Industry first 8Gb LPDDR4 mobile DRAM gets introduced by Samsung
Samsung just pushed the envelope a bit higher for the competition by developing industry first 8Gb LPDDR4 mobile DRAM chip. It is a low power double data rate 4 mobile chip, fabricated in 20 nm and offers 1 GB on a single die which is the largest density among DRAMS.
According to Samsung new chip delivers 50 % higher performance than the fastest LPDDR3 or DDR3 memory chips at the same time consuming 40 percent less energy at 1.1 volts. It also utilizes a Low Voltage Swing Terminated Logic (LVSTL) I/O interface that enables a data transfer rate per pin of 3,200 megabits per second (Mbps), which is twice that of the 20nm-class LPDDR3 DRAM now in mass production.
According to press release with this new chip Samsung aims the premium mobile market, including UHD smartphones, tablets and ultra-slim notebooks.
This next-generation LPDDR4 DRAM will contribute significantly to faster growth of the global mobile DRAM market, which will soon comprise the largest share of the entire DRAM market.
We will continue introducing the most advanced mobile DRAM one step ahead of the rest of the industry so that global OEMs can launch innovative mobile devices with exceptional user convenience in the timeliest manner.
