Samsung has unveiled a new ultra-high-speed four gigabit (Gb) low power double data rate 3 (LPDDR3) mobile DRAM in view of delivering well-differentiated, high-performance, high-density memory to customers in a timely manner. It is being produced at a 20 nanometre class process node.
When the 4 Gb LPDDR3 mobile DRAM from Samsung is used in Smartphone’s and Tablets, it can send/receive data up to 2,133 megabits per second (Mbps) per pin which means almost three full HD videos of 17 GB total length can be transferred in just one second. The seamless display of full HD video on Smartphone’s with five inch-or-larger screens can use LPDDR3.
As per the executive Vice President, Samsung Electronics, "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". He further added, "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."
The data transmission speed of 4 Gb LPDDR3 is twice in comparison to the LPDDR2. The performance would improve by more than 30 percent and power saving by nearly 20 percent when new LPDDR3 is used. The new 4 Gb LPDDR3 would be advantageous for manufacturers who are scaling down the size of their mobile devices. OEM’s can have a 2GB package that includes four of Samsung’s new chips in a single package that meets the memory package height of 0.8 millimetres by using this DRAM.
