Qualcomm, Toshiba to put 1.45GB/s flash serial bus in mobile devices
Qualcomm is to use flash from Toshiba incorporating the new serial connection bus called Universal Flash Standard 2 (UFS2) flash memory in its latest Snapdragon 805 chip-set.
UFS2 flash comes in two flavours one of which can transfer data at 1.45GB/sec.
The lower speed flavour transfers at 725MB/sec.
The motivation for adopting a faster bus is the effective display of 4K video.
It is expected that phones and tablets using the UFS2 bus will be on the market in Q2/Q3.
