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.
NAND Flash Interface and ONFi
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
