Samsung's uses tiny technology to make high capacity flash memory

Samsung has implemented their tiny (.03µm/30nm) chip processing technology to make huge strides in flash memory storage capacity, up to 128 gigs. With this amount of flash memory you can store 40 individual DNA profiles, 80 DVD movies, or 32,000 MP3s just to give you an idea of its potential. These are going into production in the second half of 2009. This is going to have ramifications throughout the digital world. It will affect media players, cameras, USB flash drives, mobile phones, DRAM anything that uses NAND flash chip technology. The capacities of these devices will grow without the products themselves growing. Sweet work, Samsung, keep putting the worlds manufactures to shame with your developments and I’ll keep buying more of your stock.
