Contract pricing for NAND flash memory surged by 20 to 25 percent in the first quarter, a strong testament to the undersupply condition that persists in the market, according to DRAMeXchange, a firm that tracks memory chip pricing.

NAND revenue typically falls off considerably between the seasonally strong fourth quarter of the preceding year and the first quarter of the next, traditionally a slow season for end device shipments. However, in the first quarter of this year, global NAND revenue declined by just 0.4 percent, as the reduction of two-dimensional NAND capacity was severe enough to create tight demand, DRAMeXchange said.

Prices of mobile storage products such as embedded multichip packages or eMCPs, embedded multimedia cards or eMMCs and universal flash storage or UFS also continue climbing, DRAMeXchange said.
