Samsung announces several new semiconductor achievements.
Samsung introduces Industry's first 60-Nanometer 8-Gigabit NAND Flash Memory, which makes it possible to build 16GB flash memory cards.
Samsung's 60nm process technology is two thousandths the width of a piece of human hair, and achieves approximately 30 percent reduction in cell size over the 70nm 4Gb NAND Flash memory developed last year. The result is the world's smallest 0.0082㎛2 per bit cell size.
The key to development at such high densities and fine circuitry design is a 3-D cell transistor structure and high-dielectric gate insulating technology that minimizes the interference level between cells.
