Samsung starts mass production of memory chips to 20nm
Samsung , the Korean giant, is pleased to announce the start of mass production of memory chips made with its new 20nm Manufacturing process, which will increase the memory capacity of many types of devices.
The new 20nm manufacturing process, Samsung will Manufacture memory chips with capacities of 2GB (2-Gigabit or 256 Kilobytes) and 4GB (512KB), which will have an area 20% lower than current memory chips manufactured with the 30nm manufacturing process, Samsung.
The smaller size and greater density of these new memory chips allow the construction of memory modules of higher capacity, because that can use more memory chips per module, the latter very useful in devices such as smartphones and other.
The increase in areal density is not the only advantage of the memory chips to 20nm, they also require less voltage to operate reliably, which will be exploited in the manufacture of modules LPDDR2.
