Samsung Starts Production Of 20nm 4Gb LPDDR3 DRAM For Mobile Devices (PR)
Samsung has announced that they have started producing 4Gb LPDDR3 mobile DRAM for smartphones and tablets, and we can expect to see this in our next generation devices.
The new 4Gb LPDDR3 mobile DRAM enables performance levels comparable to the standard DRAM utilized in PCs, making it an attractive solution for demanding multimedia-intensive features on next-generation mobile devices such as high-performance smartphones and tablets, Samsung claimed.
The 4Gb LPDDR3 can transmit data at up to 2,133 megabits per second (Mbps) per pin, which is more than double the performance of the preceding memory standard mobile DRAM (LPDDR2) with a data transmission speed of 800Mbps, Samsung disclosed.
Young-Hyun Jun, EVP of memory sales and marketing at Samsung Electronics said, “By providing the most efficient next-generation mobile memory with a very large data capacity, we are now enabling OEMs to introduce even more innovative designs in the marketplace.
“Our 20nm-class four gigabit mobile DRAM provides another example of our ability to deliver well-differentiated, high-performance, high-density memory to customers in a timely manner.”
Meanwhile, in comparison to a 30nm-class LPDDR3 DRAM, the new device generates more than a 30% improvement in performance and 20% savings in power consumption, the firm added.
In addition, by adopting Samsung’s 4Gb LPDDR3 mobile DRAM, OEMs can have a 2GB package that includes four of Samsung’s new chips in a single package that meets the memory package height of 0.8mm, Samsung said.
Samsung also said it will increase production of its 20nm-class mobile DRAM chips later in 2013. It did not elaborate on the details.
We wonder if it will appear in the new Samsung Galaxy Note 3 which is rumored to launch some time this year.
[toggle title=”Press Release”]Samsung Now Producing Four Gigabit LPDDR3 Mobile DRAM, Using 20nm-class* Process Technology
SEOUL, South Korea–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a universe personality in modernized memory technology, currently announced a industry’s initial prolongation of ultra-high-speed 4 gigabit (Gb) low energy double information rate 3 (LPDDR3) mobile DRAM, that is being constructed during a 20 nanometer (nm) class* routine node.
“Our 20nm-class 4 gigabit mobile DRAM provides another instance of a ability to broach well-differentiated, high-performance, high-density memory to business in a timely manner.”
The new 4Gb LPDDR3 mobile DRAM enables opening levels allied to a customary DRAM employed in personal computers, creation it an appealing resolution for perfectionist multimedia-intensive facilities on next-generation mobile inclination such as high-performance smartphones and tablets.
“By providing a many fit next-generation mobile memory with a really vast information capacity, we are now enabling OEMs to broach even some-more innovative designs in a marketplace,” pronounced Young-Hyun Jun, executive clamp president, memory sales marketing, Samsung Electronics. “Our 20nm-class 4 gigabit mobile DRAM provides another instance of a ability to broach well-differentiated, high-performance, high-density memory to business in a timely manner.”
The 4Gb LPDDR3 can broadcast information during adult to 2,133 megabits per second (Mbps) per pin, that is some-more than double a opening of a preceding memory customary mobile DRAM (LPDDR2) with a information delivery speed of 800Mbps. This creates it probable to broadcast 3 full HD videos, collectively 17 Gigabytes (GBs) in length, in one second over a new Samsung chip embedded in a mobile device.
Samsung’s 20nm-class LPDDR3 mobile DRAM enables seamless arrangement of full HD video on smartphones with 5 inch-or-larger screens. In comparison to a 30nm-class LPDDR3 DRAM, a new device generates some-more than a 30 percent alleviation in opening and 20 percent assets in energy consumption.
While mobile gadgets continue to scale down in height, battery packs have been augmenting in size. By adopting Samsung’s 4Gb LPDDR3 mobile DRAM, OEMs can have a 2GB package that includes 4 of Samsung’s new chips in a singular package that meets a memory package tallness of 0.8 millimeters (mm).
Representing a vital expansion cause in a DRAM market, Samsung skeleton to boost prolongation of a modernized 20nm-class mobile DRAM after this year, solidifying a competitiveness as a memory attention leader.
According to marketplace investigate firm, Gartner, a DRAM marketplace is foresee to grow by 13 percent year-over-year to strech $29.6 billion (US) in 2013, with mobile DRAM to surpass $10 billion in sales, for 35 percent of a sum DRAM market.[/toggle]
