February 19, 2020 Perry Cohen

Western Digital  released its new Western Digital iNAND MC EU521, an embedded Universal Flash Storage (UFS) device. Western Digital is a supporter of JEDEC’s implementation of WriteBooster under the UFS 3.1 standard that global handset makers will support for smartphones optimized for 5G applications and capabilities, according to the company.

The Western Digital iNAND MC EU521 embedded flash device allows mobile developers to take full advantage of UFS 3.1 high-interface bandwidth (Gear 4 / 2 Lanes) as well as SLC (single-level cell) NAND caching. It also offers turbo sequential write speeds up to 800MB/s to better enable enhanced user experiences for applications such as downloading 4K and 8K media, large file transfers from the cloud, and gaming. The iNAND EU521 is available in 128GB and 256GB capacities.
