Elpida Unveils Industry’s First 2-Gigabit DDR2 Mobile RAM
The new 2-Gigabit Mobile RAM has the highest density of LPDDR2 JEDEC (DDR2 Mobile RAM) compatible device.
Elpida has relied on its low voltage technology and low power consumption for a device that can operate at 1.2V (conventional Mobile DDR RAM requires 1.8V), while achieving high speed data transfer rate of 800Mbps (DDR Mobile RAM 400 Mbps). Furthermore, compared with the same density and other products of the same speed DDR2, as little as 1/16th the power consumption is required when the standby mode, making it an eco-friendly DRAM.
Due to its high density, low power consumption and high-speed functionality in the new device can make an important contribution to the development of innovative high-end mobile applications for mobile phones and smart phones in areas such as the growing market for Netbooks and MID (Mobile Internet Devices).
The new device can meet a variety of customer needs. It can be sent as a bare chip for use in SiP (System in Package), MCP (multi-chip package) and several other layer packets, or can be packaged for a PoP (package on package) configuration to allow space-saving features.
Sample shipments are expected to begin in October 2009 with the launch of mass production scheduled in the first half of 2010.
