VIA Labs introduced the dual-channel VL752 and the single-channel VL753, two new controllers for USB 3.0 flash drives. The VL752 promises to enable read speeds of up to 280MB/s and write speeds of up to 88MB/s. VIA Labs, Inc., a leading supplier of USB 3.0 integrated chip controllers, today announced its two latest USB 3.0 device controllers, the VIA VL752 and VIA VL753 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to NAND flash controllers. The VIA VL752 and VIA VL753 deliver enhanced performance using the latest NAND flash technologies including 19nm, 20nm and 21nm geometries and have been certified by the USB Implementers Forum (USB-IF) for SuperSpeed operation, ensuring high quality, seamless interoperability, and effortless backwards compatibility.
The two-channel the VIA VL752 and single-channel VIA VL753 offer data transfer speeds up to 280MB/s, flexible bad block management, support for the latest 200MHz DDR NAND Flash, and a robust ECC engine for greater data integrity. The package sizes from the previous generation of VIA Superspeed USB to NAND flash controllers have been reduced to a QFN68 8 x 8mm package for the VIA VL752 and a QFN48 6 x 6mm package for the VIA VL753 to enable the smallest form-factor designs. "The VIA VL752 and VIA VL753 USB to NAND Flash controllers give the best user experience by improving both performance and reliability,” said Gibson Chen, VP of Sales, VIA Labs, Inc. "With the smaller package sizes, it is even easier for manufacturers to integrate them into new product designs as well as the smallest modular form-factors." VIA Labs will be showcasing all of their latest USB 3.0 device controllers including the VIA VL752 and VIA VL753 in The USB Tech Zone at the upcoming 2013 International CES in Las Vegas from January 8-11. The USB Tech Zone will be located in LVCC, South Hall 3, Booth #31431.
