Western Digital iNAND MC EU521, a device incorporating the specification, was introduced UFS (Universal Flash Storage, ed) to offer developers the opportunity to improve the experience of users who use a 5G smartphone.
The company has supported the adoption of JEDEC's Write Booster technology from the outset as part of the new UFS 3.1 standard and today among the first in the sector to sell storage solutions with this standard optimized for applications and 5G capacity.
Specifically, the Western Digital iNAND MC EU521 device with built-in flash technology allows developers to take full advantage of the high bandwidth of the UFS 3.1 standard (Gear 4/2 Lanes) as well as the single-level cell (SLC) NAND cache .
It also offers a sequential turbo write speed of up to 800MB / s to improve the user experience in situations such as downloading 4K, 8K multimedia files and large file transfers via cloud and gaming.
Smartphones require more and more performance and capacity than in the past, as today they increasingly represent the first computing device used for any activity, from playing video and music files to gaming and photography, from payments to the use of maps, he said Huibert Verhoeven, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Western Digital for the Automotive, Mobile and Emerging sectors The SLC-type cache memory in the iNAND EU521 together with the Write Booster technology offers users improved performance that, in the 5G area, will allow for example to download movies much faster than in the past.
Western Digital's iNAND storage solutions for smartphones and mobile devices leverage 96-layer 3D NAND technology and the advanced UFS interface to improve the user experience. This family of commercial products developed especially for all those applications that make intensive use of data such as 4K / 8K videos, augmented reality, virtual reality and artificial intelligence.
The new Western Digital iNAND EU521 will be available in March in 128 GB and 256 GB capacities. For all the news on 5G technology you can refer to this section of our website.
