Arasan’s Universal Flash Storage 3.0 (UFS 3.0) is a simple but high performance, serial interface primarily used in mobile systems, between host processing and nonvolatile eXecute-In-Place (XIP) or mass storage memory devices.
Mobile phones, UMPC, DSC, PMP are some of the typical applications for UFS Host Controller IP. Majority of these applications require mass storage and bootable storage memory with an option for an external card.
The IP incorporates the latest UFS Host Controller Interface (HCI) version 3.0. Arasan’s MIPI M-PHY® HS-G4 IP is available in GDSII format for a variety of process technologies and MIPI UniProSM version 1.8 link layer with support for multi-lane operation and the optional Unified Memory Architecture (UMA) implementation.
Arasan’s UFS 3.0 Host Controller allows for highly secured applications by employing AES encryption. The data encryption and decryption is done seamlessly by the controller as data is written to or read from the UFS 3.0 device.
