Samsung Mass Producing 10 nm Class High-Performance 128-Gbit 3-bit MLC NAND Flash

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced memory technology, announced today that it has begun mass producing a 128-gigabit (Gb), 3-bit multi-level-cell (MLC) NAND memory chip using 10 nanometer (nm)-class process technology this month. The highly advanced chip will enable high-density memory solutions such as embedded NAND storage and solid state drives (SSDs).

"By introducing next-generation memory storage products like the 128Gb NAND chip, Samsung is extremely well situated to meet growing global customer needs," said Young-Hyun Jun, executive vice president, memory sales & marketing, Device Solutions Division, Samsung Electronics. "The new chip is a critical product in the evolution of NAND flash, one whose timely production will enable us to increase our competitiveness in the high density memory storage market."

Intel 14 nm Silicon Fab Development in Progress

Intel will be capable making chips on the 14 nanometer silicon fabrication process, in 18-inch diameter wafers, "in two years," as development of the technology and machinery to make it happen is making good progress, according to company CTO Justin Rattner. He noted that Intel's aggressive tech advancement will keep Moore's Law relevant for at least the next 10 years. By the end of 2013, Intel's D1X Fab in Oregon, Fab 42 in Arizona, in the US, and Fab 24 in Ireland will begin producing batches of simple chips such as P1272 and P1273 series SoCs. After 14 nm, development for 10 nm, 7 nm, and 5 nm will follow, in order.
