Chip will allow makers to create thinner, more energy efficient phones
Samsung has announced that it has begun mass production of its second-generation 10-nanometer class 16GB LPDDR4X DRAM mobile chip for premium smartphones and mobile applications.
LPDDR4X (also known as Low Power, Double Data Rate, 4X) is the fourth generation of low power DDR DRAM technology.
Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek highlights that the latest version of the DDR DRAM’s chip’s enhancement brings not only lower voltage, but also allows for more power efficient memory and longer battery life.
With most mobile DRAM chips already using the first generation LPDDR4X mobile DRAM chip in flagship smartphones, there are some notable improvements with the second-generation chip.
Power reduction for the second-generation Samsung LPDDR4X mobile DRAM chip is reduced by up to 10 percent while keeping the 4,266 megabits per second data rate.
