Samsung mass production of new LPDDR5 DRAM chips(electronics manufacturing expo news)

22 Jul 2019

July 19, according to foreign media reports, with the speed of wireless networks and mobile CPUs faster, the RAM speed used in portable electronics manufacturing expo devices may actually become a performance bottleneck, preventing them from processing data at peak speed.

Samsung is making every effort to improve the performance of next-generation mobile devices. The company announced today that it has begun mass production of 12 Gigabit LPDDR5 DRAM chips to "support 5G and AI functions in future smartphones."

Samsung's move is very important, especially as the company plays an important role in providing memory to other mobile electronics manufacturing expo device manufacturers. Samsung's DRAM can be found not only in its own Galaxy series of mobile phones and tablets, but also on Apple's iPhone and its rival Android devices.

Therefore, the performance improvement of Samsung memory chips will affect the flagship products of many companies, and indicates that in the near future, all companies will advance in the general direction.

The new LPDDR5 chip delivers a data rate of 5,500 Mbps, which is about 30% higher than the LPDDR4X (4266 Mbps) used in today's high-end smartphones, including the first 5G smartphones based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor.

Samsung said the new DRAM will support ultra-high-definition video recording and AI-driven machine learning, greatly increasing the battery life of the device, reducing power consumption by 30% compared to previous DRAM.

The higher speed of LPDDR5 will depend on the next-generation mobile processor, which can transfer 44GB of data per second, enough to store 12 1080p quality movies. To achieve this speed, Samsung bundled eight 12 Gigabit LPDDR5 chips into a 12GB chip module package.

Samsung said that after the production of 6GB chip modules last month, the process will begin later this month. The company plans to introduce 16 Gigabit electronics manufacturing expo LPDDR5 chips next year.
