“… turn left after 300 metres” commands a friendly voice to the driver. Unfortunately, you can no longer turn left as the street has been blocked off since the navigation system was purchased. Those who would like to avoid such frustrating moments and also would like to drive along the newly opened bypasses must depend on current map materials. Starting at the end of September, Hama’s elaborate distribution channels will provide four upgrade versions for PNAs (Personal Navigation Assistant), thus allowing you to upgrade to the latest Navigon software MobileNavigator 6. Preinstalled on the SD memory cards, the upgrades are suitable for most mobile devices.
Samsung Electronics Co., the world leader in advanced semi-conductor technology solutions, announced major component technology advancements including the 40-nanometer (nm) 32-Gigabit (Gb) NAND flash, the first prototype of the next-generation of memory PRAM (Phase-change Random Access Memory), and a new System-on-Chip controller for the soon-to-be-released Hybrid Hard Disk Drive. “The phenomenal shift in the popularity of digital products that we are experiencing today is rooted in the virtually non-stop string of advances being seen in semiconductor technology,” said Dr. Chang Gyu Hwang, president and CEO of Samsung Electronics’ at its sixth annual press conference held at the Shilla Hotel.
Some developments are so ground breaking that you just have to give them your attention. Take the new SanDisk Extreme IV CompactFlash memory cards, for example; they are already ahead of things that have not even been put on the market yet. With the Extreme IV CF, SanDisk is so far ahead of the competition that they don't stand a chance of catching up with them in the foreseeable future. SanDisk was already firmly in control of the professional memory card market, partly due to the Extreme III card. The introduction and sale of the SanDisk Extreme IV gives professional photographers a very interesting solution to problems with memory. Let's take a look at the figures: Extreme III has a very respectable speed of 20MB/sec for both reading and writing data. Nothing wrong with that, you would think, but the SanDisk Extreme IV CompactFlash memory card does 40MB/sec. This is double the speed and means that SanDisk has produced the fastest memory card in the world!
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced semiconductor technology solutions, announced that it has completed the first working prototype of what is expected to be the main memory device to replace high density NOR flash within the next decade a Phase-change Random Access Memory (PRAM). The company unveiled the 512Megabit (Mb) device at its sixth annual press conference in Seoul today. More scalable than any other memory architecture being researched, PRAM features the fast processing speed of RAM for its operating functions combined with the non-volatile features of flash memory for storage, giving it the nickname: perfect RAM.
SanDisk Corporation today announced a 4-gigabyte (GB) miniSD High Capacity (SDHC) flash card at the CTIA Wireless Show, where the company is exhibiting. The 4GB SanDisk miniSDHC card will be able to provide the fast speed and large capacity required to support increasingly popular but storage-intensive applications such as digital imaging, music and video record/playback functions as well as mobile television and videogames. The 4GB capacity can store more than 2,000 high-resolution pictures, more than 1,000 digital songs or up to 8 hours of MPEG 4 video. Retail release of the card is planned for 2007, the price has not yet been determined.
Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., the world leader in advanced semiconductor technology solutions, today announced that it has developed the industry’s first 40-nanometer (nm) memory device. The new 32 Gigabit (Gb) NAND flash device is the first memory to incorporate a Charge Trap Flash (CTF) architecture, a revolutionary new approach to further increase manufacturing efficiency while greatly improving performance. The new CTF-based NAND flash memory increases the reliability of the memory by sharply reducing inter-cell noise levels. Its surprisingly simple structure also enables higher scalability, which will eventually improve manufacturing process technology from 40 nm to 30 and even 20nm.
