Realtek Introduces RTL9220DP: Powering High-Speed Storage for Next-Gen Devices and Duplicators

Realtek Semiconductor Corporation, a leading network and multimedia IC provider, has announced the release of the RTL9220DP high-performance storage solution. This single chip, housed in a compact 10mmx10mm 88-pin QFN package, offers a USB3.2 Gen2x2 (20Gbps) interface and serves as a bridge for dual-port solid-state drives. The RTL9220DP supports both PCIe 3.0×4 lanes NVMe1.3 and SATA Gen3 (6Gbps) SSD specifications, making it suitable for use in various applications such as portable high-speed SSD duplicators, flash drives, enclosures, USB dual-port card readers, and docking stations. It also features support for the Type-C connector.

The storage solution provides several key features to address users’ advanced data storage needs. It supports JBOD (Just a Bunch of Disks), RAID0 (striping for improved performance), and RAID1 (mirroring for data protection). In USB-to-SATA mode, it offers SATA3 support with a bandwidth of up to 6Gbps per port, maintaining backward compatibility with SATA Gen2/Gen1.

Additionally, the RTL9220DP incorporates power management features, including a dynamically switching power state with NVMe/SATA/USB power management in low-power mode. It employs an algorithm that optimizes power consumption and performance balance. The chip also includes built-in Addressable RGB functionality, enabling customized LEDs without the need for extra components. This feature allows for high-quality visual effects, such as breathing lights and magic color LED modes, enhancing the aesthetics of external storage devices.

Realtek emphasizes the device’s eco-friendly and energy-efficient nature. With Active State Power Management (ASPM), NVMe/AHCI dynamic energy saving, and SATA automatic power mode detection technology, overall power consumption is reduced, resulting in a more reliable and environmentally friendly system. Realtek’s Vice President and Spokesman, Yee-Wei Huang, highlights the RTL9220DP’s contribution to consumer productivity and the pursuit of a higher-efficiency lifestyle.

Realtek Semiconductor Corporation is globally recognized for its IC products, including those designed for connected media, communications networks, computer peripherals, and multimedia applications. The company offers a diverse range of solutions, such as Ethernet controllers, wireless LAN controllers, Bluetooth devices, audio solutions, IoT solutions, and more. With expertise in RF, analog, and mixed signal circuits, Realtek delivers comprehensive, high-performance, and energy-efficient solutions to meet market demands.
