ONFI FAQs

ONFI(4)
Are your NAND parts ONFI-compliant?
All our 50-series NAND devices and beyond are ONFI-compliant.
How will ONFI help speed time-to-market for NAND-based products?
ONFI improves time-to-market in two principal ways: 

1. It simplifies the design of Flash controllers that support a range of components by improving uniformity in the behavior of the interface to the NAND components. 

2. It reduces the design time of Flash components in end-use applications and enables the use of a new generation of NAND components without design or firmware changes.

What is ONFI?
ONFI stands for Open NAND Flash Interface. ONFI is an industry working group that is dedicated to simplifying the integration of NAND Flash memory into consumer electronic products, computing platforms, and various other applications that require solid state mass storage. The ONFI working group defines standardized component-level interface specifications for NAND Flash. ONFI is also defining module connector and module form factor specifications (similar to DRAM DIMMs) for NAND Flash. For more information, visit www.onfi.org.
What types of products will ONFI 2.1 be seen in first?
ONFI improves the embedded integration of Flash components into a range of products, including many that use Flash today, such as mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, and notebooks. It’s likely, however, that the benefits of ONFI 2.1 will first be realized in PC platforms. Because of the significantly faster speeds that ONFI 2.1 delivers, SSDs and caching solutions will be able to deliver substantive benefits for PC platform workloads.
