NAND chips find their way into all sorts of computer accessories and storage devices. The NAND memory is often used in flash drives and memory cards. Samsung has announced that it is first to go into production with a new class of NAND chips.
The NAND chips are built on a 30nm process and use 3-bit per cell MLC technology. The 3-bit design offers up to 50% more efficient data storage compared to the 2-bit NAND chips commonly used today.
Samsung reports that the new NAND chips will be first used in USB drives and in microSD cards for data storage. There is no word on when we can expect to see products using the new NAND on the market.
