Spotlight on JEDEC Flash

 

For OEMs and designers, being able to rely on the compatibility of device components is critical. As such, many flash products are required to meet standards set by independent organizations. These organizations are comprised of representatives from large numbers of technology companies who work together to determine benchmarks for flash products that maximize reliability and functionality. One such organization is JEDEC, which sets standards for microtechnologies. JEDEC flash has existed since 1958 and has had a tremendous impact on the evolution of the electronics industry.

 

JEDEC History

When JEDEC formed in 1958, it focused exclusively on tubes and semiconductors. In its original form, JEDEC was responsible for giving parts unique product numbers. Soon, the group expanded into setting testing standards and then product standards. Over the years, JEDEC has played a central role in the development of military and communications technologies, PCs, and automotive technologies. Initially, JEDEC standards were only available in the US, but in 1999, JEDEC signed deals with the International Electrotechnical Commission and Japan’s Electronic Industries Association. These deals made JEDEC standards applicable internationally.

 

JEDEC and Flash Memory

Flash memory is one of JEDEC’s important focus areas. In fact, JEDEC has created standards for all aspects of flash storage. The JEDEC JC-64 committee is the group that is in charge of managing flash memory standards. Over the years, the specific focus of the committee for flash memory has changed as the use of flash memory has evolved. Today, JEDEC works most closely on standards for solid state flash technology, but the group has also set standards for eMMC, Universal Flash Storage, and much more.

 

JEDEC Flash Standards

The standards set by JEDEC address most aspects of memory systems. These include testing, packaging, quality, and reliability. When anyone purchases flash memory that adheres to JEDEC standards, they know exactly what they will get and the base level of quality they can expect. This takes the guesswork out of using flash memory for designers, regardless of the manufacturer they select.
