Universal FlashStorage Assocation Slide Deck 06 jul2012 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. SSDs for Mobile
  • 2. 3rd Wave of Personal Computing Cloud-Based WiFi Services Ethernet Client- LAN Server Broadband Mobile Web Hundreds of Millions Servers of users Tens of Thousands of Apps Billions Millions of users of AppsGreater than 100 watts 10’s of watts Less than 10 watts 2
  • 3. Applications Driving Performance HD Video Voice Recognition Social Network Online Games Seamless Maps Lifestyle Navigation Connectivity Web Location Access Email Based Messaging Services Increasing computing power Going from single-threaded to multi-threaded operational model Low latency and high IOPS required 3
  • 4. Universal Flash Storage (UFS) The Next Generation Mobile Storage Reliability Proven & e.MMC SSD &Low Power Technology Robust CMD Set Built on e.MMC heritage  Incorporate e.MMC features adopted by mobile systems for a smooth transition in mobile applications 4
  • 5. Advancements Beyond e.MMC  Utilize MIPI M-PHY and UniPro standards for the Physical and High Perf. Serial Link layers Interface  Designed for mobile Designed Low Power for  High speed interface Mobile  Higher energy efficiency  Widely adopted SCSI Asynch StatelessOperations Transitions command set and architecture Command model Queuing  Well-known high-performance protocol also used in USB 3.0, SAS, etc.  Enables Asynchronous Operation and Command Queuing 5
  • 6. Support Both External and Embedded UFS supports both removable cards and embedded packages  Reduced costs by sharing the same protocol, same port, same Phy AP 6
  • 7. Flexible Deployment Options UFS Embedded only  Feature & performance rich ”out of the box”  Premium mobile device & price UFS Upgrade Card only  Lower initial price - yet feature rich capable  Configured with UFS card when purchased  Consumer adds or upgrades functionality - later Hybrid model  Sufficient embedded UFS for initial applications  UFS upgrade card capable for additional functionality  Both UGC and new feature rich applications  Together - deliver seamless, high IOPS performance 7
  • 8. UFS Ecosystem UFS Device Standards UFS Enabled Host System & Trade Chipset Integration Associations T10 OS and Driver The UFS Standard is developed in JEDEC JC64 committee, incorporating MIPI M-PHY and UniPro, and INCITS T10 SCSI specification standards  UFS device electrical specification  UFS device mechanical specification  UFS host controller interface specification The Universal Flash Storage Association (UFSA) focuses on ecosystem enablement and compliance certification 8
  • 9. The Universal Flash Storage Association (UFSA) was foundedin 2010 as an open Trade Association to promote widespread industry adoptionand acceptance of the UFS standard.Primary Missions:  UFS technology promotion  UFS infrastructure enablement  Product compliance and UFS logo certification management  Technical input into JEDEC for future specificationsCurrent Board Members:  Samsung, Micron, SK Hynix, Agilent, Phison & Silicon Motion www.universalflash.org
