KIOXIA Introduces World’s Thinnest 1TB Ver 3.1 UFS Embedded Flash Memory Device

Designed to Meet the Demands of High-End 5G Smartphones and Other Data-Intensive, Demanding Mobile Applications.
 

KIOXIA Europe GmbH announced sampling of its 1 terabyte (TB) Universal Flash Storage (UFS) Ver. 3.1 embedded flash memory devices. Housed in a 1.1mm-high package – making it the thinnest 1TB UFS offering available, per the company, the new product utilizes KIOXIA’s BiCS FLASH 3D flash memory and achieves sequential read speed of up to 2,050MB/sec and sequential write speed of up to 1,200MB/sec. 

KIOXIA’s 1TB UFS brings high speed read/write performance, low power consumption, shortened application launch times, and storage capacity demanded by 5G and other digital consumer products.

KIOXIA’s new 1TB UFS device integrates BiCS FLASH 3D flash memory and a controller, which performs error correction, wear leveling, logical-to-physical address translation, and bad-block management for system development. 

The new UFS 1TB device includes the following features:
• WriteBooster: Enables suitable write speeds. 
• Host Performance Booster (HPB) Ver. 2.0: Improves random read performance by utilizing the host side memory to store logical to physical translation tables. While HPB Ver. 1.0 only enables 4KB chunk size access, HPB Ver. 2.0 enables wider access.
