep command allows the host controller to take direct control of the SSD’s sleep mode to improve system power efficiency. These new BIWIN SSDs are based on MLC (multi-level cell) NAND Flash devices and run on 1.8 or 3.3V.
