JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, which specializes in the development of standards for the microelectronics industry, and the Open NAND Flash Interface Workgroup (ONFI) has announced the publication of JESD230 NAND Flash Interface Interoperability Standard (Package).
This jointly developed document defines a standard for NAND flash device interface interoperability. JESD230 is available for free download from both www.jedec.org and www.onfi.org.
JESD230 addresses signaling descriptions, packages, definitions, abbreviations and conventions, and is backwards compatible with existing technologies to the greatest degree possible, according to Amber Huffman, senior principal engineer, Intel Storage Technologies Group and chairperson for the ONFI Workgroup Board of Directors. The standard will help enable the design of interoperable systems that can support Asynchronous SDR, Synchronous DDR and Toggle DDR NAND flash devices, she adds.
