Open NAND Flash Interface – Made up of more than 80 companies that build, design-in, or enable NAND flash memory. This is used mainly as a storage component in many small devices. (boot, firmware/OS and Data).Standardizing the NAND Flash interface.
ONFI’s parameter page provides the controller with all of the device’s relevant capabilities for quicker design, qualification, and testing.
ONFI’s industry-standard BGA package accommodates both asynchronous and source-synchronous interfaces.
Higher Speeds At 400 MB/s, ONFI is the fastest NAND interface standard on the planet. These high speeds are made possible by the bidirectional source-synchronous DQS and scalable I/O interface.
ONFI 3 Announced in March of 2011
Promotes a high-speed NAND Flash interface supporting transfer rates up to 400 MB/s – requires fewer chip enable pins enabling more efficient PCB routing – designed for the future and supports the EZ-NAND interface
