It wouldn't make much sense to make a new SATA 3Gb/s controller just for one product, or to create a new SATA 3Gb/s controller in general at this point.

Though these drives are designed as cache drive with the benefits of its SLC NAND flash memory, it may be hard to justify a 24 GB drive for $140 for this writer when you can easily find very capable larger capacity MLC NAND flash memory based drives for cheaper.
The Intel SSD 313 Series can be found at retailers around the price of $120 for the 20 GB version and $140 for the 24 GB version.
