Whether its boosting performance for 5G applications or meeting complex automotive storage demands, UFS excels when ultra-high speed read/write performance, low power consumption and shortened application launch times are needed. For these reasons (and more), designers of mobile devices are increasingly turning to UFS to create an improved experience for users. In fact, when overall UFS and e-MMC demand across all applications worldwide in total GB is combined, UFS is expected to account for roughly 70% of the GB demand this year, and 85% of the GB demand by 2024, according to Forward Insights.
Will UFS replace e-MMC entirely? What performance advantages does UFS bring? Design engineers creating the latest mobile applications often have UFS-related questions for us, so we took the ones that most frequently come up and worked with Electronic Design to develop an FAQ. In it, we take a closer look at the new features, advantages and 5G-capable applications of modern UFS.
The fact that UFS adoption continues at a rapid pace is no surprise to us – after all, KIOXIA has been at the forefront of UFS memory since 2013, when we were the first to sample the technology1. Look for us to continually update our lineup of managed flash solutions that make an improved user experience a reality.
