Hynix has introduced 4Gb mobile DDR SDRAM chips, these will be used for Intel's Moorestown platform for Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs).
This high density memory device packs twice the storage capacity over current 2Gb mobile memory solutions and is offered in small form factor packages such as MCP (Multi Chip Package) and PoP(Package on Package). It boasts maximum operating speed of 400Mbps (Megabits per second), processing up to 1.6GB (Gigabytes) of data per second with a 32-bit I/O.
The product complies with the JEDEC standards, and is well suited for next generation mobile applications such as MID, NetBooks and High-end smart-phones requiring high density, high speed memory and featuring low power consumption. High bandwidth memory functions such as high speed downloads, graphics and video processing will be well supported by this product.
The company plans to start mass production of this product in the third quarter of 2009, to satisfy the increasing demand for high density and high performance memory in mobile applications.
