Samsung today announced that it has now begun volume production of an ultra-fast embedded memory for smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices in 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB densities. The new Samsung eMMC (embedded multimedia card) Pro Class 1500 delivers the industry’s fastest speeds for an embedded memory device, reading data sequentially at up to 140 MB/s and writing it at up to 50 MB/s. For random reading and writing, it can process up to 3500/1500 IOPS, four times the speed of previous eMMC solutions.
The ultra high-speed storage device uses Samsung’s 64-gigabit (Gb) NAND with a toggle DDR 2.0 interface based on the company’s latest 20nm process technology. The new eMMC’s fully managed NAND memory comes with its own high performance controller and intelligent flash management firmware.
To meet the market need for thinner designs for high-end mobile devices, Samsung offers the new eMMCs in two, four- and eight-die stacks with the largest capacity of 64 GB’s being only 1.2 millimeters thick.
Samsung eMMC Pro Class 1500 is the first to support the latest JEDEC e-MMC v4.5 specification that standardizes more features to improve performance, efficiency, security, and reliability such as: a SDR-200 Interface (200 MHz, 200 MB/s Max Bandwidth), cache handling, dynamic handling, file sanitizing and power-off notification.
Featuring highly reliable boot code and application storage, Samsung’s 64GB eMMC can store 16,000 MP3 files in a single package that weighs only 0.6 grams.
