  • SSD Firmware Question

    Do SSDs have a chip that contains the firmware, or is it in a hidden area of the main flash storage area?

    Also, why do firmware updates destroy all of the data on the SSD (at least in every firmware update I've checked out)? One guess is that they all dealed with TRIM and/or GC, but I'm trying to find a white paper that clears this up one way or another and explains it in detail.
