LONDON Elpida Memory will start sampling next month a 2-gigabit DDR2 Mobile RAM, targeting smartphones, netbooks and mobile Internet devices.
The Japanese group is using its low-voltage and low power consumption technology for the part that will operate at 1.2V and achieve a data transfer rate of 800Mbits/s.
Elpida says the part needs as little as 1/16th the power consumption when on standby, compared with other same-density and same-speed DDR2 products. It suggests the device features the highest density for a JEDEC LPDDR2 compatible mobile memory.
The part comes as a bare chip for use in SiP (System in Package), MCP (Multi-chip Package) and other multi-layer packages or it can be packaged for a PoP (Package on Package) configuration.
Volume production is slated for the first half of 2010.
