SST unveils high-performance ATA flash disk controller.

SST (NASDAQ:SSTI) recently announced a new stand-alone, high-performance ATA Flash Disk Controller that boasts a sustained write speed of up to 4 MBytes/sec., thereby allowing for faster and more user-friendly mass data storage products. SST's high-performance ATA Flash Disk Controller is the critical building block that enables OEM customers to provide highly reliable and flexible mass data storage products such as ATA-Disk Chips (ADC), ATA-Disk Modules (ADM), CompactFlash cards and other flash memory-based, fixed-disk replacement storage solutions. For consumer electronic devices, such as set-top boxes, MP3 players, digital cameras and thin-client systems, flash memory-based mass data storage continues to be a superior alternative to traditional hard disk drives because of its ruggedness, small form factor and lower power consumption.

SST also disclosed recently that it will provide its new high-performance ATA Flash Disk Controller to Apacer Technology Inc., a longtime strategic partner and customer. SST's high-performance ATA Flash Disk Controller will be used in Apacer's next-generation ADC and ADM products. Apacer's ADC and ADM products provide complete IDE hard disk drive functionality and compatibility, and are ideal for embedded mass data storage applications which require low power and high performance, yet at the same time, smaller and more reliable mass storage.

"We have always had a competitive edge with our line of mass storage products and SST's ATA controllers have played a key role in our success," said Lawrence Lo, vice president, Apacer Technology Inc. "With the fast sustained write speed of up to 4 MBytes/sec. achieved by SST's new controller, our customers will be able to increase the performance of their products and still benefit from the quality, reliability and support they have come to expect from Apacer."
