Samsung announced two high-density memory solutions, a 32GB microSD card and 64GB moviNAND for mobile devices. The new storage solutions will definitely be a relief for digital music and video lovers who wants to carry huge files in their mobile devices. The 64GB embedded memory, moviNAND, and the 32GB microSD memory card solutions bring the storage capacity levels of computing systems to small, mobile devices.

Samsung reported that the memory solutions are based on their advanced 32 gigabit (Gb) NAND flash. The 64GB moviNAND has a 1.4mm thickness, consists of 16 30nm-class 32Gb MLC NAND chips and a controller. The 17-die stack was achieved by using 30-micron thick chips and advanced package technology. Apart from the latest 64GB solution, Samsung moviNAND is also available in 64GB, 32GB, 16GB, 8GB and 4GB.

Coming to the 32GB microSD card, it consists of eight 32Gb NAND components and a controller and is just 1mm thick. Samsung used their advanced 30-nm class 32Gb NAND flash memory technology for this memory solution. Until now the highest capacity in microSD is the 16GB model which was based on 40nm-class 16Gb NAND.

Samsung’s 64GB moviNAND has been in mass production from December 2009 and the 32GB microSD is now being sampled with OEMs, with mass production expected next month. So wait for a couple of months to get a 32 microSD card for your latest handset mobiles. Even I’m waiting for it to upgrade my Nokia 5800 from 8GB to 32GB.
