Samsung Electronics has started producing its first NAND flash memory chips on an advanced process, a move that will help lower the cost of memory cards for consumers in time for the year-end shopping season, according to an analyst.
South Korea’s Samsung has started producing memory chips on a 70 nanometer (nm) process technology, the most advanced in the industry for this type of memory, it said Monday.
