Samsung starts mass production of 14-nm DRAM with EUV technology


Samsung Electronics, which is the world leader in advanced memory technology, has begun mass producing 14-nanometer (nm) DRAM (dynamic random-access memory) based on extreme ultraviolet (EUV) technology. Samsung said this is the industry’s smallest 14-nm DRAM.

Samsung had shipped EUV DRAM in March 2020. Now it has increased the number of EUV layers to five to deliver the most advanced DRAM process for its DDR5 solutions.

The EUV technology reduces repetitive steps in multi-patterning and improves patterning accuracy, resulting in better performance and greater yields as well as shortened development time.

Samsung says this is another technology milestone

Samsung said it expected the latest process to increase the productivity rate by 20% and reduce power consumption by nearly 20%.

DDR5 is aimed at the demands of compute-hungry, high-bandwidth workloads in supercomputing, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML), as well as data analytics applications.

“We have led the DRAM ...
