Samsung 30nm 2GB LPDDR3 mobile memory

Samsung Electronics has begun mass producing 2GB and low power double-data-rate 3 (LPDDR3) memory using 30nm-class technology for next-generation mobile devices.

The new LPDDR3, which marks the first time a 2GB LPDDR3 density is available in one space-saving package, utilizes four LPDDR3 chips stacked together, the vendor said. LPDDR3 is needed for fast processors, high resolution displays and 3D graphics in tablets and smartphones.

The new 2GB LPDDR3 DRAM can transfer data at up to 1600 megabits per second (Mbps) per pin, which is approximately 50% faster than a LPDDR2 DRAM. And on the package level, it provides a data transmission rate up to 12.8 gigabytes per second (GB/s), which will enable playing of full HD video content in real-time on smartphones and tablets, according to Samsung. The high data transfer rates allows LPDDR3 to exceed support for full HD video payback on screens exceeding the current market available four-inch measurement and enable real-time viewing without downloading the content for the full HD visual experience.
