Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd is shipping its 32Gbyte moviNAND, the highest density embedded memory card using advanced 30nm-class process technology.

Use of high-density embedded memory improves the performance of high-end phones and other mobile consumer electronics when processing and storing large amounts of multimedia content such as videos, video games and TV broadcasts.

According to Samsung, the 32Gbyte moviNAND is the first embedded memory card to use 32Gbit NAND devices produced with 30nm-class process technology. The Samsung card doubles the density of the previous generation of moviNAND that is now being produced with 16Gbit 40nm-class NAND chips.

Each 32Gbyte moviNAND device incorporates eight Samsung 30nm-class 32Gbit NAND chips, MMC controller and firmware.

Samsung's 30nm-class moviNAND is also available in 16Gbyte, 8Gbyte and 4Gbyte densities.

Samsung's proprietary moviNAND observes the embedded MMC (eMMC) standard, and uses a high-speed interface that was jointly developed by JEDEC and MMCA (MultiMediaCard Association). The most recent specification (eMMC ver 4.3) includes a power-on boot feature that shortens boot-up time and a sleep command to reduce power consumption.
