Samsung has developed a new line flash memory. These belong to the “20nm” class category for flash memory productions. Samsung Electronics, as we all know as the world’s No.1 chip maker, announced their mass production of the new $10 billion chip line. This new development will sharply lower the productions costs of the flash memory chips and also help the company by stifling their rivals. The new chip fabrication facility is more advanced which can produce chips with 20-nanometre class processing technology. The new chips will allow the circuits on a chip making them smaller, cheaper , powerful and very energy efficient.
“The new line won’t have any immediate impact on the supply side, as it will take some nine months to fully raise capacity run rates, but it shows Samsung’s attempt to take more share in the flash chip market,” said Song Myung-sup, an analyst at HI Investment & Securities.
