Rambus announced that Qimonda recently signed a technology license agreement for the Rambus XDR memory interface solution. The Rambus XDR solution will be implemented in Qimonda's 75nm process technology for integration into high-volume applications, including game consoles, digital televisions, set-top boxes and PC graphics.
"Since signing a patent license agreement with Qimonda, we have worked towards a relationship where our engineering teams could collaborate on leadership memory solutions to serve the global market," said Sharon Holt, senior vice president of Worldwide Sales, Licensing and Marketing at Rambus. "We are very proud to be working with Qimonda to deliver this advanced memory product for a growing number of applications in computing and digital entertainment."
"The XDR memory solution completes our broad graphics RAM portfolio to better serve high-performance and high-bandwidth applications for the fast growing global computing and consumer electronics markets," said Robert Feurle, vice president and general manager of Graphics DRAM at Qimonda.
Rambus XDR DRAM, as part of the XDR memory architecture, achieves an order of magnitude higher performance than today's standard memories. Perfect for graphics processing, consumer electronics, network, and server applications, a single, 2-byte wide, 3.2 GHz XDR DRAM component provides 6.4 GB/sec of peak bandwidth, and enables PCB savings and cost savings by utilizing the fewest number of ICs.
