Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd has announced that it began mass production of what it claims as the industry's first 2GB, low power double-data-rate 3 (LPDDR3) memory. It uses 30nm class technology and is targeted at next-generation mobile devices, stated the company.

Samsung started mass production of the DRAM chip, only 10 months after it began producing what it says is the industry's first 30nm-class based 2GB LPDDR2 memory in October last year. The solution uses four LPDDR3 chips stacked together. According to the company, LPDDR3 is needed for fast processors, high resolution displays and 3D graphics in tablets and smartphones.

The 2GB LPDDR3 DRAM can transfer data at up to 1600Mb/s per pin, which is nearly 50 percent faster than a LPDDR2 DRAM. And on the package level, it provides a data transmission rate up to 12.8GB/s, which will enable playing of full HD video content in real-time on smartphones and tablets. The high data transfer rates allows LPDDR3 to exceed support for full HD video payback on screens exceeding the current market available four-inch measurement and enable real-time viewing without downloading the content for the full HD visual experience, added Samsung.
