Micron Unveils New 1-Gigabit Mobile DRAM Chip and Will Bundle With NAND For Compact Multichip Packages.
BOISE, Idaho & BARCELONA, Spain -- At the 3GSM World Congress today, Micron Technology, Inc., (NYSE:MU), introduced a new 1 Gigabit (Gb) Mobile DRAM for popular high-end, feature rich mobile phones with multimedia and computing features. The company will bundle the new 1 Gb Mobile DRAM with 1, 2 and 4 Gb density NAND flash memory, creating a powerful memory combination. The bundled Mobile DRAM and NAND package, commonly referred to as a multichip package (MCP), consumes less real estate in mobile phones, providing extra space to design in more features or create a sleeker, slimmer product.
"As the mobile phone market continues to offer more content such as music, pictures and video, there is a critical need for more compact memory storage solutions," said Brian Shirley, vice president of Micron's memory group. "Micron continues to innovate and execute by introducing new memory designs, evident today with our new 1 Gigabit Mobile DRAM chip. And by combining our new chip with various NAND densities, it distinguishes us from the competition and provides our customers with a compact memory solution for high-density data storage applications."
Designed on the 78-nanometer process technology, Micron's new 1 Gb chip joins a family of Mobile DRAM products ranging from 64 Megabit (Mb) to 512 Mb. Micron's Mobile DRAM products feature the company's exclusive Endur-IC[TM] technology, which leverages advanced stacked processes and a combination of other unique design methodologies to deliver low power, high quality, high reliability and overall greater performance to wireless, handheld products.
As the intersection of computing, mobile and camera capabilities continues to drive the development of exciting new portable products, Micron provides customers with a complete solution for their design requirements, including Mobile DRAM, CellularRAM[TM] memory, NAND Flash, and DigitalClarity[TM] CMOS image sensors.

Micron is showcasing its mobile memory portfolio at the 3GSM World Congress, held this week in Barcelona, Spain. A variety of Micron image sensor and mobile memory product demonstrations will take place at its booth on the exhibit floor in hall one, space 1H21.
Micron will begin sampling the 1 Gb Mobile DRAM to strategic customers this month, with mass production expected in the third quarter. Additionally, Micron will begin sampling the 1 Gb Mobile DRAM and 1 Gb NAND MCP in the second quarter 2007 and will begin sampling the 2 and 4 Gb NAND MCPs in summer 2007.
