Removing the controller from an SSD

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I was wondering what the would happen if I were to remove the controller from the SSD.

I understand that the controller plays a very important part. And it has the translation layer that maps everything on the drive, as well as other important functions.

My main question is; if I were to remove the controller would this cause any damage to the drive and would the drive still function. In that it would still be readable.

I have no singular make or model in mind. I am just asking generally.

Sorry if my question is a little strange.

Thanks.

The drive would be completely unreadable and unaccessable, as the controller chip includes the SATA interface and NAND interface hardware and software.

You may even let out some magic smoke out of other parts, but I think that is not likely to happen.
