Micron Advances Innovation with Industry First 176-Layer NAND and 1-Alpha DRAM

Micron Technology, unveiled memory and storage innovations across its portfolio based on its industry-leading 176-layer NAND and 1α (1-alpha) DRAM technology, as well as the industry’s first Universal Flash Storage (UFS) 3.1 solution for automotive applications. The new portfolio additions deliver on the company’s vision of accelerating data-driven insights through innovations in memory and storage that enable new capabilities from the data center to the intelligent edge. Micron President and CEO Sanjay Mehrotra made the announcements during a Computex keynote, in which he shared a sweeping vision for computing innovation and the central role memory and storage play in enabling enterprises to seize the full potential of the data economy.

Micron announced volume delivery of its first PCIe Gen4 solid-state drives (SSDs) built with the world’s first 176-layer NAND. The company is also shipping the world’s first 1α node-based LPDDR4x DRAM this month. LPDDR4x is the latest JEDEC specification for fourth-generation low-power DRAM with improved input/output voltage for substantially lower power, making it ideal for mobile computing devices. Together, these latest releases reinforce Micron’s leadership position in both DRAM and NAND technology, established this year.

Micron PCIe Gen4 SSD portfolio is designed to tackle demanding client applications 

The company’s latest SSDs, the Micron 3400 and 2450, deliver high performance and design flexibility with low power consumption to enable all-day use from professional workstations to ultrathin notebooks. The Micron 3400 SSD provides twice the read throughput and up to 85% higher write throughput, unleashing demanding applications like real-time 3D rendering, computer-aided design, gaming and animation. For customers seeking the best value with PCIe Gen4 performance, the Micron 2450 SSD delivers a highly responsive user experience for everyday use. The 2450 SSD is available in three form factors, as small as the 22 x 30mm M.2, to deliver immense design flexibility.
