Samsung Electronics says that it has become the first company to complete development of a 288Mb Direct Rambus DRAM (RDRAM) component and a 576Mb Rambus In-line Memory Module (RIMM module).

The new RDRAM, which uses 0.17-micron process technology, offers data processing speed at each pin of 800Mb/second, enabling the device to process the equivalent of 6,550 newspaper pages of information/second. The 288Mb RDRAM also features a new standardised Micro ball grid array package.

To create a 576Mb RIMM module, sixteen 288Mb RDRAM components can be configured together. The module can support current PC systems with up to 1Gb, or workstations and server systems with up to 8Gb of capacity.

Availability and pricing were not revealed.
