KIOXIA Europe GmbH today announced that it has begun sampling the latest generation of its JEDEC e-MMC Ver. 5.1-compliant embedded flash memory products for consumer applications. The new products are offered in capacities of 64GB and 128GB and combine the company’s BiCS FLASH 3D flash memory and a controller in a single package.
Demand for mid-range capacities in consumer products such as tablets and IoT devices keep growing. Although the market gradually shifts to UFS, there are cases where e-MMC will continue to be relevant. Its new e-MMC devices expand the available options.
A leading provider of flash memory and storage for consumer applications and mobile devices, it has been supporting e-MMC since 2007 and was the first supplier to release the higher performance follow-on solution to e-MMC, UFS, in early 2013. Today, the company's broad lineup of e-MMC and UFS solutions provide support across a broad range of densities (4GB-1TB).
“Reflecting on evolving consumer applications that require enhanced, next-generation e-MMC, KIOXIA addresses this need by introducing the latest JEDEC e-MMC Ver. 5.1 and delivering broader, higher-performance product lineup, and in that, leading the way forward,” said Axel Stoermann, vice president memory marketing and engineering, KIOXIA Europe GmbH.
