Micron Technology, Inc., first to sample DDR2 SODIMM modules with Intel.
Micron Technology Micron Technology ("Micron") NYSE: MU is a multinational company based in Boise, Idaho, USA, best known for producing many forms of semiconductor devices. This includes DRAM, SDRAM, flash memory, and CMOS image sensing chips. , Inc., (NYSE NYSE
See: New York Stock Exchange :MU) has announced that it has sampled the first DDR2 SDRAM See SDRAM. SODIMM (Small Outline-DIMM) A DIMM module with a thinner profile due to the use of TSOP chip packages. SODIMMs are commonly used in laptop computers. See memory module and TSOP. modules to Intel. DDR (Double Data Rate) Refers to an SDRAM memory chip that increases performance by doubling the effective data rate of the frontside bus. For more details, see SDRAM.
DDR - Double Data Rate Random Access Memory 2 SODIMM modules provide significant benefits to notebook PCs, including space saving form factor, low power consumption, improved thermal characteristics, and high bandwidth. Micron is providing DDR2 SODIMMs in various module configurations. These configurations include 128MB and 256MB using x16 and x8 components.
"Micron's SODIMM modules are running in our early DDR2 development systems," said Pete MacWilliams, Senior Fellow Intel Corporation. "The sampling of these SODIMM modules fills out Micron's DDR2 SDRAM offering--giving them DDR2 solutions for desktops, servers, and portable computers."
"Micron is taking the lead in providing next-generation memory for portable applications," said Terry Lee, Executive Director of Advanced Technology and Strategic Marketing for Micron's Computing and Consumer Group. "These modules combine the benefits of DDR2's low power dissipation with the small form factor of SODIMMs. They are ideal for emerging notebook solutions. We are pleased to again demonstrate Micron's ongoing strength and commitment to our customers by being first to sample these modules to Intel."
