SEOUL, Korea (AVING) -- <Visual News> Samsung Electronics announced shipment of its 32-GB moviNAND, the highest density embedded memory card utilizing advanced 30-nanometer class process technology. Use of high-density embedded memory improves the performance of high-end phones and other mobile consumer electronics when processing and storing large amounts of multimedia content such as videos, video games and TV broadcasts.
The 32GB moviNAND is the first embedded memory card to use 32GB NAND devices produced with 30nm-class process technology. The new Samsung card doubles the density of the previous generation of moviNAND that is now being being produced with 16GB 40nm-class NAND chips.
Each 32GB moviNAND device incorporates eight Samsung 30nm-class 32Gb NAND chips, a multimedia card (MMC) controller and firmware. Samsung's 30nm-class moviNAND is also available in 16GB, 8GB and 4GB densities.
Meanwhile, the industry shipment forecast for high-density memory demand is constantly on the rise. According to research firm iSuppli, the shipment outlook for NAND flash used in 32GB and higher memory cards is expected to grow eight-fold from 120 million 16Gb equivalent units, which will account for 13 percent of global memory card shipments in 2009, to 950 million units − or 72 percent of the total cards shipped − by 2013.
