August 11, 2023 – In an exciting development today, SK Hynix has officially unveiled its latest innovation, ushering in a new era of memory technology for mobile devices. The company proudly introduces the 24GB LPDDR5X DRAM package, poised to transform the landscape of smartphones and similar portable gadgets.
This cutting-edge LPDDR5X memory package operates within the voltage range of 1.01 to 1.12 volts, adhering to the standards set by the International Semiconductor Standardization Organization (JEDEC). The defining feature of this memory marvel is its lightning-fast data processing speed, boasting an impressive 68GB per second. To put this into perspective, envision the seamless transfer of a staggering 13 Full HD movies in just a single second.
SK Hynix has been at the forefront of innovation, with its recent foray into mass production marking another significant stride. The distinguished smartphone manufacturer, OPPO, has been quick to embrace this technological marvel. Their latest flagship smartphone, the “OnePlus Ace 2 Pro,” proudly incorporates the 24GB LPDDR5X DRAM, ensuring a future-forward and seamless user experience.
Central to this breakthrough is the adoption of the HKMG (High-K Metal Gate) process. This intricate methodology involves the integration of a high-K dielectric on the transistors within the DRAM, achieving a delicate balance between insulation and capacitance enhancement. The outcome is two-fold: not only does it bolster memory speed, but it also significantly curtails power consumption. It’s noteworthy that SK Hynix embarked on the implementation of the HKMG process on mobile DRAM in November of the preceding year, marking a global first, and culminating in the successful mass production of LPDDR5X DRAM.
