September 29, 2011 — Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. developed a monolithic 4Gb low-power double-data-rate 3 (LPDDR3) memory device on 30nm-class wafer processing technology. The LPDDR3 DRAM supports faster processors, higher-resolution displays, and 3D graphics for mobile applications such as smartphones and tablet PCs.
Samsung introduced the technology at the eighth annual Samsung Mobile Solutions Forum held at the Westin Taipei. The company also introduced a 32nm dual-core application processor, Exynos 4212; an embedded 8-die memory package; and advanced CMOS image sensors, including a 1/8.2-inch 1.2 Megapixel (Mp) imager and a 1/2.3-inch 16Mp high-sensitivity imager.
The 4Gb LPDDR3 DRAM can transfer data at up to 1,600Mbps, approximately 1.5x faster than the industry
