Overview: Formed in 2006, the Open NAND Flash Interface Working Group (ONFi) is a consortium of technology companies working to develop open standards for NAND flash memory and devices that communicate with them. ONFi 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-use applications was hampered by the lack of sufficient standardization. To support a new NAND Flash component on a platform, host software and 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.
