Briefly Noted: JEDEC publishes “A” rev of UFS HCI standard

JEDEC announced today that it has just published an “A” revision of the spec (JESD223A) for the Universal Flash Storage Host Controller Interface (UFS HCI), a companion to the JESD220 standard for UFS, a Flash storage specification for a range of mobile devices including smartphones, digital cameras, and possibly tablets. UFS is widely seen as the eventual successor to the highly successful series of SD cards, bringing more capacity and more bandwidth to portable storage.

If you’re a JEDEC member, you can download the JESD223A standard now at the JEDEC site ( It’s also available for purchase.
