UFS memory on the horizon

Universal Flash Storage or UFS is an attempt by the industry to drive up memory capacity and specs for consumer electronic devices such as mobile phones and digital cameras. Access speeds are expected to be around twenty times todays speeds.

Seculative design of UFS cartridge

UFS is still a work in progress by the JEDEC Solid State Technology Association and a final standard is expected to be available by 2009.

Major consumer electronics companis which are backing the development of the standard include:

Expect to see cameras and phones with vastly greater capacity and speeds than we take for granted now when the new standard is hopefully announced in eighteen months time.

    Nice blog. I like the snapshot effect for the main graphic in the post. Creates a repetitive and familiar look to the blog.

    How do you do it?

    I got the scripts for this from here:

    It’s a mixture of Javascript and flash. Basically the javascript selects certain images in your page and replaces them with flash-enhanced versions.

    Thanks. Did you make the graphic for this post? I am writing a series on memory products and drives, and will make a mention of your post.

    Thanks for the mention!

    The graphic for this post is a photo-montage of an ordinary ScanDisk 1.0GB card – with the logos removed and colours altered. It’s purely speculative so use with care!
