Consumers want more features and functionality from their ultrathin computing devices, mobile phones and automotive infotainment systems—and you are expected to deliver them in less time while balancing performance with power and space constraints. We understand those design challenges and offer a wide range of low-power DRAM (LPDRAM) parts to address them. Our low-power DRAM (LPDRAM) has the low power consumption, high performance, choice of densities, and wide temperature ranges to help you get the most out of your design.

Industrial IOT an Automotive Solutions: NAND based MCP package with 162-ball configuration

Whether you’re trying to minimize power consumption, maximize density, increase speed, or do everything at once, Micron’s NAND MCPs can drive your design no matter the application. Get the reliability your space-constrained design needs with our fully tested, stackable MCPs and PoPs in a variety of packages and technology options—and from a memory provider who manufactures all of the memory elements—including the NAND Flash and mobile LPDRAM.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between phone "storage" and phone "memory"?

Your smartphone's internal "storage", also known as flash memory, is non-volatile memory and keeps your data stored. This would include data such as your pictures, videos, operating system, and setting and preference. Your smartphone's "memory", also known as Low Power DRAM, it is a type of volatile storage that retains data only while the device is powered on. It’s used for storing data that’s being processed by the CPU, like running applications or playing music. Phone memory or RAM (random-access memory) is the temporary memory that holds data and apps currently in use. The more RAM in a phone, the more apps can be opened and used simultaneously; likewise, the faster the RAM, the faster the phone operates. For game applications, more and faster RAM can lead to a better gaming experience.

What is the difference between LPDDR5X, LPDDR5 and LPDDR4?

Bandwidth/latency speeds LPDDR5X, LPDDR5 and LPDDR4 are all types of mobile DRAM (dynamic random-access memory), where LP stands for low power. The numbers 5X, 5 and 4 denote the generation of memory, with 5X being the latest, most advanced generation of LPDRAM. Overall, each new generation of LPDRAM comes with better power efficiency, higher capacity and faster speeds. LPDDR5X is seen in the latest flagship smartphones.

Do AI phone applications use a lot of memory and storage?

AI (artificial intelligence) features in a phone can consume phone storage and memory, but the exact amount depends on the specific implementation and use of the AI feature. Many AI features require storage space for AI algorithms that enable them to function. And for them to run smoothly and quickly, more memory use is also required. It's a good idea to choose a phone with enough storage and memory for your needs, especially if you plan to use AI features or run AI apps on your smartphone.

What smartphone applications use AI?

Many applications use some aspects of AI in their processing. The most obvious are built-in digital assistants. Other applications may not be as obvious, like night mode and filters on your camera and photo-editing software. AI is becoming ubiquitous across the smartphone user experience, and its use is growing rapidly.​

What are the benefits of smaller and thinner UFS 4.0?
Smaller and thinner UFS 4.0 storage requirements are driven by the need to accommodate next generation slimmer smartphone form factors and increased battery size demands, resulting in surrounding components to shrink.
