Samsung Electronics said that it reached a milestone last month, by selling its 10 millionth (256Mb equivalent) DDR2 DRAM chip.
“Samsung has been working on developing and expanding the DDR2 DRAM market for years. R&D began in 1998, and by May 2002 the company had completed the world’s first 512Mb DDR2 SDRAM. In October 2003, Samsung also became the first to ship mass produced DDR2s,” the company said in its statement.

Following the launch of chipsets supporting DDR2 technology in June, Samsung’s aggregate DDR2 sales broke 10 million units in July. The company believes that aggressive transition to new fabrication processes and experience in DRAM business have helped the company to maintain its DDR2 leadership. Still, the company’s market share in Q2 2004 was lower compared to last year’s figures, analysts estimate.
