The EM3255 is a USB Flash controller focusing on embedded/industrial application (eUSB) usage. It combines high compatibility and performance to support single-channel SLC and MLC NAND Flash memory in a single chip. The EM3255 complies with USB2.0 power specifications for bus-powered devices. The EM3255 controller delivers an extremely reliable, high data transfer rate through the BCH ECC engine to reduce read/write disturbance errors. Combining a 5-3.3V regulator and power-on-rest feature, the EM3255 maximize efficiency and reduces overall BOM costs. The EM3255 is available in 48-pin LQFP packages.
Silicon Motion Technology Corporation is the global leader in developing NAND flash controllers for SSDs and other solid state storage devices.
Silicon Motion is a fabless manufacturer that specialises in developing controller ICs for solid state storage devices such as SSDs, eMMCs and other embedded flash applications, but also for removable storage products such as USB memory. Silicon Motion also manufactures low-power graphics controllers for industrial applications. Here, long-term availability and good support are important features.
Silicon Motion were founded in 1995 in San Jose, California and operate from corporate ofﬁces in Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US.
