SK hynix LPDDR5T DRAM for Snapdragon Gen 3

Benefits of LPDDR5T DRAM

SK Hynix has revealed that it has successfully validated the compatibility of its lightning-fast LPDDR5T DRAM with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Gen 3 Mobile System-on-Chip.

SK Hynix has released the world’s fastest LPDDR5T DRAM, and it is now compatible with Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon Gen 3 mobile system on a chip (SoC).

SK Hynix has issued the following press release to announce that it has begun the process of commercializing the LPDDR5T (Low Power Double Data Rate 5 Turbo), which has a speed of 9.6Gbps and is the world’s fastest DRAM for mobile devices.

The firm stated that it has achieved the validation that the LPDDR5T is compatible with Qualcomm Technologies’ new Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform. This is the industry’s first case for such a product to be certified by the American company, and it is expected to represent the beginning of widespread use of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 Mobile Platform.

*LPDDR stands for low power dynamic random access memory. It is a kind of DRAM designed for mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, with the goal of reducing the amount of power that is consumed while still operating at a low voltage. The most recent information pertains to the seventh generation, which follows in the footsteps of the sequence that culminates with 1, 2, 3, 4, 4X, 5, and 5X. Prior to the creation of the 8th generation LPDDR6, SK hynix has introduced a newly designed version known as LPDDR5T. This version is an updated version of the 7th generation product known as 5X.

Following the conclusion of the development of the LPDDR5T in January, SK hynix has moved on with the process of validating its compatibility with other products with the assistance of Qualcomm Technologies. The fact that the procedure was successfully finished indicates that it is compatible with Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. After the validation process was successfully completed with Qualcomm Technologies, a pioneer in wireless communications goods and services, and other key mobile AP (Application Processor) suppliers, SK hynix anticipates the range of the LPDDR5T adoption to rise fast. This is because the validation process was successful.

The business has plans to release a device with a capacity of 16 gigabytes that will be a mix of numerous single LPDDR5T chips. The data processing speed of these chips is 77 gigabytes per second, which is the same as being able to process 15 full-length HD movies in one second. The Joint Electron Device Engineering Council, generally known as JEDEC, defined voltage norms ranging from 1.01 to 1.12 volts, and the LPDDR5T product operates at the lower end of this range, giving it an advantage in terms of power usage.

SK hynix implemented the HKMG (High-K Metal Gate) method, which resulted in a significant increase in both the speed and the power efficiency of their products. Because of the widespread implementation of this technology, the business anticipates that the LPDDR5T will capture a sizeable portion of the market well in advance of the launch of the LPDDR6 of the next generation.

  1. […] DDR5, which ushers in an entirely new era of memory technology, makes high overclocking a more stable choice than was possible with earlier generations of memory technology. On-die ECC ensures that DRAM components are more stable, an on-board PMIC ensures that power is balanced when and where it is required, and two independent 32-bit subchannels offer significant improvements in data efficiency for multi-core processors. […]

  2. […] SK Hynix introduced 300-layer NAND flash memory. After introducing its first 96-layer solution in 2018, SK hynix’s 321-layer 1 Tb TLC 4D NAND smashed records again. The company’s 4D NAND technology integrates chip size reduction, layer growth, reliability, and productivity innovations. […]
