Micron a leader in the manufacture of advanced semiconductor solutions, has this week announced the arrival of its Phase Change Memory (PCM) for smartphones and tablets.
The new Phase Change Memory created by Micron will provide mobile devices with improved performance, faster boot times and lower power consumption. Watch the video after the jump to see Phase Change Memory explained.
Micron says the new 45-nanometer (nm) Phase Change Memory is an industry first for mobile devices. The Micron PCM features a 1 gigabit (Gb) PCM plus 512 megabit (Mb) LPDDR2 combined together in a multichip solution.
“PCM provides enhanced boot time, simplifies software development and boosts performance with overwrite capability. It also provides very low power consumption and extremely high reliability. In addition, the design-optimizing shared interface between LPDDR2 and PCM is fully compliant with JEDEC industry standards. Micron’s 45nm PCM solution is currently targeted for utilization in feature phones, with a future roadmap aimed at addressing smartphones and media tablets.”
Unfortunately no information on worldwide availability has been revealed as yet, but as soon as information is announced on the new Phase Change Memory technology we will keep you updated.
