R5U230 Specifications

The R5U230 is a multi-function PCI Express controller that integrates 4 PCI Express functions (1-lane PCI Express to an IEEE1394, an SD/MMC Card, a Memory Stick and an xD Picture Card) into a single chip.
The R5U230 supports most Flash Memory Cards currently in the market, and the R5U230 allows flexibility for system designers to configure systems to interface with multiple Flash Memory Cards. The R5U230 offers the low power consumption at the low power state.

R5U230:QFN0606-48 (size=6x6mm, pitch=0.4mm, t=0.9mm)
R5U230 Support Type

Low Power Consumption

Supporting ASPM function and CLKREQ# enables the reducetion of the power consumption.

Internal Regulator & Power-Switch

  • Integrated regulator allows 3.3V single power operation.
  • The integrated MOSFET switch with the short circuit protection allows direct power control for all of Flash Memory card, and that results in a reduction of BOM (bill of material) cost.

Internal PLL

The optimum frequency for each medias, supplied by an internal PLL, provides a high-performance.

Small Package

  • Small 48-pin QFN package provides space saving feature.
  • The R5U230 is ideal for devices that require miniaturization.


  • Personal computers (laptop, palmtop, note-book, stylus-operated, or tablet PC)
  • Docking stations
  • Car navigation systems
  • PDA
  • Express Card
  • Media card readers, etc.
