Samsung talks about work on the world’s first 200-layer NAND chips

During the event dedicated to Samsung’s Q2 financial results, company representatives talked about their progress on 200-layer V-NAND flash memory chips. These will be the first chips of this kind in the entire industry.

And according to the approved 10-year plan, we are working on the next generation V-NAND chip,” said Mr. Khan.

Samsung is improving its V-NAND flash memory technologies to secure its leadership and sharpen competition with its closest competitor, US company Micron, which released the world’s first 176-layer NAND chips last November. In the second half of the year, Samsung plans to announce SSDs based on 176-layer V-NAND chips, which, according to the developer, will receive the industry’s smallest memory cells.
