KIOXIA today announced the industry’s first Universal Flash Storage (UFS)3 devices in the industry that support MIPI M-PHY v5.04.
The new line uses proprietary BiCS FLASH 3D flash memory and is available in three sizes: 128 GB, 256 GB and 512 GB. The new devices provide high read and write speeds and are designed for a variety of mobile applications, including advanced smartphones.
The new KIOXIA devices are next-generation UFS (MIPI M-PHY 5.0), which have a theoretical interface speed of up to 23.2 Gbps per line in HS-GEAR mode.
The sequential read and write performance of the 256 GB device is improved by approximately 90 and 70 percent, respectively, compared to previous generation devices.
In addition, the random read and write performance of the 256 GB device is improved by approximately 35 percent and 60 percent, respectively, compared to previous generation devices.
This next generation of UFS delivers a significant performance boost, enabling next-generation smartphones and other products to expand their capabilities and improve the end-user experience in the 5G era and beyond.
