Toshiba: Universal Flash Storage For Mobile Devices

Irvine, Calif.-based Toshiba America Electronic Components unveiled a new relationship with Qualcomm Technologies to bring Universal Flash Storage (UFS) Ver2.0 solutions to mobile devices powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 processors, with production anticipated in the second quarter.

According to Toshiba, UFS offers a significant performance boost for mobile devices, enabling the use of higher-performance applications, higher-resolution video and improved battery life, compared to the current e-MMC flash technology used in such devices.

The Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processors with Toshiba's UFS memory are expected to be used in higher-end mobile devices while e-MCC technology will be used in midrange and entry-level devices, Toshiba said.
