Samsung V Nand memory and Moore's Law

Miscellaneous vloxas August 7, 2016 2 1
According to Moore's Law, computer power doubles every two years. Until recently, it seemed to fit, but it may soon also be like this? Samsung brings a new memory chip in mass production, which the storage capacity of computers can create even smaller and more efficient.

Moore's Law

Moore predicted years ago, the growth curve of computer technology. Gordon Moore, co-founder of Intel, said in 1965 that the capacity of processors in computers doubles every two years. From then until now appears to be wrong with the law. Many fear that the law will soon no longer be true, because one encounters new barriers. The progress of 1965 was primarily one of minituarisatie and filtering of known production techniques. But after the nano production, whereby chips are built molecule by molecule, people seem to meet up with physical boundaries: a few atoms under current, in heat or cold exhibit strange behavior. Also, in the minituariseren and refining memory gestoot on that physical limits.

V-Chip Samsung Nand

Samsung raises the bar yet again higher and comes with new memory chips. Which according to the company faster, smaller and have a larger capacity.
In an ordinary memory transistors are placed next to each other, on a two-dimensional manner. These layers are sometimes called 'stacked' in chips, but the layers are separate. With the new V-chip NAND Samsung provides a major advancement in storage capacity, increasing the capacity and speed of computer memory would greatly increase. The price of memory on the other hand would come down.
In the 3D V-Nand the various layers in the chip are also linked vertically. Another technology that Samsung developed earlier, "charge staircase flash ', prevents the cells from being destroyed communication with other layers of transistors in the chip. This increases the speed of the memory and allows the memory chip reliable. Through the communication between the different layers, these are the first 3D memory chips.
The V-NAND chips are according to Samsung 2 to 10 times more reliable than the chips which are now on the market. The company also says that the writing would be twice the fastest chips are already sold.

Mass production V-NAND

In August 2013 the South Korean technology company has announced that the first V Nand chip of 128 Gb is put into mass production and incorporated into new consumer products. They will be incorporated shortly in, among other SSDs. It is also the intention to build with the new technology chips with a higher capacity. The new technology will encourage the smartphone revolution even further. Portable computers continued in recent years have become increasingly powerful and sophisticated graphic but the memory remained rather stagnant, especially when compared to today's standards, for example video files.
On August 13, 2013 the first finished with V Nand chips were proposed. Samsung it processes provided for in Flash Memory for servers and data centers. The SSD Nand V-Chip is 20 percent more efficient and 40 percent more efficient in energy use. The first SSDs with V Nand chips are available in two capacities: 480 and 960 GB. The largest of 960 GB provides the most gains in reliability and energy efficiency. The speed of these SSDs is huge with approximately six gigabits per second.

Market Cycle technology introduction

Like any technology, the launch of V Nand likely to follow economic rather predictable curve that you can read the chart below.
The innovators are electronic 'hipsters'. The Innovator Group one sometimes associates with the young, higher income classes, and technology specialists. They may not see as first the added value of a new technology, but they are quickly willing to pay relatively common. The technology is new and scarce, and the high prices often serve mainly to recoup research. As the curve rise, prices fall slightly. The technology become integrated and used to or a good addition to previous technology by more and more people as superior. Usually, a technology already obsolete by new technologies when the 'late majority' purchase them. Laggards have very long maintained older technology.
