Considering Samsung 970 Pro 1 TB MZ-V7P1T0BW M.2 NVMe device...

Storage flash memory chips, controller chip and cache/DRAM chip are marked in the attached image.
What is the purpose of encircled chip with question mark?
I suppose something to do with regulating power and/or protecting other components from some feral electricty, but I can be way wrong.

Does anybody have info about:
The distance/thickness/height of each chip measured from bottom of PCB (including the bottom sticker) to chip's top (including the top label/sticker)?
a- Controller
b- Flash chips
d- Unknown component

Last question:
Considering I'm not going to use Data Migration software, for MS Windows 10 Pro x64, do I need Samsung NVMe Driver for anything?
