With all the attention paid to smartphones and tablets, it's sometimes easy to forget that Samsung also produces some of the parts that end up in these mobile devices. In fact, the South Korean company announced that it's begun pumping out what it claims is the industry's first ultra high-speed, 4Gb (gigabit), LPDDR3 mobile memory built on a 20nm-class technology. According to Samsung, the major upside with these mobile chips is that they offer comparable performance to standard DRAM found in desktop and laptop computers. The speedy chips transmit data at up to 2,133 megabits per second (Mbps)... Read more...
It looks like mobile device performance is about to get another bump in the right direction. Samsung announced that it has begun mass producing 2GB LPDDR3 memory, which will eventually supplant LPDDR2 in many mobile devices. The new memory is built using a 30nm process and consists of four LPDDR3 chips stacked together in a single package. Performance will purportedly double that of LPDDR2--Samsung says it can muster transfer data at 1600Mbps per pin with a data transmission rate of 12.8GBps. “We will embrace greater technical cooperation with industry leading mobile device makers, as we...

Two of the major needs of mobile device components are lower power consumption and greater speed. Elpida Memory’s next-gen 4Gb Wide IO Mobile RAM and DDR3 Mobile RAM (LPDDR3) are designed to address both of these issues. The Wide IO Mobile RAM boasts 12.8GBps per chip at 200MHz by using the extra-wide x512-bit data width and a purported 50% drop in power consumption. Elpida’s new LPDDR3 memory offers twice the data rate as LPDDR2, at 6.4GBps or 12.8GBps depending on configuration, and claims it consumes 25% less power. Elpida will soon develop two-layer 8-gigabit and four-layer 16-gigabit... Read more...
