The Infineon 512MB DDR2-800 unbuffered DIMMs increase data throughput of desktop PCs by around 20 percent compared to current high-performance memory modules and perfectly match with the most advanced processor front-side bus. They are designed for end-users who do not want to overclock their systems. Due to the industry leading low power features of its DDR2 memory products, Infineon is the only DRAM supplier who abandons the usage of an extra heatspreader which is standard for high speed modules with data rates of 800Mbit/s.
Infineon offers DDR2-800 unbuffered modules with densities of 256MB and 512MB. The 256MB and 512MB modules are based on Infineon's 256Mbit DDR2 components. Samples of the 256MB and 512MB modules are available for customers now. Volume production is planned to start in June 2005.
Infineon is sampling dual-die-based 8GB DDR2-400 Tall Registered DIMMs for proprietary server applications which are not based on Intel- or AMD-chipsets. The new module consists of 36 dual-die-based 2Gbit (Gigabit) DDR2 components, realized by stacking two 1Gbit DDR2 SDRAMs in one package.
Dual-die technology allows doubling of the maximum memory density while increasing component height by only 0.1mm. With a 4.1mm module thickness and 55mm height, the 8GB DDR2-400 Tall registered DIMMs are about 40 percent thinner than comparable solutions, hence outperforming customers’ requirements for stacked solutions. Thinner modules are beneficial for airflow and thermal conditions in current high-end server systems. Thermal conditions are further improved by the use of the Infineon low-power DDR2 components.
