Samsung Reveals New Mobile Memory Chip, Makes Way for Smartphones with 2GB of RAM
Clearly, Samsung is aiming at superphones, tablets and mobile devices of the future here. With 4Gb components, the company is able to create 2GB chips that are only 0.8mm, which stack four 4Gb LPDDR2 chips in a single LPDDR2 package. This new package is approximately 20 percent thinner than 2GB packages that stack four 30nm-class 4Gb LPDDR2 chips. Also, the new 2GB package can process data at up to 1,066 megabits per second (Mbps), while spending the same amount of power as that of a previous 30nm-class 2GB package. Benefits of the new 20nm-class 4Gb LPDDR2 will help speed up the growth of the 4Gb DRAM market.
So, all those 2GB phones coming out? Place your bets on what chip is inside.
