SK Hynix, the world’s No. 2 chipmaker, on Monday said it planned to mass produce 8-gigabit LPDDR3 mobile DRAM chips as early as the end of this year. Developed as the world’s first 8-gigabit product in its class, the LPDDR3 was created by applying 20-nanometer-class technology, and is more advanced than the 4-gigabit LPDDR3 being produced by Samsung Electronics.
SK Hynix’s newest product features high density, high speed and low power consumption, which together make for an ideal memory product, company officials said. “With the development of this high-density LPDDR3 using 20nm class, SK Hynix is now able to supply a top-performance product suitable for mobile devices to the market,” said senior vice president Richard Chin, the head of the firm’s global sales and marketing.
