Samsung Launches Mass Production of LPDDR5 DRAM

Samsung Electronics announced the start of mass production of new 16Gb LPDDR5 mobile DRAM chips using ultraviolet lithography (EUV) technology.

The new chip is based on a third generation 10nm class (1z) process, featuring high performance and the largest capacity in a mobile memory.

At 6400Mbps, LPDDR5 is about 16% faster than the 12Gb LPDDR5 chips (operating at 5500Mbps) found in most flagship models today
mobile devices. In a 16 GB module, LPDDR5 memory is capable of transferring about 10 Full-HD movies of 5 GB each, or 51.2 GB of data per second.

The new LPDDR5 memory casing is about 30% thinner than its predecessor, allowing for even more functionality in the new slim smartphones with 5G and multiple
cameras, as well as in thin devices with a folding screen. LPDDR5 allows for 16 GB modules from eight chips, while in the previous 1y technology for obtaining modules
a similar capacity required twelve chips (eight 12 Gigabit chips and four 8 Gigabit chips).

The production line Samsung Pyeongtaek Line 2 is located in the South Korean city of Pyeongtaek, covers an area of ​​more than 128,900 square meters. m. Today it is the largest in the world
semiconductor manufacturing.
