Silicon Motion Technology Corporation launched the SM2322, the industry's fastest single-chip high-performance, low-power, and cost-effective solution for external portable SSDs, supporting up to 8TB of storage and achieves unparalleled data transfer rates of 20Gbps for storing and accessing large amounts of content seamlessly from AI smartphones, high-performance multimedia devices, and game consoles. With the increase of AI-capable devices, high density and high-performance storage solutions are becoming more critical to consumers. Portable SSDs powered by the new SM2322 controller are the only solution that offers low-cost, high-density and high-performance, making it the ideal solution for these applications.

Equipped with a USB 3.2 Gen 2x2 interface with 20Gb/s bandwidth and fully integrated hardware and software solution delivering peak sequential read and write transfer speeds of 2,100MB/s and 2,000MB/s, respectively, with up to 8TB capacity, SM2322 powered high-performance portable SSDs enable an ultra-compact and lightweight form factor. The SM2322 supports the ProRes format and MFi specification for iPhone users while also being compatible with Windows®, Android OS ?, and macOS®, making it an ideal high-density, high-performance portable storage solution for AI smartphones, HD content creators, and gaming enthusiasts who require high-density, high-performance portable storage. By eliminating the USB bridge chip required in traditional designs, the single-chip solution reduces both the Bill of Materials (BOM) costs and power consumption.

The new SM2322 upgrades external portable SSDs with higher performance and larger capacity using Silicon Motion's proprietary NANDXtend® 4KB LDPC error-correction technologies to improve the endurance and data retention of 3D TLC/QLC NAND. It provides comprehensive data integrity through SRAM ECC and end-to-end data path protection. In addition, the SM2322 delivers the highest level of data security by providing AES 256-bit encryption, fingerprint security, and full compliance with the Trusted Computing Group (TCG) Opal specification to meet the high-security standards.
