A new breakthrough!

All-in-one package?

XDA-Developers reports that Samsung has recently introduced and has begun the mass production of the world's first UFS-based multi-chip package (uMCP) that combines the latest UFS 3.1 NAND flash storage and the company's fastest LPDDR5 RAM in a single chipset.

Samsung's new LPDDR5 uMCP is built upon our rich legacy of memory advancements and packaging know-how, enabling consumers to enjoy uninterrupted streaming, gaming, and mixed reality experiences even in lower-tier devices, said Young-soo Sohn, vice president of the Memory Product Planning Team at Samsung Electronics.

As 5G-compatible devices become more mainstream, we anticipate that our latest multichip package innovation will accelerate the market transition to 5G and beyond, and help to bring the metaverse into our everyday lives a lot faster.

By combining the two in one chipset, the new package frees up space inside the phone for other features like 5G antennas, speakers, or even an audio jack. An all-in-one solution can also be cheaper to produce that could potentially be passed on to consumers. It could also result in mid-range smartphones obtaining flagship hardware.

Samsung claims that the new uMCP is capable of reaching a 50 percent improvement in DRAM performance from 17GB per second to 25GB/s and a double of the NAND flash performance from 1.5GB/s to 3GB/s over the previous LPDDR4X-based UFS 2.2 solution.

The new package comes in a range of memory capacities from 6GB to 12GB of RAM and storage options from 128GB to 512GB of storage.

Samsung also says that the company has already completed testing with several global smartphone manufacturers and expects the first uMCP chips to hit the market starting this month.
