SK hynix Goes Above & Past With World’s First 321-Layer & 1 Tb TLC NAND

SK hynix has simply unveiled the {industry}’s highest-layered NAND expertise with 321-layer design in as much as 1 Tb TLC packages.

SK hynix Unveils 321-Layer TLC NAND, 1 Tb Flash Tech To Hit Mass Manufacturing In 1H 2025

Press Launch: SK hynix Inc. showcased at this time the pattern of the 321-layer 4D NAND, making public the progress on its improvement of the {industry}’s first NAND with greater than 300 layers.

The corporate gave a presentation on the progress of the event of its 321-layer 1Tb TLC* 4D NAND Flash and displayed the samples on the Flash Reminiscence Summit (FMS) 2023** happening Aug. 8-10 in Santa Clara.

SK hynix is the primary within the {industry} to unveil the progress on the event of a NAND with greater than 300 layers intimately. The corporate plans to lift the extent of completion of the 321-layer product and begin mass manufacturing within the first half of 2025.

The corporate mentioned its technological competitiveness amassed from the success of the world’s highest 238-layer NAND, already in mass manufacturing, paved the best way for easy progress for the event of the 321-layer product. “With one other breakthrough to handle stacking limitations, SK hynix will open the period of NAND with greater than 300 layers and lead the market.”

The 321-layer 1Tb TLC NAND comes with a 59% enchancment in productiveness, in contrast with the sooner era of 238-layer 512Gb, because of the expertise improvement that enabled the stacking of extra cells and bigger storage capability on a single chip, that means the entire capability that may be produced on a single wafer elevated.

Because the introduction of ChatGPT which accelerated the expansion of the generative AI market, demand for high-performance and high-capacity reminiscence merchandise that may course of extra information at a quicker tempo is rising quickly.

Accordingly, on the FMS, SK hynix additionally launched next-generation NAND options optimized for such AI demand, together with the enterprise SSD adopting the PCIe Gen5 interface and UFS 4.0. The corporate expects these merchandise to attain industry-leading efficiency to totally meet the wants of the shoppers with a concentrate on excessive efficiency.

SK hynix additionally introduced that it has began the event of the next-generation PCIe Gen6 and UFS 5.0 with the improved expertise for resolution improvement that it acquired by means of these merchandise and expressed its dedication to main the {industry} development.
