Samsung recently announced a range of memory modules for smartphones and tablets that rely on the new eMMC 5.1 specification. JEDEC, the semiconductor standards organization, approved the eMMC 5.1 specification earlier this year. The eMMC spec is for storage embedded directly into the logic board of smartphones and tablets. According to Samsung, it has 16GB, 32GB, and 64GB memory modules on deck. They offer sequential reading speeds up to 250Mbps and sequential writing speeds up to 150Mbps. The spec's random read/write speeds are seven and 26 times faster than the previous generation. Other new features include a first command queue function, which improves multitasking capabilities and can handle simultaneous streaming and playback of 4K video content. The eMMC 5.1 solutions also have a security protocol that allows only designated users to access secured portions of the memory. Samsung said it is ready to ship eMMC 5.1-based memory products to its smartphone and tablet manufacturing partners. The products will reach consumers later this year.
