Samsung starts mass production of ePoP memory for smartphones




Samsung Electronics has announced that it has started mass production of the industry’s first high-density ePoP memory for flagship smartphones.

Samsung’s ePoP (embedded package on package) memory is a single memory package that consists of a 3GB LPDDR3 DRAM, 32GB eMMC (embedded multi-media card), and a controller.

Before ePoP, conventional PoP packages consist of the mobile processor and DRAM, with the eMMC located in a separate package which takes up space. By utilizing the ePoP’s “one-package” design, smartphone manufacturers can now save some space and use it for other key components like a bigger battery.


 

The ePoP memory has a maximum measurement of 225 square millimeters (15x15mm) and meets the semiconductor package height ceiling of 1.4 millimeters (mm).

“By offering our new high-density ePoP memory for flagship smartphones, Samsung expects to provide its customers with significant design benefits, while enabling faster and longer operation of multi-tasking features,” Jeeho Baek, Senior Vice President of Memory Marketing at Samsung Electronics.
