Next-Gen UFS from KIOXIA: Elevating the Mobile Experience

Next Gen UFS from KIOXIA Elevating the Mobile Experience

The pace of technological advancements can be astonishingly fast, and this is particularly true for mobile devices. These advancements necessitate greater storage capacity to support the larger file sizes in new applications  - and to capitalize on the benefits of 5G connectivity.

At KIOXIA, our UFS offerings are designed with the next generation in mind.

With the introduction of our latest UFS 4.0 embedded flash memory devices, KIOXIA continues to show our commitment to creating technologies that enable advancements in an ever-changing digital world. Available in capacities ranging from 256 gigabytes (GB) to 1 terabyte (TB), our new UFS devices stand ready to create a better user experience on mobile apps - particularly high-end, feature-rich smartphones. With accelerated downloads, minimized latency, and overall improved responsiveness, users can expect a seamless and immersive mobile experience1.

The smaller package size of the new KIOXIA devices also offers advantages in terms of board space efficiency and design flexibility. At 9x13mm in size and with a thickness of just 0.8mm for the 256GB and 512GB variants (and 0.9mm for the 1TB variant), these devices represent an 18% reduction compared to conventional package sizes (11x13). This reduction not only allows for sleeker and more compact designs but also opens up possibilities for manufacturers to innovate further in their product designs.

By delivering enhanced performance, smaller package sizes, and an unwavering commitment to innovation, we're elevating the mobile experience for users around the globe. You can read more about our latest UFS devices in this press release.

1: Compared to previous generation

Universal Flash Storage (UFS) is a product category for a class of embedded memory products built to the JEDEC UFS standard specification. Due to its serial interface, UFS supports full duplexing, which enables both concurrent reading and writing between the host processor and UFS device.

In every mention of a KIOXIA product: Product density is identified based on the density of memory chip(s) within the Product, not the amount of memory capacity available for data storage by the end user. Consumer-usable capacity will be less due to overhead data areas, formatting, bad blocks, and other constraints, and may also vary based on the host device and application. For details, please refer to applicable product specifications. The definition of 1KB = 2^10 bytes = 1,024 bytes. The definition of 1Gb = 2^30 bits = 1,073,741,824 bits. The definition of 1GB = 2^30 bytes = 1,073,741,824 bytes. 1Tb = 2^40 bits = 1,099,511,627,776 bits.
