JEDEC Solid State Technology Association has published a new test
standard related to its Universal Flash Storage (UFS) standard, available for free download from the JEDEC website.
UFS is a high performance interface for the next generation of mass
storage devices to be used in mobile systems such as smart phones and
tablets. Its high speed serial interface and optimized protocol enable
dramatic improvements in throughput and system performance. JESD224
defines standard test cases and procedures for measuring the behavior of
UFS devices and comparing that with the requirements of the UFS
specification (JESD220A). Standardizing these procedures is important in
assuring interoperability between device and host vendors.
The Universal Flash Storage Association (UFSA), an industry trade
association promoting the market adoption of UFS technology, will
incorporate the new test procedures described in the JESD224 document
into the UFSA Compliance Test Specification for UFS product compliance
