Micron today announced it is the first supplier to sample 2 gigabit (Gb) DDR2 components to a select server customer. Micron's 2Gb component is designed to enable up to 8GB high density modules, providing more memory per server with less space and power consumption than current component offerings.
"Delivering the first functional 2Gb components is a pinnacle milestone that clearly defines our progress, distinguishes us from our competition and highlights our commitment to the server market," said Terry Lee, executive director of Advanced Technology and Strategic Marketing for Micron's Systems Memory Group. "By being the first to provide the server market with these 2Gb DDR2 components, we expect to enable customers to immediately begin the testing and qualification process, thus speeding their time to market."
Sampling of the 2Gb DDR2 components reiterates Micron's leadership position in providing customers with advanced memory solutions. Previously, Micron announced the first validations of 1Gb DDR2 and 1Gb DDR devices for all leading x86 server platforms, as well as first availabilities of VLP registered dual-inline memory modules (RDIMMs), 110nm 1Gb DDR, 1Gb DDR2, 4GB DDR RDIMMs, and 4GB DDR2 RDIMMs.
Engineering samples are expected to be made publicly available in the second half of 2005.
