Samsung Now Sampling 8GB Memory Chips
Samsung Electronics announced today that it has begun shipping samples of an 8GB memory chip to major mobile electronics manufacturers - the highest density embedded flash memory developed to date.
Samsung's high-density moviNAND memory solution consists of four 50-nanometer, 16-Gigabit NAND flash memories, a high-speed MultiMediaCard (MMC) controller and associated firmware.
Because Samsung's moviNAND allows NAND flash to be instantly accessed through a standardized MMC interface, manufacturers who use the new memory solution can develop mobile phones more quickly and at less cost than with raw MLC NAND components soldered into a handset.
According to the press release, Samsung's moviNAND is 10-20 percent smaller than other flash-based embedded memory card solutions. The new moviNAND processes data at 52 megabytes per second.
Samsung plans to begin mass producing its 8GB moviNAND in the second quarter of this year. The high-density solution, which is based on Samsung's advanced monolithic high-density NAND technology, will expand Samsung's line of moviNAND memory from 512MB to 8GB.
