Cupertino, Calif.-- Dec. 18, 1997--Siemens today introduced thenew Synchronous Dual Inline Memory Module (DIMM) familyfor system-boards operating at 100-MHz bus frequency.
The new family meets the AC requirements of Intel's PC 100 specifications and will be used as main memory for the next generation of PCs using 100-MHz core logic chipsets. The Siemens DIMMs are fully layout compatible, with the current PC 100 module specifications.
The DIMMs are based on 16-Mbit and 64-Mbit Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM)technology. The devices are presently being manufactured at Siemens chip production facility in Dresden (Germany), Essonnes (France), and North Tyneside (U.K.). During 1998, production will expand in ProMOS (Taiwan) and White Oak (U.S.).
Within this family the 168-pin unbuffered memory modules with capacities of 16, 32, 64 and 128 Mbytes are now available in organizations of 2Mx64/72, 4Mx64/72, 8Mx64/72, and 16Mx64/72.
