Micron said that it is the first memory supplier to ship 256Mbit, 512Mbit and 1Gbit DDR2 components. These provide the base for a line of registered and unbuffered line of memory modules ranging in densities from 128MB to 4GB.
In the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2003 (ended August 28), Micron has shipped US$1 million worth of DDR chips and expects the number to increase tenfold in the first quarter of fiscal year 2004, Terry Lee, executive director of advanced technology and strategic marketing for Micron’s computing and consumer group told DigiTimes in a phone interview.
“Micron’s efforts in technology development and customer enablement are paying off,” said Lee in the press statement. “We have a full complement of DDR2 densities and module configurations. Coupled with our existing position on DDR333/400, this makes Micron uniquely qualified to meet the memory requirements for notebook PCs, emerging dual-channel desktop PCs and servers.”
Micron rival Hynix Semiconductor in August said it plans to begin volume production of 1Gbit DDR2 chips in early 2004 to coincide with the release of Intel’s DDR2 chipset.
