Samsung announces first lpddr5 memory




for use in smartphones
Samsung has announced its first memory based on the yet to be established lpddr5 standard. The manufacturer has developed the memory, but is not yet ready for mass production of the component.

Samsung lpddr5 memory It is an 8Gbit module, reports Samsung . The lpddr5 memory can pump through 6.4 Gbit / s, an increase compared to the 4.3 Gbit / s of the current lpddr4x modules. In addition, Samsung has increased the number of banks from eight to sixteen. In addition, the memory has a deep sleep function to reduce power consumption when the device is not using the memory. That should save half of the power that lpddr4x memory uses.

Samsung will produce this first generation of lpddr5 memory in an unspecified process between 10nm and 20nm. Presumably this is 16nm-finfet. The manufacturer puts eight of these chips together and will sell lpddr5 as 8GB. When that happens, the South Korean company does not report. It only wants to say that it will happen ‘in line with the demand from customers worldwide’. Samsung anticipates that manufacturers will use the lpddr5 memory in smartphones and car systems.
