Samsung launches first 8GB LPDDR4 DRAM package
Samsung has launched the first 8-gigabyte (GB) LPDDR4 (low power, double data rate 4) mobile DRAM package, for application such as, Ultra HD, large-screen devices. The 8GB package consumes four of the newest 16 gigabit (Gb) LPDDR4 memory chips and it is mainly using 10-nanometer (nm)-semi-conductor process technology.
“The advent of our powerful 8GB mobile DRAM solution will enable more capable next-generation, flagship mobile devices around the world,” said Joo Sun Choi, executive vice president of Memory Sales and Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to provide advanced memory solutions offering the highest values and leading-edge benefits to meet the escalating needs of devices having dual camera, 4K UHD and VR features.”
This device runs at a faster access rate of 4,266 megabits per second (Mbps), which is double than the DDR4 DRAM for PCs which work at 2,133. At this speed with the 64 bit (x64) wide memory bus, they can transmit over 34GBs of data per second.
By using this 8GB LPDDR4 memory the virtual machine operations can be achieved in tablets and also smoother play of 4K UHD videos possible in LCD tvs and any such video playback systems.
Due to the 10nm process technology and also the low power circuit design the 8GB LPDDR4 DRAM delivers it’s high performance.
The 8GB LPDDR4 has 3 dimensions that has XYZ dimensions of 15mm by 15mm by 1.0mm, which makes them very useful for slim mobile phones. A DRAM package of 1.0mm thickness basically permits stacking the package together with UFS memory or a mobile application processor.
