Samsung mass produces a NAND chip for smartphones
Samsung Electronics, the world’s largest technology firm by revenue, said yesterday it has started the mass production of the world’s fastest 64 gigabyte embedded memory card to be used for mobile devices.
The 64 gigabyte embedded MultiMedia Card is expected to be packed into high-end smartphones and tablet PCs later this year to support faster streaming of 3-D and full high-definition videos, the company said.
The NAND flash memory-based product enables thinner designs for mobile devices thanks to its 1.2 millimeter thickness. In terms of processing speed, it is around four times faster than products released last year.
The mass production comes as Samsung is stepping up its drive on premium NAND flash products in the mobile memory market. The latest eMMC is an upgraded version of a 32 gigabyte product that Samsung started churning out in May.
“We will confidently strengthen our research and development efforts to continually bring to market the most advanced mobile storage devices based on next-generation standards,” said Lee Jae-hyeong, the vice president of Memory Product Planning & Application Engineering.
