"The expansion of our production based on 90 nm process technology enables Elpida to significantly improve the speed yield and packaging options of our high-volume DDR2 products," said Jun Kitano, director of technical marketing for Elpida Memory (USA) Inc. "With this new generation of DDR2, we now offer more device configurations, including x4, x8 and x16, as well as a full line-up of memory modules, including Registered DIMMs, FB-DIMMs, UDIMMs and SO-DIMMs."
The 1 Gigabit DDR2 SDRAM devices are available in four different data rate speeds: 800 Mega bits per second (Mbps), 667 Mbps, 533 Mbps or 400 Mbps. They are organized as either 32 M words x 4 bits x 8 banks, 16 M words x 8 bits x 8 banks, or as 8 M words x 16 bits x 8 banks. The high speed data transfer rate is achieved by its 4-bit prefetch, pipelined architecture. The supply voltage (VDD) is 1.8V +/- 0.1V, and the operating temperature range (Tc) is 0-95 deg C. The devices are available in 68-ball or 92-ball FBGA packages for easy mounting on DIMMs.
Elpida's new 1 Gigabit devices in stacked FBGA (sFBGA) packages enable thinner module design which is critical for notebook PCs and blade servers that require high-density memory. Elpida will offer six DIMMs based on the new 1 Gigabit devices:
Process : 90 nm Organization : 32 M words x 4 bits x 8 banks, 16 M words x 8 bits x 8 banks, or 8 M words x 16 bits x 8 banks Supply voltage (VDD) : 1.8V +/- 0.1V DDR2 Data Rates : 800 Mbps, 667 Mbps, 533 Mbps, or 400 Mbps Interface : SSTL CAS Latency (CL) : 3, 4, 5 Operating temperature: range Tc = 0-95 deg C Packages: 68-ball or 92-ball FBGA
Elpida's 1 Gigabit DDR2 x4/x8 devices based on 90 nm process technology are available now in sample quantities. Registered DIMMs based on the new devices are also available now. 1 Gigabit DDR2 x16 devices, Fully-Buffered DIMMs, Small Outline DIMMs and Unbuffered DIMMs will be available in Q2 2006.
