Strong State Know-how Affiliation (JEDEC) lately launched a brand new Common Flash Storage (UFS) normal, UFS 2.2. Though, the affiliation is simply formally saying this normal immediately, the official launch of MediaTek Dimensity 800U and Dimensity 720 SoC chips already confirmed its existence. Nonetheless, that is the primary time that the small print of this normal is hitting the general public area.
The newest UFS normal 2.x model at the moment is UFS 2.1 whereas the 3.x model is UFS 3.1. Nonetheless, we now have UFS 2.2 which brings a few new options. Here’s what the affiliation has to say
“The aim of this normal is the definition of a UFS Common Flash Storage electrical interface and a UFS reminiscence gadget. This normal defines a singular UFS function set and consists of the function set of eMMC normal as a subset. This normal replaces JESD220C, UFS 2.1, and introduces a function known as WriteBooster”.
The doc quantity for UFS 2.2 normal is JESDJESD220C-2.2 and this clarifies the usual’s specs.
The key distinction between UFS 2.2 and UFS 2.1 is the addition of Write Booster (write accelerator) perform. This function improves the writing velocity of the UFS 2.2 over that of its predecessor. The rise in writing velocity will typically result in quicker utility startup velocity and cache loading. It should additionally guarantee higher searching conduct, quicker encoding time, and plenty of different good options.
What’s UFS 2.2?
When you check out older smartphones and tablets, you’ll notice that they use eMMCs storage to retailer data. As innovation progresses, we’ve got seen many smartphones now utilizing the Common Flash Storage (UFS). Initially, it was a function for flagship smartphones. Nonetheless, whereas the UFS 3.x is now for flagships, mid-range chips now assist UFS 2.x.
This answer makes use of a high-density NAND reminiscence. With this answer, you will have the present good interconnectivity between the chip and the reminiscence of the phone. This ensures that there’s a swift, secure, and extra dependable connection between the 2.
How is UFS higher than eMMC?
Whereas eMMC continues to be related for a lot of digital merchandise like smartphones, tablets, and many others, UFS presents extra. The united statessolution presents a quicker sequential learn and write velocity in addition to a quicker random learn and write velocity. That not all, UFS may learn and write concurrently, a function that eMMC cannot boast of. As well as, it may possibly deal with a number of instructions concurrently. The flexibility of UFS provides it an edge over eMMC.
