Samsung is Producing 2GB LPDDR3 DRAM and 128GB eMMC Memory Cards for Mobile Devices

128GB eMMC MemorySamsung has commenced the mass production 2GB LPDDR3 DRAM modules for mobile devices, in less than a year after it started the production of DDR2 modules. LPDDR3 is needed to keep up with latest high-performance processors and avoid bottlenecks. These chips would also allow for advanced 3D graphics representations on high resolution display. A LPDDR3 DRAM module is capable of transmitting nearly 13GB per second of data, which is 50 percent faster than the LPDDR2

The South Korean firms have also started the production of 128GB memory card for mobile devices, which still adheres to JEDEC eMMC v4.5 standard. Besides the increased capacity, the new storage chip is also faster. Samsung are using 20nm manufacturing process to keep dimension and power requirements low. Hopefully, smartphones with these high performance components will be available in the not-too-distant future.
