   Up to twice as dense as bulk DRAM
   Up to five times as dense as SRAM
Faster technology node introduction and simplified manufacturing flows because there are no capacitors to build Shorter manufacturing cycles times, less work in progress and fewer “at-risk” wafers.

The ONFi Working Group is dedicated to simplifying integration of NAND Flash memory into consumer electronics (CE) applications and computing platforms. Before the advancements made by the working group, use of NAND Flash in these end user applications was hampered by the lack of sufficient standardization. To support a new NAND Flash component on a platform, host software, firmware and/or hardware changes were often required. Implementing these changes was extremely costly due to the new testing cycle required, which led to slower rates of adoption for new NAND Flash components. ONFi aims to remedy that problem and speed time-to-market for NAND Flash-based applications. The ONFi Working Group was formed in May 2006 and currently has 71 member companies. ONFi’s founding companies include Hynix Semiconductor, Intel Corporation, Micron Technology Inc., Phison Electronics Corporation, Sony Corporation and STMicroelectronics.
