The tech giant said in August last year that it expected to invest $7 billion over the next three years to expand its NAND memory chip
production in China's northwestern city of Xi'an, but had not specified a future schedule.
But Samsung gave a bullish outlook on the memory chip
industry saying that demand and market conditions will remain stable for flash memory chips
while new data centers will continue to drive growth for memory devices call DRAM.
The tech major has reportedly signed deals with local manufacturing companies to set up processing equipment and tools for 3-D NAND flash memory chips
at its chip production line, called Line 17 Phase 2, in the Hwaseong City.
Samsung is still on the list of initial memory chip
suppliers (for new iPhones)," the source said.
The two companies benefited from a rise in DRAM and NAND flash memory chip
prices after the market bottomed in 2008, Gartner said.
Hynix has said it plans next year to build a plant that uses newer technology to make chips out of wafers measuring 12 inches in diameter, and boost production of dynamic random access memory chips
- or DRAM - by 40 percent.
It will also provide customers with high-speed-data-programming and low power consumption when the most suitable combination of memory chips
is chosen for the customer's application.
The company says the use of the DDR format improves the performance of its graphics memory chip
by two and a half times, enabling the chip to deliver smoother and faster 3D images than other graphics memory chips
Recognized as one of the fastest growing global brands, Samsung Electronics is a leading producer of digital TVs, memory chips
, mobile phones and TFT-LCDs.
The research team has successfully embedded a powerful magnetic memory chip
on a flexible plastic material, and this malleable memory chip
will be a critical component for the design and development of flexible and lightweight devices.
Now, researchers are striving to recast electronic memory chips
by taking advantage of this material.
The industry-standard 128-megabit dynamic random access memory chip
rose to $3.
Samsung Electronics Co claims it has developed the world's first prototype 1 Gb flash memory chip
for use in next-generation digital multimedia devices.
Now Fujitsu Laboratories has developed a SSD that enables read/write commands for each flash memory chip
directly from software.
The materials achieved switching speeds between 10 and 30 nanoseconds, which are in the ballpark for a useful memory chip
, Kanwal says.
