SAMSUNG VOLUME SHIPPING DDR400 PC3200 MODULES NOW.

Samsung Semiconductor, Inc. has announced that it is first to volume ship Double-Data-Rate 400Mbps SDRAM (DDR400) modules in 128MB, 256MB and 512MB densities.

As the newest addition to Samsung's DDR SDRAM portfolio, the 400Mbps (200MHz) DDR devices are ideal for use as PC system main memory, offering three times the performance of Single-Data-Rate PC 133 SDRAM and 50 percent more bandwidth than mainstream DDR266.

The volume availability now of these high-speed memory modules further strengthens Samsung's position as the leading producer of DDR SDRAM memory devices. Samsung is ramping up to meet the growing market demand for this high-performance memory technology.

Early this year, Samsung was first to deliver engineering samples of DDR400 to major PC chipset companies, including NVIDIA, SiS and VIA. The devices have received positive feedback and leading-edge chipsets supporting DDR400 will soon be available.

"With Samsung's DDR400, chipset manufacturers and their customers are the real winners as they benefit from this extremely high-performance memory," said Tom Quinn, Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.'s vice president of marketing. "Samsung is totally committed to serving our customers by being first-to-market with leading-edge DDR SDRAM memory products."

Samsung is the industry's DDR SDRAM technology leader. In 2000, it was first to mass-produce DDR266. In August 2001, the company was first to commence mass production of DDR333 and now supports 128MB, 256MB and 512MB modules.

Samsung is also currently the world's largest supplier of DDR memory devices, with more than a 50 percent share of the DDR333 market. It has the highest number of industry-validated memory modules available. The company has been the DDR technology leader since July 1997, when it first proposed the bi-directional DDR SDRAM standard to JEDEC and demonstrated the first DDR silicon in a 64Mb device. Samsung plans to continue its leadership role in memory by being first-to-market with leading-edge devices in a wide range of configurations and densities.

Samsung DDR400 PC3200 modules are available through distribution. The 128MB and 256MB modules are shipping now. Part numbers are M368L1713DTL for the 128MB module and M368L3313DTL for the 256MB module. The 512MB module, part number M368L6423DTL, will be available late May.
