Just recently, EDN Asia has published a report about Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. unveiling its 45nm embedded flash (eFlash) logic process. The South Korean electronics juggernaut looks like it's on a roll, as the company has also announced that it is now producing high-performance solid state drives (SSD) and new ranges of LCD and AMOLED displays.

The SM843T solid state drive offers nearly 1TB of memory storage.

Enterprise SSDs
The SM843T SSD was designed for high-performance servers and storage in next-generation data centres, including Big Data systems.

The SM843T strengthens Samsung's SATA interface enterprise SSD product line-up. Offering up to 960GB of memory storage for faster and more efficient Big Data systems and cloud computing environments, the SM843T offers performance level fit for SATA 6.0 SSDs.

The SM843T protects the most recent data being processed from a sudden power interruption. The new line-up also boasts of high performance and endurance levels, respectively, reaching up to 98,000 (sustained) random read IOPS (Input/Output Operations Per Second) and 20,000 sequential TBW (Terabytes Written) with the 960GB model, while providing an ideal environment for Big Data systems.

State-of-the-art displays
Samsung will be showcasing several mobile to extra-large-sized display prototypes at the Society for Information Display's Display Week 2013, May 21-23, 2013, in the Vancouver Convention Centre.

The world's first mass-produced 4.99-inch Full HD mobile AMOLED display offers the world's broadest colour gamut with a 94% average rate of reproduction for the Adobe RGB colour space. The Adobe RGB standard is about 30% broader than general sRGB standards.

Samsung's Diamond Pixel technology will also be highlighted during the event. The technology is based on the idea that the human retina reacts more to green than other colours, places more green than red and blue pixels in the pixel structure of AMOLED display panels.

With Diamond Pixel, Samsung's Full HD AMOLED display can provide text messages 2.2 times clearer than HD (1280×720) displays.

Samsung Display's exhibit of an 85-inch ultra HD TV panel features local-dimming control in a direct LED-based LCD panel. The panel can save 30% of typical LED BLU power consumption. Its local-dimming control enables vivid colour rendering, 80% brightness uniformity and enhanced contrast ratio.

Samsung is also exhibiting a 10.1-inch WQXGA (2560 x 1600) LCD for tablets and a 13.3-inch WQXGA+ (3200 x 1800) LCD for notebooks, which each can deliver 30% greater power-savings than that of existing LCD tablet displays, by decreasing the number of driver circuits and increasing the efficiency of the LED BLU.

Also, Samsung is spotlighting a 23-inch multi-touch LCD display that can detect 10 touch points simultaneously. The prototype enables playing of the piano with exceptional finesse, or drawing a highly detailed picture on a monitor or a tablet.
