Dell, Intel & Microsoft form NAND-based Flash memory standards group
Broad adoption of NAND flash memory technology in the PC platform will be overseen by the formation of the Non-Volatile Memory Host Controller Interface (NVMHCI) Working Group.

The NVMHCI Working Group is chaired by Intel Corporation with core contributors including Dell Inc. and Microsoft Corp.

NVMHCI will provide a standard software programming interface for nonvolatile memory subsystems and be used by operating system drivers to access NAND flash memory storage in applications such as hard drive caching and solid-state drives.

NVMHCI complements standardization work being done in the Open NAND Flash Interface (ONFI) Working Group.

"Nonvolatile memory solutions enable better system performance and lower power consumption as well as facilitate additional benefits such as smaller form factors, quieter systems and improved robustness," said Liam Quinn, director of communications for technology strategy and architecture at Dell.

Intelís new Santa Rosa chipset (for mobile devices) makes use of this by offering OEMs to optionally include their Turbo Memory which is a 512MB or 1GB can be included on the mainboard or as PCIe 1x card. Microsoft Windows Vista will make use of this technology with its ReadyBoost and ReadyDrive performance technologies
