High Capacity and High Performance Flash Memory

High speed memory interface is a critical component to support high speed data in applications like personal computers, mobile phones, and digital cameras.  These applications require a high capacity and high performance NAND flash memory, and Toggle2NAND is one of the most suitable NAND interfaces.

High Speed Memory in Smart Phones: MIPI UniPro v1.8 for JEDEC UFS v3.0

Flash storage is one of the most important component of a smart phone, and with every new version comes higher memory capacity and performance. The most rapidly adopted flash memory technology in recent years is Universal Flash Storage (UFS), with UFS v2.1 providing a maximum data rate of ~11Gbps. JEDEC has come up with the faster next-generation UFS v3.0 which uses MIPI UniPro v1.8 (Unified Protocol) and MIPI M-PHY v4.1 as interconnect layer.

Higher Mobile Storage Performance at Lower System Cost

Higher storage performance at a lower cost can create a bottleneck in the design of storage devices.  In order to achieve higher performance, devices must use on chip DRAM, which adds to the overall cost. This is where Unified Memory Extension (UME), a JEDEC specification, comes into the picture. It is defined as extension to the JEDEC UFS (Universal Flash Storage) specification. JEDEC UFS device uses NAND flash technology for data storage. Unified Memory (UM) allows users to use part of the host memory as the device’s internal memory. Since the host memory is already available in large capacities, this mechanism provides a much bigger space for the device to use as a Write Buffer (WB) cache or to store information such as Logical to Physical (L2P) address translation tables. The UM area is physically located on the host side but ultimately belongs to the device, thereby replacing the device-integrated RAM, and reducing overall cost. Large space availability means the device can store larger amounts of WB of L2P table information resulting in higher storage performance.

eMMC: An Optimal Flash Memory

The two fundamental requirements of every mobile device is speed and power, with the biggest challenge being that both are inversely proportional to each other. One simply cannot have both, because with higher speed comes higher power consumption. With the ever increasing demand for higher resolution graphics and media to enrich the user experience, there has been a significant addition to data processing that requires high speed data transfers. Even though the devices are capable of capturing and playing back high quality media, the storage unit is not fast enough to match the required transfer speeds.  This is an out of sync combination and one of the biggest challenges for mobile designs. The problem here is that, a memory system is required to be capable enough to perform read write operations at high speed without adding any significant numbers to power consumption.
