NVMe PCIe Gen3x4 SSD Controllers

Enabling SSDs with optimal power and low-latency for cloud and enterprise data centers

NVMe Chipset Solutions

 

The Marvell® 88SS1098 and 88SS1088 are PCIe Gen3x4 SSD controllers supporting single and dual port functionality, the NVMe 1.3 standard and emerging open channel architectures.  Both controllers are powered by Marvell Gen4 NANDEdge™ LDPC error correction technology, providing support for 3D NAND TLC and QLC technologies, extending SSD lifetime while maintaining best-in-class latency and performance consistency. Both controllers have an innovative processor architecture to enable up to 3.6GB/s of throughput, up to 700k of random IOPS, up to 16 NAND channels and up to 16GB DRAM supported.  Both can support industry-leading TB capacities (16TB for 88SS1088 and 8TB for 88SS1098) and are optimized for power, performance and cost enabling a range of SSD solutions including: M.2, NGSFF, U.2, PCIe add-in-cards, EDSFF and custom.
