Indilinx, Inc. is a formerly South Korean-based solid-state drive (SSD) controller manufacturer with current Business Headquarters in San Jose, California. They are a wholly owned subsidiary of OCZ Technology.
Indilinx's main product, as of Q3, 2009, is their Barefoot Flash controller hardware and software for solid state drives, which is used by many major SSD manufacturers.
Indilinx was established on October 19, 2006 by Bumsoo Kim, Guiyoung Lee, and Hyunmo Chung. Their first office was in Bundang, South Korea. In December 2006 Indilinx was certified as a venture company by the KIBO Technology Fund. In February 2007 they moved to their Advanced Technology Research Center in Seangnam City, South Korea.
In March 2011, OCZ acquired Indilinx Co., Ltd, a privately held fabless provider of flash controller silicon and software for SSDs. OCZ gained intellectual property including approximately 20 patents and patent applications related to the business, for approximately $32 million of OCZ common stock. Following its acquisition, Indilinx will continue to produce and supply its line of controller products to SSD manufacturers and OEMs on a global basis. The Indilinx controller business, and its 45 employees, will remain intact under the leadership of Bumsoo Kim, the founder and President of Indilinx, and Hyunmo Chung, Indilinx's Chief Technology Officer.
Indilinx Barefoot 
The Indilinx Barefoot is an ARM-based SATA controller used in numerous high performance SSDs. It has gained attention because drives based on this controller are approximately competitive with the Intel X25-M, while boasting generally lower prices and greater retail availability. TRIM support is available for almost all drives, with appropriate firmware released by respective drive manufacturers. Performance, cost, and features are broadly similar across all product lines that were tested in a comprehensive review by Anandtech, with most differences coming down to the speed of the flash chips chosen for each product line/batch.
