Someone might need to tell Samsung that CES is over because it’s been busting out new products left and right. Today, Samsung introduced two high-density memory storage solutions—a 64-gigabyte (GB) moviNAND memory device and a 32GB micro secure digital (microSD) memory card—to satisfy mobile enthusiasts everywhere.
Samsung says its “memory solutions” are based on the company’s advanced 32 gigabit (Gb) NAND flash. The 64GB moviNAND, which measures 1.4mm in height, features 16 30nm-class 32Gb MLC NAND chips and a controller, while the 17-die stack was achieved by using 30-micron thick chips and advanced package technology. Samsung’s current proprietary embedded memory, moviNAND, is now available in 64GB, 32GB, 16GB, 8GB and 4GB densities.
“Samsung’s high-density memory solutions bring the storage capacity levels of computing systems to small, mobile devices,” said Dong-Soo Jun, executive vice president, memory marketing, Samsung Electronics. “The 64GB embedded memory, moviNAND, and the 32GB microSD card each greatly expand the data storage density of mobile devices, meeting customers’ memory requirements and ushering in a new era of mobile and IT device capacity growth.”
Samsung says its new 64GB moviNAND has been in mass production from December 2009, while its 32GB microSD is just now being sampled with OEMs, with mass production expected next month.
