Samsung Electronics Co., the world's largest computer chip maker, said Tuesday (Oct. 23) that it has developed the world's first flash memory chip based on 30-nanometer production technology.

The new flash memory, to be used mostly in portable devices such as mobile handsets, digital cameras and music players, will create a US20 billion market over the next three years, Samsung said.
