JEDEC, which is responsible for standardizing semiconductor devices, announced the completion of work on the LPDDR5 (Low Power Double Data Rate 5) RAM standard. The new type of RAM will be used in smartphones, mini-computers and thin laptops. In comparison with LPDDR4 it has increased throughput and improved power efficiency.
The speed of the LPDDR5 chips, according to the new standard will be 6400 Mbit / s against 3200 Mbit / s for the first LPDDR4, and their capacity will vary in the range from 2 to 32 GB. Note that Samsung Electronics reported on the successful development of chips LPDDR5 last year, presenting two types of chips: with a speed of 6400 Mbps and a voltage of 1.1 V, as well as 5500 Mbps and a voltage of 1.05 V.
The massive use of LPDDR5 RAM in commercial devices will begin this year. Additional information on the new standard is available on the JEDEC website .
