Samsung Rolls out 8GB LPDDR4 DRAM Package for Mobile Devices.

TEHRAN (FNA)- Samsung Electronics has introduced an 8GB LPDDR4 mobile DRAM package designed for Ultra HD, large-screen devices. The 8GB mobile DRAM package utilizes four of 16Gb LPDDR4 memory chips and 10nm-class 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 VP of memory sales and marketing at Samsung. "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."

The new Samsung 8GB LPDDR4 operates at up to 4,266Mbps, twice as fast as DDR4 DRAM for PCs working typically at 2,133Mbps per pin, the company said. Assuming a 64-bit (x64) wide memory bus, this can be viewed as transmitting over 34GBs of data per second.

The Samsung 8GB LPDDR4 DRAM provides much more efficient power consumption thanks to its use of the latest 10nm-class process technology and Samsung's proprietary low-power circuit design, the company indicated. This circuit design enables the memory chip to double the capacity of the company's 20nm-class 4GB DRAM package, while consuming approximately the same amount of power.

The 8GB LPDDR4 package has XYZ dimensions of under 15mm by 15mm by 1.0mm, which satisfies space requirements of ultra slim mobile devices. Using a DRAM package thinner than 1.0mm enables stacking the package together with UFS memory or a mobile application processor, depending on device manufacturers' preferences, which will allow further space savings on the PCB.
