UFS 2.0 is the next generation of embedded flash memory to eMMC for mobile IT gadgets which drives a boost in reading/writing speed at low power and supports high density. The Company?s UFS 2.0 operates at 780MB/s(Megabytes per second) and 160MB/s of sequential read/write speed and runs random read/write speed at 32,000 IOPS (Input/Output operations per second) and 17,000 IOPS. As a result, it works three times faster in read speed than eMMC 5.1.
In addition, this UFS 2.0 utilizes 'Command Queue' technology used in SSD solutions to handle read and write commands simultaneously to achieve data operation efficiency by preventing buffering load in multi-tasking and ordering priorities of data works. To maximize prioritized command processing feature of UFS standard, the device employs 'Multi-Thread' read processing internally to ensure that high priority command is serviced first irrespective of other outstanding tasks, delivering fast response to time-critical host requests for best user experience. In consequence, it realizes even better performance in speed and power consumption over eMMC.
UFS is forecast for installation in high end smartphones from this year and adoption in mid-low end products gradually. According to IHS Technology, the share of UFS in mobile embedded memory will take 4% in this year and grow up to 23% in 2017 and 49% in 2019.
