UFS Card Pinout

UFS Card Description and Pin Out

Universal Flash Storage Card [UFS] is a type of Removable NAND-type small flash memory card format, introduced in 2010.
Part of the intent is to have a common flash memory card, instead of the number of different types now; both in physical size and pin out [as shown in the graphic below]. However the release of UFS will not cause the standard multi-card readers to vanish from PC, as those other formats will continue to exist for some time.

The Universal Flash Storage specification is due for release in the four quarter of 2010.
JESD220; defines an UFS Universal Flash Storage electrical interface and an UFS memory device [Feb 2011].
"The M-PHY interface is designed as the primary physical interface (PHY layer) for the UniPro specification, and is a high speed serial interface targeting up to 2.9 gigabits per second (Gbps) per lane with up-scalability to 5.8Gbps per lane" JEDEC.

I have not seen the pin-out for the UFS memory card yet.
So, not sure if it resembles a current card size format and pin location,
so that it would use a current flash memory reader slot.
However another flash adaptor is still possible.

At any rate, the standard was just released a few months ago so there should be very few products designed to the UFS specification.
Even less of a chance that the products have hit the market place yet, lesser still that many people own a product.
