Chip Component Analysis

SSD Controller

The flash controller is made by Phison. The PS5012-E12S supports TLC, QLC and PCI-Express 3.0 x4. It uses eight flash channels and is produced on a 28 nm process at TSMC Taiwan. The main difference to the E12 without the "S" is that the E12S is physically smaller, works with half the DRAM capacity of the E12, and uses a metal case, which helps with thermals.

SSD Flash Chips

The four TLC flash chips are made by Toshiba, built using 96 layers.

SSD DRAM Chip

One Xi'an UnilC Semiconductor DDR3-1866L chip provides 512 MB of fast DRAM storage for the controller to store the mapping tables in. This is the second time we encounter DDR memory made by UnilC, a Chinese memory manufacturer who inherited its original DRAM IP from Infineon and Qimonda, but is now actively developing their own technologies.
