SSD Controller

Seagate rebranded a Phison PS5012-E12 controller; it uses eight flash channels and supports 3D TLC, QLC, and PCI-Express 3.0 x4. It is produced on a 28 nm process at TSMC Taiwan.

SSD Flash Chips

The four TLC flash chips are made by Toshiba, built using 64-layers on a 15 nanometer 3D NAND production process.

SSD DRAM Chip

Two SKhynix DDR4-2400 chips provide a total of 1 GB of fast DRAM storage for the controller to store the mapping tables in.
