Samsung begins production of faster, smaller 64GB embedded flash memory for mobile devices
Samsung has announced that they have started producing new 64GB embedded flash memory for Smartphones and Tablets. The new Samsung Embedded Multimedia Card (eMMC) Pro Class 2000 delivers up to 260 MB/s (megabytes per second) sequential reading speeds and up to 50 MB/s sequential writing speeds. It offers random write speed of 2,000 IOPS (input/output per second) and a random read speed of 5,000 IOPS. These are up to 2 times faster than the eMMC Pro Class 1500 and up to 10 times faster than the normal class 10 memory cards.
These memory cards would let you store and capture HD videos and offers improved performance in web browsing, gaming and running rich applications. It uses 10nm-class technology and comes in dimensions of 11.5 x 13 mm, 20% smaller than the normal flash memory chips that come in dimensions of 12mm by 16mm.
It would be submitted to industry standards body JEDEC, (Joint Electron Engineering Council) next year for adoption as an industry standard.
