UFS - definition


Universal Flash Storage (UFS) provides a standard specification for storage used by mobile phones and other consumer devices.

In 2018, the latest UFS 3.0 standard was announced. It promises up to 2x the bandwidth while using lower.

A single lane can carry up to 11.6 Gbps, twice what the UFS 2.1 standard could manage. For more speed, two lanes can be used for a total of 23.2 Gbps.

The new version of the standard has moved to 2.5V operation while the previous generation worked on 2.7V to 3.6V.
