Announcing Availability of ONFI 4.0 IP
Flash memory applications have expanded from USB Flash Drive “sticks” to solid state drives (SSD) and beyond, as designers demand increased non-volatile storage capacity and performance. Designers are also faced with the challenge to reduce system-level power. To meet these needs Cadence is unveiling its Open NAND Flash Interface (ONFI) 4.0 IP, delivering increased data access rates up to 800 MegaTransfers/sec (Mtps) and reducing power consumption more than 50%.
The ONFI 4.0 specification was published in April of 2014 by the Open NAND Flash Interface organization. The standard includes the evolutionary NV-DDR3 interface that utilizes reduced voltage for higher performance and improved power consumption. Performance for NV-DDDR and NV-DDR3 I/O scales to 667Mtps and 800Mtps, and power consumption is reduced to >50%.
