Samsung today announced that it is introducing the industry’s first embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) solution for use in next-generation automotive applications. Consisting of 128-gigabyte (GB) and 64GB versions. The new eUFS solution is designed for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), next-generation dashboards and infotainment systems that provide comprehensive connected features for drivers and passengers worldwide. Configured on the most up-to-date UFS standard (JEDEC UFS 2.1), the new Samsung eUFSwill provide advanced data transfer speeds and robust data reliability.
The new Samsung 128GB eUFS can read data at up to 850 megabytes per second (MB/s), which is approximately 3.4 times faster than the 250MB/s read speed of today’s eMMC 5.0 solutions. It also offers about 6.3 times faster random reading than eMMC at 45,000 IOPS. The Samsung eUFS supports advanced data refresh and temperature notification features for superior system reliability. The Samsung eUFS equips the temperature sensor inside the controller to enable highly reliable device temperature control.
