Samsung eUFS solution for auto apps
Samsung Electronics has introduced the industry's first embedded Universal Flash Storage (eUFS) solution for use in next-generation automotive applications. Consisting of 128GB and 64GB versions, the new eUFS solution has been designed for advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), next-generation dashboards and infotainment systems that provide connected features for drivers and passengers. Embedded UFS solutions have been used in a variety of mobile applications since early 2015, when Samsung introduced 128GB embedded memory based on the JEDEC UFS 2.0 standard. Configured on JEDEC UFS 2.1, the new Samsung 128GB eUFS can read data at up to 850MB/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.

Samsung UFS embedded memory
Samsung Electronics has announced that it is now mass producing 128GB ultra-fast embedded memory based on the Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 2.0 standard for smartphones. UFS memory utilizes "Command Queue," a technology that accelerates the speed of command execution in SSDs through a serial interface, significantly increasing data processing speeds compared to the 8-bit parallel-interface-based eMMC standard, Samsung indicated. Its new UFS embedded memory conducts 19,000 IOPS for random reading, which is 2.7 times faster than eMMC 5.0. Samsung's UFS memory also delivers a sequential read and write performance boost up to SSD levels, in addition to a 50% decrease in energy consumption. In addition, the random read speed is 12 times faster than that of a typical high-speed memory card (which runs at 1,500 IOPS).
