Samsung creates new flash memory chip
30 nanometer 64-gigabit NAND Flash
Samsung unveiled a 64-gigabit NAND flash memory chip based on 30 nanometer technology designed to increase capacity without losing reliability and yet decrease the product's size.
This world first technology is part of a long line of similar achievements over the past 8 years, with memory density doubling every year since 1999. Samsung said, "The flash memory device represents a major leap forward in the move to higher density flash storage solutions at a time of exploding demand for flash as the main storage medium in computing and digital applications."
The chips will be used in digital music devices, digital cameras or mobile phones. The company plans to begin production of the chip in 2009.
