Micron Unveils Enhanced UFS 4.0 Mobile Solution with Firmware Features

Micron Technology introduces an upgraded version of its Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 4.0 mobile solution, delivering breakthrough proprietary firmware features in the world's most compact UFS package at 9x13 millimeters (mm). Leveraging advanced 232-layer 3D NAND technology and offering up to 1 terabyte (TB) capacity, the enhanced UFS 4.0 solution sets new standards in performance and innovation, enabling faster and more responsive experiences on flagship smartphones.

High Performance: Micron UFS 4.0 boasts impressive sequential read speeds of up to 4300 megabytes per second (MBps) and sequential write speeds of up to 4000 MBps — twice the performance of previous generations. This acceleration enables users to launch productivity, creativity, and AI applications swiftly, with large language models in generative AI apps loading 40% faster, ensuring smoother interactions with AI digital companions.

Compact Package Design: With a reduced footprint from 11x13 mm to 9x13 mm, Micron achieves the world's most compact managed NAND package size for UFS 4.0 solutions. This compact design paves the way for energy-efficient, ultra-slim smartphones and provides manufacturers with additional space to integrate larger batteries. Combined with a 25% increase in power efficiency, users enjoy extended battery life, even with power-intensive features like AI, augmented reality, gaming, and multimedia apps.

Proprietary Firmware Innovation: Micron introduces groundbreaking firmware features to elevate mobile flash storage performance:
High-Performance Mode (HPM) prioritizes critical tasks during intensive smartphone use, resulting in over 25% improvement in speed when launching multiple applications.
One Button Refresh (OBR) automatically optimizes data, ensuring faster read/write performance, 10% faster app launches, and seamless multi-tasking.
Zoned UFS (ZUFS) allows the host to specify different data storage zones, reducing write amplification and extending smartphone lifespan while maintaining peak performance.

Micron's enhanced UFS 4.0 mobile solution, equipped with revolutionary firmware features and compact design, sets a new benchmark for mobile flash storage. By delivering unparalleled performance, energy efficiency, and reliability, Micron empowers smartphone users with seamless, responsive experiences. With expanded capacities ranging from 256GB to 1TB, Micron ensures that flagship smartphones can accommodate growing data demands while maintaining data security and accessibility.

“Micron’s latest UFS 4.0 solution enables world-class storage performance and reduced power in the world’s smallest UFS package,” said Mark Montierth, general manager and corporate vice president of Micron’s Mobile Business Unit. “Supercharged with breakthrough firmware advancements to keep smartphones running like new, Micron UFS 4.0 raises the bar for mobile storage with enhanced performance, flexibility and scalability to accelerate the rollout of generative AI-capable smartphones.”

Micron is now shipping samples of its upgraded UFS 4.0 in capacities of 256 gigabytes (GB), 512GB and 1TB.
