Indilinx was founded in 2006 by flash memory pioneers who
helped launch Samsung's enormously successful NAND flash memory business.
Indilinx members were responsible for starting and overseeing Samsung's NAND
flash software development center and its NAND flash product planning team, as
well as leading the development and launch of Samsung's first solid state drive
products, paving the way for a NAND flash revolution.
products and solutions comprise advanced solid state drive controllers, SSD
reference designs, and software, which enable the rapid development and
deployment of high performance solid state drives. Indilinx's technology powers
a wide range of storage solutions, from cost-sensitive consumer devices to
performance-optimized systems demanded by mission-critical enterprise
applications. Indilinx is headquartered in San Jose, California in Silicon
Valley and the company's primary R&D center is located in Bundang, South
Korea. For more information, please visit: http://www.indilinx.com

In August 2008 - Indilinx unveiled
its Barefoot SSD controller with 230MB/s read speed and 20,000 IOPS. Indilinx
and MOSAID co-presented their strategic cooperation in the development of
high-performing SSD controllers for the next generation DDR type flash memory.
The SATA 3 interface will provide 600MB/s.
In October 2009 -
in behardware.com said Indilinx's SATA 3 SSD SoC may not ship till
2011 - a year later than originally planned.
