SK hynix reveals NAND chip for mobile AI applications

Korea's memory chip maker SK hynix has developed ZUFS 4.0, a next-gen NAND Flash product that boosts the speed of a smartphone's OS and storage systems. It expects to ship from Q3.

The mobile device market has been in something of a slump in the last few years, but is now being re-energised by the clamour for on-device AI applications. SK hynix has responded to this demand by developing Zoned Universal Flash Storage (ZUFS).

Unlike a conventional UFS, ZUFS groups and stores data with similar purposes and frequencies in separate zones, boosting the speed of a smartphone's operating system and management efficiency of the storage devices.

The ZUFS chip also shortens the time required to run an application from a smartphone in long hours use by 45%, compared with UFS. With the issue of degradation of read and write performance improved by more than four times, the lifetime of the product also increased by 40%.

Ahn Hyun, Head of the N-S Committee at SK hynix, said: "SK hynix will continue to work toward strengthening its leadership as the global top AI memory provider by supplying high-performance NAND solutions that meet such higher requirements at a right time, while building up stronger partnership with leading ICT companies."
