Samsung begins making nanotechnology memory chips

September 10, 2004 – Samsung Electronics Co. has begun mass-production of chips manufactured with a 90nm design rule, claiming the chips are the first of their type in the world.

The nanotechnology allows Samsung Electronics to produce 512-megabit double-data-rate DRAM chips more efficiently, the company said in a statement.

Compared to a 0.1-micron design rule, the 90nm technology increases productivity by more than 40%, enabling Samsung Electronics to gain cost competitiveness, it said.

Last year, Samsung Electronics started mass-production of 2-gigabyte NAND-type flash memory with the 90nm design rule.
