Seagate (STX) is making an investment in DensBits, a developer of solid-state drive (SSD) controllers. The companies are also forming a partnership that will result in DensBits' controllers, which promise to make inexpensive TLC flash memory perform as well as more costly MLC flash, being used in Seagate's SSDs. Controller IP is a key way for SSDs to differentiate themselves - hence Apple's purchase of Anobit.. Marvell (MRVL) is the top independent supplier of SSD controllers.
