Samsung begins mass production of 12Gb LPDDR5 Mobile DRAM

Samsung Electronics has announced that it has begun mass producing the industry’s first 12-gigabit (Gb) LPDDR5 mobile DRAM, as well as its plans to mass-produce 12-gigabyte (GB) LPDDR5 packages.

The new 12Gb LPDDR5 mobile DRAM is designed for premium flagship smartphones with 5G connectivity and AI features, and is built on Samsung’s latest 2nd-gen 10-nanometer (nm) class process. It boasts a data rate of 5,500 megabits per second (Mb/s), the 12Gb LPDDR5 is approximately 1.3 times faster than previous mobile memory (LPDDR4X, 4266Mb/s) that is found in today’s high-end smartphones.


Samsung also announced that it will start mass-producing 12-gigabyte (GB) LPDDR5 packages later this month, combining eight of the 12Gb chips. It is able to transfer 44GB of data, or about 12 full-HD (3.7GB-sized) movies, in only a second. It also uses up to 30% less power than its predecessor by integrating a new circuit design with enhanced clocking, training and low-power feature.

Samsung also expects to develop a 16Gb LPDDR5 in 2020.
