According to Samsung Electronics they are shipping some 8 GB memory chip (the highest density embedded flash memory) to major mobile electronics manufacturers. Samsung's high-density moviNAND memory is made of four 50-nanometer, 16 Gigabit NAND flash memories, a high-speed MultiMediaCard (MMC) controller and associated firmware. It has the ability to store up to 2,000 songs, a lot of maps data for global positioning system (GPS), as well it permits virtually unlimited memory expansion. The moviNAND processes data at 52 megabytes per second, by means of the industry's fastest multimedia card interface. NAND flash can be instantly accessed via Samsung's moviNAND to a standardized MMC interface, so manufacturers using new memory solution are able to develop mobile phones more quickly and at less cost than with raw MLC NAND components.
Samsung's moviNAND providing twice the capacity and double the performance of the 4 GB version, is 10-20 percent smaller than other flash-based embedded memory card solutions.
Using Samsung's moviNAND solution gives the possibility of high-density, high-speed, low-noise interference and increased security, making it ideal for mobile handsets with high content services. Samsung is planning to begin mass producing of 8 GB moviNAND in the second quarter of this year.
