Samsung 32GB moviNAND Ship

Samsung today said it has started shipping a 32GB version of its all-in-one moviNAND flash memory. The technology uses a very small, dense 30 nanometer (nm) manufacturing process to stack eight 4GB memory chips together along with a built-in controller chip and an MMC interface to connect it to the rest of a device. Samsung claims the process stores twice as much data as a similar package built using 40nm assembly.

The Korean company says the same technology will be available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB versions. It doesn't name prices or customers, but does say the new moviNAND is meant primarily for "high-end phones" and other handheld devices that need a large amount of storage for games and videos without significantly increasing their size.

While no connection is made to Apple, the company has been one of Samsung's more significant customers and is rumored to be using Samsung memory for the next iPhone alongside flash from Toshiba.
