Samsung has just announced a NAND flash storage device that is being described as the most advanced JEDEC-compliant flash memory storage in the world. Samsung claims that there is nothing which can match up to it's creation in terms of speed and capacity.
The Universal Flash Storage 2.0 standard is the latest and most advanced type of embedded memory interface all around the globe. Isn't surprising that Samsung already had it's hands on it. Samsung has declared that the firm has started mass production of these chips already.
These chips are capable of 19,000 input/output operations per second which matches up to the speeds of a solid state drive. Though the chip draws half the level of power of existing mobile memory.This UFS 2.0 memory chip will be available in 128GB, 64GB and 32GB versions.
Jee-ho Baek, Senior VP of Memory Marketing for Samsung said:
"With our mass production of ultra-fast UFS memory of the industry's highest capacity, we are making a significant contribution to enable a more advanced mobile experience for consumers. In the future, we will increase the proportion of high-capacity memory solutions, in leading the continued growth of the premium memory market."
The "Comman Queue" technology speeds up command execution through a serial interface, the data processing speed is considerable next to that of the 8-bit parallel-interface-based eMMC standard.
This advancement in mobile memory technology by Samsung will help them gallop a step ahead the rest. Their latest UFS 2.0 will enhance the speed of the devices ans well as consume low battery and the embedded package on package (ePoP) memory can be mounted directly over the logic chip to reduce physical size.
