SK Hynix will become the second manufacturer to master production of DRAM 10-nanometer class
According to the source, the company SK Hynix intends in the second quarter of 2017 to begin mass production of chips of memory DRAM according to the norms of 10-nanometer of a class. In this case, it will become the second manufacturer producing this product. Be the first to release a DRAM of 10-nanometer of a class beginning, the company Samsung Electronics.
After completing the development of DRAM memory, is designed to produce technologists by 10-nanometer-class first generation (1x), SK Hynix is planning to immediately undertake generation 1Y and 1z.
