Samsung Electronics said Tuesday it has developed a new mobile dynamic random access memory (DRAM) chip optimized for 5G wireless networks and the artificial intelligence (AI) features of smartphones. JEDEC, the standards group for the microelectronics industry, is still forecasting the release of the full DDR5 standardsfor later this year. This is the first 10nm class 8Gb LPDDR5 chip, successor to the 8Gb LPDDR4 chip that was launched back in 2014.

Samsung has developed a new RAM module for use in future smartphones, and it's created to help make phones with 5G technology and more powerful artificial intelligence a reality.

“This development of 8Gb LPDDR5 represents a major step forward for low-power mobile memory solutions, ” said Jinman Han, senior vice president of Memory Product Planning & Application Engineering at Samsung Electronics.

Earlier, al-Assaad also said that he counted at least 20 wounded at the scene of the airstrike, including children. The Assad regime now controls 61 per cent of the country's territory, according to the Observatory.


The new hardware has a data rate of 6,400 Mb/s, which is 1.5x faster than mobile DRAM chips used in today's flagship mobile devices. The 10nm-class LPDDR5 DRAM will be available in two bandwidths - 6,400Mbps at a 1.1 operating voltage (V) and 5,500Mbps at 1.05V - for smartphones and automotive systems. Decreasing the distance between components on a chip saves power, while also speeding up performance. Samsung claims this performance advancement has been made possible through several architectural enhancements. With this the new memory chips can attain higher data transfer speeds while consuming lesser power consumption. When in active mode, the chip can automatically lower its operating voltage to sync with the operating speed of the application processor.

Samsung has also worked on doubling the number of memory banks, the subdivisions within a DRAM cell, from 8 to 16, and thereby resulting in substantial higher speed with moderate power consumption. Its deep sleep mode needs about half as much power as LPDDR4X, so a 30% power saving in general usage is to be expected.

Samsung did not provide a timeline for when it expects these chips to enter mass production and ultimately end up in consumer devices. They have already selected their factory in Pyeongtaek, Korea as the production site once they being mass production.
