Samsung has unveiled what it claims to be the first 20nm-based 12Gbit LPDDR4 (low power, double data rate 4) mobile DRAM. The LPDDR4 mobile memory is an ideal fit for smartphones, tablets, ultra-slim PCs, digital appliances and automotive devices.

The 12Gbit LPDDR4 brings large capacity and high speed, offering energy efficiency, reliability and ease of design for developing next-generation mobile devices.

Compared to the 20nm-based 8Gbit LPDDR4, the 12Gbit version is 30 per cent faster at 4,266Mbit/s, and is twice as fast as DDR4 DRAM for PCs, while consuming 20 per cent less energy. In addition, it is over 50 per cent easier to produce than the 20nm-based 8Gbit LPDDR4.

The 12Gbit LPDDR4 enables 3GB or 6GB of mobile DRAM in a single package using just two chips and four chips respectively, while also offering a 6GB LPDDR4 solution. In next-generation flagship devices, 6GB of LPDDR4 mobile DRAM will allow consumers to multi-task seamlessly within the latest operating system environments. The 6GB package can easily fit into the same space used for 3GB LPDDR4 packages currently available, allowing design compatibility and manufacturing productivity in mobile devices.
