Open NAND Flash Interface Working Group

The Open NAND Flash Interface Working Group (ONFI or ONFi with a lower case "i"), is a consortium of technology companies working to develop open standards for NAND flash memory chips and devices that communicate with them. The formation of ONFI was announced at the Intel Developer Forum in March 2006.

The group's goals notably do not include the development of a new consumer flash memory card format. Rather, ONFI seeks to standardize the low-level interface to raw NAND flash chips, which are the most widely used form of non-volatile memory circuits today; in 2006, nearly one trillion MiB of flash memory was incorporated into consumer electronics, and production was expected to double in 2007.

    The generation of women before us who rushed to fill the corporate ranks altered our expectations of what working motherhood could be, tempered our ambition, and exploded the supermom myth many of us held dear.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)

    Now, honestly: if a large group of ... demonstrators blocked the entrances to St. Patrick’s Cathedral every Sunday for years, making it impossible for worshipers to get inside the church without someone escorting them through screaming crowds, wouldn’t some judge rule that those protesters could keep protesting, but behind police lines and out of the doorways?
    Anna Quindlen (b. 1953)

    O polished perturbation! golden care!
    That keep’st the ports of slumber open wide
    To many a watchful night.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    They flash upon that inward eye
    Which is the bliss of solitude;
    And then my heart with pleasure fills,
    And dances with the daffodils.
    William Wordsworth (1770–1850)
