MediaTek supports new XFM Embedded and Removable Memory Device Standard

Aug 29, 2021

XFMD is a removable, versatile memory solution intended for use in a wide range of applications that require an easy storage updates and data exchange. Examples include IoT devices, automotive applications, notebook PCs, gaming consoles, video recording devices (drones, surveillance systems, etc.), Extended Reality (AR, VR, MR), and many more.

Recently published by JEDEC Solid State Technology Association, the new XFMD standard is a universal data storage media providing NVMe® storage over PCI Express® interface in a small, thin form factor. The device is designed to bring replaceable storage to devices typically soldered down in IoT devices and embedded applications.

Harrison Hsieh, Senior General Manager of Silicon Product Development at MediaTek, commented on the announcement, “MediaTek is proud to have collaborated with JEDEC members to advance the development of the Embedded and Removable Memory Device (XFMD) standard, which provides an attractive option for high-performance storage in embedded devices. Platform developers and device makers can easily adopt XFMD with minimal effort to enable new, expandable storage options for end users.”
