SK hynix, the world’s second-biggest memory chipmaker, said Wednesday it has successfully developed an advanced 6-gigabit capacity chip with Low Power DDR3. “By applying a finer 20-nanometer processing technology, we developed the high-end memory chip to be used in value-added mobile devices. The chip consumes less power and has an expanded data storage capacity,” the firm said in a press release.
SK hynix, the semiconductor affiliate of the SK Group, has begun providing chip samples to its clients. The chipmaker supplies flash memory chips to Apple and mobile chips to major Chinese smartphone manufacturers. According to the firm, the speed of the chip is 1,866 Mbps. It can handle a maximum of 7.4-gigabyte per second in a single channel. In a dual channel, the chip is enabled to handle 14.8-gigabyte data.
