Samsung starts manufacturing Advanced 64GB memory storage for smartphones and tablets
Samsung, one of the popular player in the smartphone and tablet arena and the world’s renowned OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) introduces an all new Advanced embedded multimedia card (eMMC) of 64GB storage for the upcoming smartphones and tablets. The new embedded memory storage packs in a slim design using a 10 nanometer (nm)-class process technology. The all new 64GB eMMC Pro Class 2000 measures 11.5mm by 13mm, which has about 20 percent reduction in size over the conventional embedded memory form factor (12mm by 16mm).
On introducing the new 64GB storage solution, Myungho Kim, vice president of Memory marketing, Device Solutions, Samsung Electronics states;
“The new high-speed, small form factor eMMC reinforces Samsung’s technology leadership in storage memory solutions. We look forward to expanding our line-up of embedded memory solutions in conjunction with the new chip’s design, in pursuing a system-level adoption of application processors and other key components that form the foundation for the most advanced mobile platforms. This will allow us to better attend to time-to-market demands enabling the design of more convenient features for next-generation mobile applications.”
The new memory chip has a random writing speed of 2,000 IOPS (input/output per second) and a random reading speed of 5,000 IOPS. The new 64GB chip also comes with sequential read and write speeds of 260 megabytes per second (MB/s) and 50MB/s respectively. Samsung also claims that the new eMMC is up to 10 times faster than a class 10 external memory card that reads at 24MB/s and writes at 12MB/s.
Well, these days 64GB internal storage is not very common in all the smartphones and tablets but of course this new chip is going to be packed in the upcoming devices. The new chip is going to enhance the performance by 30 percent as compared to the chips packed in the presently available devices.
The new 64GB eMMC chip is going to be packed in the upcoming devices from next year after submitting for the standardisation.
