Introducing Samsung’s UFS 4.0 based memory solution with higher speed and lower energy consumption

EMGblog.com: While the capacity of storage space in smartphones Considered one of the most important decision-making factors for consumers, the type of storage technology is often overlooked. Today, most Android smartphones (and of course many other electronic devices) use a technology called UFS (abbreviated Universal Flash Storage) are used, which version 3.0 or 3.1 is offered in most flagship products. Now the Samsung company on Tuesday, May 3 of this year (May 13, 1401), on its Twitter account He has announced the introduction of the latest memory solution with the UFS 4.0 standard, which has also received the approval of the board of JEDEC.

UFS 4.0 from 7th generation V-NAND memory and dedicated controller with sequential (rather than random) read speed up to 4,200 MB in seconds and offers sequential write speeds of up to 2,800 MB/s. In fact, in the new Samsung storage technology, the sequential read speed of information compared to the previous generation, i.e. UFS 3.1 standard, is about It has doubled. Meanwhile, the sequential writing speed has even more than doubled, from 1,200 MB/s to 2,800 MB/s; Although Samsung itself talks about improving the writing speed by 1.6 times. In addition, in Samsung’s new memory architecture, efficiency and energy consumption have been improved by 46% compared to UFS 3.1; As it will be possible to read information sequentially at a speed of 6.0 MB per second per milliampere consumption; Which means longer battery life and faster speed.

This dramatic increase in speed is achieved thanks to a transfer rate of 23.2 Gbps per transfer bus alongside the 7th generation V-NAND memory technology, which includes 176 layers. According to Samsung, this output makes UFS 4.0-based memory technology an ideal option not only for use in 5G phones, but also for virtual and augmented reality applications. In addition, in terms of capacity, the Korean company has announced a limit of 1TB of UFS 4.0 capacity.

Of course, UFS 3.1 also has the possibility of providing such capacity, and for this reason, it is estimated that with the further maturity of UFS 4.0, samples with capacity More than 1 TB of this technology can be used in phones. However, with its speed, this amount seems sufficient even for high-end and expensive phones.

It should be said that Samsung has these capabilities in a compact space with maximum sizes. 11x13x1 mm with various storage capacities up to 1 TB. Meanwhile, the length of a 512 GB module based on UFS 3.1 is slightly larger and is presented in dimensions of 11.5x13x1 mm.

According to Samsung’s plan, the mass production of memory based on UFS 4.0 will start from the third quarter of 2022. In this way, it can be expected that phones equipped with this technology will be released to the market at the end of this year or the first months of next year.
