Samsung develops first eMMC 5.1 flash memory

The semiconductor industry’s standards group JEDEC has just approved the new specification for the eMMC 5.1 (embedded multimedia card memory) NAND flash technology.

Samsung says it has developed a line-up of new eMMC 5.1 products, consisting of 64 gigabyte (GB), 32GB and 16GB densities. The 64GB eMMC 5.1 memory features a maximum speed of 250 megabytes per second (MB/s) for sequential data reading and 125MB/s for sequential writes.

For random read and write performance, Samsung's 64GB eMMC 5.1 memory achieves up to 11,000 IOPS (input/output operations per second) and 13,000 IOPS, which are approximately seven and 26 times faster respectively, compared to a typical external micro SD card with approximately 1,500 IOPS and 500 IOPS.

Moreover, eMMC 5.1 will please the mobile design community with eMMC’s first command queue function, which enables seamless multitasking activities including the streaming and playback of UHD (Ultra High Definition) video content.

In addition, Samsung's new eMMC 5.1 NAND solutions also include a "Secure Write Protection" security protocol feature that ensures only designated users will be able to access secured areas of the eMMC.
